We all have our favorite treats, and so do dogs! Your pup might not care what’s in their go-to snack, but you should. Finding healthy dog treats can be a hassle, especially considering the exhaustive ingredients list.

Fiber is essential for both humans and dogs, but many treats don’t supply the amount dogs need. If your furry friend requires more fiber, heading to the kitchen and making dog treats yourself is your best bet. This high-fiber dog treats recipe will provide your dog with better nutrition and a delicious bite.

Our DIY dog treats recipe is easy enough for anyone to make in under 30 minutes; it only requires six simple ingredients (most of which you probably already have) and has a tasty flavor they’ll love. When psyllium husk dog treats are difficult to find, learn how to choose the right ingredients with this guide and the recipe below.

How Much Fiber Does a Dog Need?!

As mentioned in a previous blog post, your dog also needs fiber in their diet! Just like for you, a well-rounded mix of foods with enough fiber alleviates constipation, diarrhea, and even the risk of diabetes.
So, how much fiber should a dog have in its diet? It’s vital to consider the amount of fiber in your dog’s food and treats. Soluble and insoluble fiber should both be included in their food and snacks, ranging between 5–10% or 25–35 grams per day, depending on your pup’s nutritional needs.

 What is Good Fiber for Dogs?

How do you give your pets more fiber and ensure their diet doesn’t contain harmful ingredients? Providing dogs supplements, healthier treats, and whole vegetables and fruits can help improve their health.

Fruits and vegetables including apples, blueberries, broccoli, brussels sprouts, carrots, green beans, and sweet potatoes are all safe for dogs and high in fiber. Canned pumpkin puree (as long as it’s pure) is an excellent addition to any meal as well.
Whole grains such as barley, brown rice, oats (which you will find in our recipe), and quinoa are found in many dog products. Any of these are easy and beneficial to mix into their food for an added boost.

Buying raw food and treats that contain high-fiber and other natural and nutritional ingredients is also an option, though it can get expensive. Supplementing their existing food might be more cost-friendly and effective. Remember that you should slowly introduce new foods to your dog to confirm that their system can handle it and avoid gut pain and other issues.

We have many free healthy recipes for people, but that’s not all. With this easy dog treat recipe, there’s good reason to want to get a little creative in the kitchen for your furry friends, too! Unlike store-bought dog treats, homemade fiber treats for dogs are free from preservatives and you get to decide what goes in them. Here at Naturlax, we crafted a fiber-packed dog treat recipe to restore balance to their diets. We used our Pure Psyllium Husk Fiber Powder for extra gut-healthy fiber. Since this fiber powder is plant-based, it’s safe and effective for your canine companions.
