Prescription Diet Treat Recipes

My vet gave these recipes to my mom so I thought I would share them with all you other huskies!

The following recipes will allow your pet to stay strictly on his/her prescribed det and still feel special and spoiled.

Bite Sized Canned Treats
Simply cut up some bite sized pices of canned Prescription Diet and bake in your microwave oven for 2 1/2 to 3 minutes.

Prescription Diet Cookies (canned)
Slice the canned product into 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick pieces. Place 3 cookies on a microwave safe plate. Bake on high for 3 minutes. Turn cookies over and bake for an additional 1 to 3 minutes.
(For conventional oven bake 20 minutes at 350 degrees.)

Prescription Diet Cookies (Using dry form diets)
Grind the kibbles into flour using a blender and mix with enough water to form a dough. Shape cookies and bake them on a cookie sheet for apporximately half an hour at 350 degrees until crispy.

Three important points to remember...
1. It is very important for your pets to remain strictly on his/her prescribed diet.

2. Treats should not exceed 5% of your pets total daily intake.

3. Making these treats for your pet will change the texture but not damage the an excellent treat, while still feeding the necessary diet.

A Little Setback

Haven't posted an update for's what's been going on.

On Thursday, April mom took me out for my five minute walk in the afternoon. I was all hyper and happy to be out. We walked down our property line and decided to go straight instead of turning. Ohhhhhhhh...all those new scents. I kept stopping and smelling and mom kept trying to keep me going. I was walking in circles around her and she went to get the leash in the other hand when I stopped and the leash came around me. I immediately went straight down and then let out the post painful yowl! My mom was trying to talk me out of it saying "It's okay...It's okay." but I looked up at her and she could see the intense pain in my eyes. She got me rolled on my side and then I stopped with the yowling. I got up but would not walk on my leg. We turned back and went back to the house.

After giving me pain meds and waiting until the next day, I was still not walking on it so they called the vet. He said to keep the pain meds in and bring me in on Monday.

Monday I was loaded up in the Jeep again and was not happy to be going back. They made me spend the whole day there. I got to go on a couple short walks with my new friend in the white coat and things were fine. He called my dad and told him that I had just tore some scar tissue that had built up...which can be very painful when torn. It has set me back a few days (almost a week) and what a shame because I was feeling so good and walking on my leg pretty well.

So, that's what has been happening!
