Vegan Breath Bones Recipe

My family has been vegan for a few years now, and I’m always looking to find doggie food options that contain real, healthy ingredients. Hazel has had some bad breath recently, so I started searching for breath bones online.

I was excited to see that V-Dog sells breath bones, until I realized that their bones contain  carrageenan, which is believed to cause cancer in dogs.

Other popular breath bone options, including Greenies, DENTASTIX, and Whimzees, all contained  glycerin as the second or third ingredient. Glycerin is the byproduct of soap manufacturing. It is commonly used as a laxative and for making antifreeze and explosives. Most importantly, it does nothing to help clean teeth.

So I decided the best option would be to make Hazel her own bones at home. I began by researching ingredients that helped with bad breath such as parsley, mint and cinnamon. And then I added whole foods like oats, carrots and broccoli.

For the egg substitute, I used 1 tablespoon flax seed mixed with 3 tablespoons warm water. I added them together in a small bowl and let the mixture sit for 5 minutes before adding them to the food processor.

Hazel definitely seems to like them!
