Cheesy Carrot Apple Treats

Cheese is another food that most dogs crave, but it is best in small doses. This recipe combines cheese with whole grains, veggies and fruit for a more wholesome snack. Some adult dogs can be lactose intolerant so dairy may upset their GI system, and more rarely dogs can be allergic to dairy. But most pets will gobble these up with delight.
