5 Homemade Doggy Dental Treat Recipes

Doggy dental health is an important responsibility for a pet parent. Depending on your lifestyle and how much you’ve got on your plate, taking time to prioritize your dog’s teeth isn’t always at the top of the list. But the fact is, dental disease in dogs can start as early as three years old? It’s also one of the most common diseases that lead to heart / liver disease and diabetes, if left neglected for long.

Being pet parents ourselves, we understand that brushing our dog’s teeth daily may not be realistic, especially if they aren’t a fan of it. And buying dental chews or treats from the store can also be costly and overwhelming if you're not sure what ingredients are safe or if it’s not in your budget. We put together 5 easy dental treat recipes that you can make at home to help get your pup’s dental health on track, while also keeping them healthy.

1. Carrot Toothbrush

An easy and minimal ingredient recipe from Phyllis & Hillary on TikTok.

  • Ingredients: Carrots, Dog-safe bone broth + water
  • Directions in a nutshell: Peel and cut carrots to desired size, keeping them long. Soak carrots in bone broth + water in a container for a few hours. Freeze and serve.

Why we love this: This is a crunchy and fun alternative to brushing teeth as it helps with plaque buildup and can be prepped for the week ahead if you struggle with finding time to brush your pups teeth daily.

2. Frozen Breath Mints

A no bake recipe combining Down Redbud Drive and Better Pup on TikTok, it takes no more than 5 minutes to prep.

  • Ingredients: Coconut oil, Chopped mint, with optional Parsley, Turmeric and Raw honey
  • Directions in a nutshell: Mix all ingredients together and add to a desired mold. Freeze and serve.

Why we love this: These ingredients are great but when combined all together it makes for an anti-inflammatory and immune boosting treat that also happens to help your dog’s breath. These are easy to make and require no baking at all.

3. Apple Froyo

Putting a little spin on the breath mint recipe, The Produce Moms' dental treat recipe features apples, which are helpful in teeth cleaning and yogurt, which is great for a healthy gut.

  • Ingredients: Green apple, Mint, Parsley, Coconut oil, Plain greek yogurt
  • Directions in a nutshell: Blend all ingredients together in a food processor and add to a desired mold. Freeze and serve.

Why we love this: This is another yummy, easy to make recipe that is perfect for those in a time crunch. This recipe also calls for greek yogurt which has nutrients like protein, calcium, and probiotics to keep your dog healthy and strong.

4. Homemade Green Biscuits

A healthy and homemade recipe from Health Starts in the Kitchen on making your own dental biscuits.

  • Ingredients: Mint, Parsley, Egg, Activated charcoal, Diatomaceous earth, Brewers yeast, Grass fed gelatin, Coconut oil, Ghee, Bone broth, Liquid chlorophyll (alternative: freshly juiced wheatgrass), Garbanzo bean flour
  • Directions in a nutshell: Combine mint, parsley, charcoal, diatomaceous earth, brewers yeast, gelatin and egg in a food processor until smooth. Add in coconut oil, ghee, bone broth and chlorophyll. Add flour until the mixture becomes a dough. Roll the dough out to ¼ inch thickness, cut into desired shapes and place onto a baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes.

Why we love this: This recipe makes a clean and natural ingredient alternative to a popular dental chew on the market. These baked treats help with daily oral health and you can customize treat size / ingredients to pup’s liking or what you have on hand.

5. Pumpkin Dental Biscuits

These pumpkin apple doggy mints from Damn Delicious also double as a healthy treat.

  • Ingredients: Pumpkin puree, Eggs, Whole wheat flour, Apple, Mint, Parsley
  • Directions in a nutshell: Beat pumpkin puree and eggs with an electric mixer until well combined. Add flour until the mixture becomes a dough. Work apple, mint, and parsley into the dough. Roll the dough out to ¼ inch thickness, cut into desired shapes and place onto a baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

Why we love this: This recipe contains pumpkin which is an amazing addition to your dog’s food palette. Pumpkin has so many vitamins and minerals such as iron and potassium. It’s also great for digestion.
