Bottomline 

Consider your dog’s allergies to certain items while you prepare these homemade treats. If you’re experimenting with different flavors and ingredients, have your dog eat the treat in little amounts and see if they react to it. If there are none, you may give him the entire meal.

Always consult your veterinarian before giving your dog anything besides dog food, commercial treats, and prescription medications.
