Say hello to gelatin! Fun to serve and easy to make, gelatin treats are good for the skeleton.


Gelatin contains amino acids beneficial for skin, hair, and joint health. Spruce up this super-powered ingredient with our choose your flavour tasty gelatin treat recipe! (Remember, treats should comprise no more than 10% of your dog’s daily caloric intake.)



  • ¼ cup cold water
  • ¼ cup hot water
  • 1 Tbsp plain unflavoured gelatin*

*Warning: any flavoured or artificially sweetened gelatin products like Jell-o brand can be potentially toxic to dogs so make sure to use plain, unflavoured varieties of gelatin. We like Great Lakes Gelatin.


Choose Your Flavour: 

Coconut Water + Coconut 

  • 2 Tbsp unsweetened coconut 
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut water 

Broth + Parsley 

  • 2 Tbsp fresh parsley (chopped) 
  • 1 cup low sodium broth 

Pumpkin + Cinnamon 

  • 1 cup pumpkin puree 
  • ¹⁄₈  tsp cinnamon 

Low-cal Jelly Jiggler (great for dogs on a diet!) 

  • 1 cup of water 
  • 2 Tbsp of your dog’s favourite treat (crumbled or chopped) 



  1. Pour ¼ cup of cold water in a bowl, sprinkle with 1 Tbsp gelatin 
  2. Pour ¼ cup of hot water over the gelatin and whisk until dissolved 
  3. Combine gelatin mixture with desired add in. Pour into ice cube trays, moulds or a glass baking pan. 
  4. Cover and chill for 3 hours. Cut and/or un-mould into small individual treats. Will keep refrigerated for up to 4 days. 
Does your dog have seizures?  There is anecdotal evidence that gelatin can help control seizures in dogs (it has been shown to do so in experiments with mice). If your dog has two or more seizures a month, talk to your vet about gelatin. 


If your dog is on a protein-restricted diet (if he has chronic kidney or liver disease, for example), avoid any treats unless you consult your veterinarian first.

Hmm it seems like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so
I guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.
I too am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to everything.
Do you have any points for beginner blog writers? I'd
certainly appreciate it.

I'm amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that's equally educative
and amusing, and let me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head.
The problem is something that not enough people are speaking
intelligently about. Now i'm very happy I came across this during my search for something concerning this.
