Vetinfo.com has a great article about the numerous benefits of supplementing your dog’s diet with liver. But it can also be harmful if your dog eats too much of it. Dogs that eat too much liver may be prone to a condition called hypervitaminosis A, or an overdose of vitamin A.

Ingredients:

• 2.2 pounds of liver (this can be lamb liver, pig liver, or ox liver)
• 4 eggs
• 1 3/4 cups of flour
• Splash of Milk

Method:

  1. Start with cracking two of the eggs into a mixing bowl then follow them with half the liver and a splash of milk. Once all of the ingredients have been added to the bowl blend them until it looks like a smoothie.
  2. Next you are going to add .875 cups of flour to the mixture. In other words estimate half of the flour and ump it into the mixing bowl. Instead of using the blender use a fork to mix the flour into the mixture. You are going to want to get a thick and stick goo. If it isn’t thick enough that is the sign that you need to add more flour.
  3. Empty the mixture onto a tray covered in aluminum foil. Then repeat the first two steps of the process to produce the second half of the mixture. Once the second half of the liver cake mixture is complete add it to the tray too. You are going to want it to look level and even like a pan of brownies.
  4. Bake at 180c (or 350F) degrees for around 1 to 1.5 hours .
  5. The cake should come out looking similar to brownies with a lighter coloring.
  6. Cut the cake into individual treats for your dog.

Hint:

To easily crumble treats into small pieces for training, use a pizza cutter shortly after removing from the oven. It is much easier to do this when it is still warm as opposed to when it solidifies.
