Pooch Pancakes

Pancake day is almost here and we’re sure your pooch will be as excited as you are for a delicious treat! The only problem is, some ingredients can be dangerous for doggos, which is why we have compiled a list of pawsome ingredients for your furbaby to enjoy.

 

Pancake Ingredients

  • 50g plain flour
  • 1 egg
  • 100ml water

Pancake Method

  1. Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat
  2. Whisk 50g plain flour, 1 egg and 100ml water together
  3. Pour the mixture into the pan and cook until golden on each side.

Toppings

If you’re a sweet lover, you may be guilty of smothering your pancakes in chocolate, golden syrup or whipped cream, but these can give your furry companion a bad tummy. Opt for alternative mouth-watering toppings such as bananas, blueberries, peanut butter (that’s xylitol-free) or even dog biscuits. Not only are these healthier, but they will go down a treat!

Nutritional Advice

Although we love treating our furbabies, as with all snacks, it’s important to monitor the amount we give them – bearing in mind weight, size and activeness. Pancakes contain high amounts of carbs and fats which can cause problems if consumed in large amounts. If you are unsure on portion sizes, contact your vet for advice. For those with sensitive tummies, opt for gluten free flour.
