One of the best ways to say “I love you” to those closest to you is with a gift from the heart. This Valentine’s Day, try treating your furry friend with such a gift that they can enjoy. You may think that buying a high-priced pet treat may be the best way to show your pet you care, but a great gift doesn’t have to be expensive. There are affordable, fun, and creative ways that you can make an awesome gift at home that your pet will absolutely love. Check out this list of eight DIY pet treats and find new ways to make this Valentine’s Day the best one yet for you and your fur baby.
8. Pet-Friendly Shish Kebabs
Humans, dogs, and cats have something in common: a love for meat. That’s why making these pet-friendly shish kebabs are a perfect start to a heartwarming Valentine’s Day. Save that good cut of steak for the humans, and opt for slice-and-serve meat rolls for pets. Just slice it up, add some chopped apples and carrots, and slip them onto a skewer. Word of warning: take the goods off the skewer before serving. No one wants your furry friend to suffer injury while eating.
7. Lettuce Wraps
These pet-friendly lettuce wraps are so good that you’ll be tempted to take a bite yourself. Chop up some slice-and-serve meat roll, add a handful of kibble, peas, and shredded cucumber or carrot, and put it all in a lettuce leaf. Wrap them up to try and keep everything contained. Your little fur baby will be getting servings of both protein and veggies, and this snack will certainly go quickly!
