Fall is the season frights and delights, and why not share the festivities with our furry companions? 

Whether you’re attending a pet-friendly party this Halloween or hunkering down for the night, we’ve put together three easy recipes to help you and your pets celebrate the trick-or-treat spirit – and scare off any boredom.

1. Candy Corn Bones

A fun take on a classic Halloween candy, these frozen treats are just as delicious as they are nutritious.

Fermented or raw dairy provides a great source of probiotics, while pumpkin adds a powerful dose of fibre and antioxidants – both of which are a welcome treat for any upset stomachs after one too many Halloween indulgences!

  • Messy Mutts Silicone Dog Treat Maker
  • Fruitables Switch
  • natural peanut butter
  • raw milk or yoghurt (like Raw Fermented Goat Milk from Happy Days)

  • Step 1: add Switch to the centre of the mould, leaving space on either side
  • Step 2: fill the narrow end of the mould with your choice of dairy
  • Step 3: add peanut butter to the remaining end
  • Step 4: freeze until solid

2. Spooky Pumpkin Muffins

Who doesn’t get excited about holiday-inspired muffins, especially when they’re topped with appropriately-themed ingredients like chicken feet and hearts? Our cats and dogs are surely not the exception!

These muffins are made from healthy ingredients and can be decorated with anything you like. They also make a great personalized gift for the pet-friendly host or hostess – well, for their pets!

3. ‘Back From the Grave’ Stuffed Trachea

Perhaps the spookiest of all of our treats, these are a perfect solution to help deal with any anxiety or excess energy that your pets may have on a high-traffic night like Halloween. Not only are these made with whole, nutritious ingredients, they’ll give your dog or cat something to do while monsters lurk outside. 

We’ve filled our trachea with Green Beef Tripe, but you can easily substitute that with treats, canned food, or even your pet’s dinner. Get creative!
