Is your cat cat or dog on a special diet? Are you having trouble finding an acceptable treat for them? You can use their actual food to make treats. Canned food can be cut into bite-sized pieces and cooked in the microwave for 2.5 to 3 minutes or in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Dry food can be ground into flour using a blender and then water is added until it is the consistency of dough. Make into cookie shapes and bake for approximately 30 minutes in a 350 degree oven.
