Lick Mat & Pate

Pate with Peanut Butter and Banana

Let's start with a classic combination. our 100% meat pate range is fantastic for using on any lick mat, paired with peanut butter and banana will be a hit among any dog enriching treat. Simply cut the end off of the pate and rub it like a crayon on the area of the mat you'd like your pate, then spread a thin layer of natural, unsweetened dog friendly peanut butter on the mat and then top it off with some mashed banana. This lick mat recipe not only tastes great but also provides your dog with a healthy dose of protein and potassium. If your dog can't eat peanut butter you can always use natural yoghurt.


Yogurt and Berries

For a refreshing treat, try a combination of yogurt and berries. Use a plain, natural yogurt as the base and then add some mashed berries on top. You can use any type of berries your dog likes, such as strawberries, blueberries, or raspberries. This lick mat idea is loaded with antioxidants and probiotics, which are great for your dog's health. Alternatively you can fill any type of hooves too, see our blog about what natural goodies you can fill hooves with.

Pumpkin and Apple

Another excellent lick mat combination is pumpkin and apple. Both of these ingredients are safe for dogs to eat and offer numerous health benefits. Pumpkin is rich in fibre and can help improve your dog's digestive health, while apples provide a good source of vitamins A and C. Simply puree these ingredients together and apply it to the lick mat. You can even top it with some yummy bite sized treats with pumpkin.


Chicken Broth and Carrots

For a savoury option, try a chicken broth and carrot lick mat. Boil some carrots until they're soft, then mash them up and mix them with some low-sodium chicken broth. This recipe is a great way to sneak in some vegetables into your dog's diet, and the chicken broth makes it extra tasty.

If you don't want to use this in a lick mat you can always fill the mixture in an enrichment tray or add some gelatine to make some yummy jellies for your dog.

Lastly, a lick mat idea that is both nutritious and delicious is sweet potato and green peas. Sweet potatoes are packed with vitamins and fibre, and green peas are a good source of protein. Mash these ingredients together and spread them on the lick mat for a treat your dog is sure to love.
