Pumpkin and Liver Leather Chews for Dogs

It’s the time of year when pumpkin recipes are in full swing. Pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, and now – dog treats! These homemade “pumpkin liver leather chews” for dogs are super easy to make.

They’re made with just 3 simple ingredients: pumpkin (duh), molasses, and liver sprinkles. You can even use canned organic pumpkin if you like. That’ll save you an extra step or two, but it won’t change the taste at all because there’s no sugar added to this recipe!

Here’s a funny story…. I was getting all of the decorations ready for Halloween. I had carved my pumpkins and put them all around the porch. I was finishing up with the last one when I heard my dog start barking. I turned around and saw her barking at the pumpkin I had just carved. I couldn’t believe it – she had never done that before!

I started to laugh, and then I realized that she must have been scared of the pumpkin because it had an angry face. It was so funny to see her barking at it like that. But it was fine as I soon distracted her with some pumpkin treats!

But I digress. Grab your pumpkin leftovers and cook them up in the microwave or use a can of pumpkin puree and make these super chewy treats for your dog. They will spend ages munching away in bliss on these healthy treats!

Pumpkins are a great source of fiber for dogs, and they can help with weight control and digestion. They’re also a good source of vitamins A and C, as well as beta-carotene. Pumpkin is also a great source of antioxidants, which reduce the risk of cancer and infections.

Pumpkins can help dogs with diarrhea because they’re a good source of fiber. Fiber helps to regulate the digestive system and can help to stop diarrhea.

Liver

Liver is an excellent source of protein, vitamin A, vitamin B12, iron, and zinc. It’s also a good source of omega-3 fatty acids.

Liver is beneficial for dogs because it helps to maintain healthy skin and fur. It also supports the immune system and helps to improve cognitive function. Liver is also a good source of antioxidants, which help to protect cells from damage.

Molasses

Molasses is a thick, sweet syrup that’s made from sugarcane or sugar beets. It’s a popular ingredient in baking, and it’s also used to make rum and whiskey! Molasses is an excellent source of iron, calcium, and magnesium. It also contains some vitamin B6 and vitamin C. While it doesn’t pack as much of a nutritional punch as pumpkin, it can be beneficial because it’s not too hard on the stomach for dogs. It also helps to provide minerals like zinc and copper that are important for the health of your pup.
