Last week we took Yoda to the vet. He has bleeding on his leg and a huge bruise and we were not sure what had happened. The vet’s said he had caught his leg most likely the fence in our garden. He was given some medication and sent home. The Vet also noted that our little Bichon is overweight. It’s not an easy thing when you have two dogs and they often steal each others food. I guess the best thing we can do is feed our dogs small amounts and give them healthy treats in moderation. It’s a work in progress and today I’m sharing a list of yummy and healthy homemade dog treats your dog will love.
