10 Oct Delicious Pumpkin CBD Treats for your Pets
On Halloween night with all of those trick-or-treaters, or Thanksgiving day with a house full of people, pets need a little extra love. A delicious pumpkin CBD treat might help them feel like they’re part of the festivities. Speak with your vet before giving your pet CBD to ensure that it’s a good idea for them. Some vets may not be able to discuss it, but if you are interested in giving your pets CBD it’s best to have that conversation first.
These treats are easy to make, and you can have them yourself.
Pumpkin Overnight Oats
A spoonful or two of pumpkin overnight oats can be a fun treat for your pet. You can easily mix it in with their dry food or other prepared food. This is filling, so they only need a spoonful with their meal.
½ cup water or safe dairy-free milk option
2 tablespoons pure pumpkin puree
1 tablespoon maple syrup
½ cup rolled oats
½ teaspoon cinnamon
Place all ingredients minus the dose of CBD in a bowl. The liquid will help soften the oats. You can put these in a crockpot overnight or they can just be covered and refrigerated. Overnight means that they’ll sit in this liquid for 8hours, it can be done during the day. It doesn’t have to be overnight.
Stir everything well to incorporate all of the ingredients. Taste.
Warm slightly before serving if you choose the refrigerated option. Add the dose of CBD to a single portion. Serve with their meal or snack prior to a gathering or event.
Peanut Butter, Pumpkin and CBD Treats for Dogs
Dogs seem to like the flavor of peanut butter. Some dogs can’t resist peanut butter. Pumpkin has an appetizing aroma for them. With these treats, adding the CBD is a crucial step since the doses for pets are very different than they are for humans. It’s important that you follow the instructions exactly when it comes to adding the CBD to these treats.
2 ½ cups whole wheat flour (use an alternative flour if your dog has a gluten or grain sensitivity)
1 dose Pet Health CBD Olive Oil Tincture per treat
½ cup pure pumpkin puree (organic if it is available)
½ teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons peanut butter
½ teaspoon salt
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Whisk the egg until it is fluffy. Add the pumpkin, cinnamon and salt. Beat until it is incorporated. Warm the peanut butter in the microwave for 15 seconds to loosen it. Pour it into the pumpkin mixture and combine. Fold in the flour.
This will make a dough. Roll the dough out on a table. It will be a little dry. The dough should be ½-inch thick.
These treats should be ½ to 1-inch in size. Cut them into appropriate sizes.
Bake for 40 minutes. The long baking time ensures that the treats will come out nice and crispy.
When the treats come out of the oven, transfer them to a cooling rack. Wait 5 minutes and drop the appropriate dose of CBD onto each treat. Each treat should include just 1 dose of CBD. Give your pet only 1 treat unless they are on the stronger doses of CBD that are listed in our CBD Dosage Guide for Pets (linked in the previous recipe).
Store in an airtight container.
Let your pets celebrate fall with these fun pumpkin CBD treats. You can share the overnight oats with them. The hard cookies should be reserved for them.
