  1. Hi Dr Angie,
    I think your recipes sound great and am eager to try them out, however I noted you have mentioned avocado as an alternative ingredient. I have read numerous articles that say they can cause dogs gastrointestinal problems. Are they really safe?

      Hi Chenee,

      Thanks for your comment. Avocados are non toxic but are high in fat. For some dogs this can cause pancreatitis. The pit is also a choking hazard and can cause obstruction.

      Hope this helps!

      Dr. Angie

  2. I usually mix canned salmon or tuna with cottage cheese and kibble and then freeze – I also like to stick a bully stick or milk bone out of the top for something extra for them to chew on 🙂
