My dog Shirl absolutely loves these de-flea treats. They have lots of other goodies in them, such as wheatgerm for vitamin E and linseed for omega 3 fatty acids. Do keep them in an air-tight container, as one batch I made went mouldy after a week. Not that Shirl seemed to mind!
Doggy De-flea Treat Recipe
3 tsp Maggi beef stock powder (or dissolve 2 tsp Marmite or Vegemite in the hot water below)
3 1/2 cups wholemeal flour
½ cup wheatgerm
½ cup bran
½ cup linseed
2/3 cup Brewer’s Yeast
2 Tbs garlic granules (in spice aisle of your local supermarket)
1 1/2 cups hot water
Mix all the ingredients together, except the eggs and water. Mix in the eggs, then slowly add the hot water, stirring all the time until you have a workable dough (stickier the better). Roll out, cut into shapes and place on a greased tray. Bake at 180 degrees C for 20 minutes, and then turn off the oven and leave to harden overnight, or at least a few hours.
For large dogs give 2 to 3 doggy de-fleat treats a day, smaller dogs 1 or 2.
