What’s Inside

Making homemade dog and cat treats just got easier! Here’s what you can expect from Woof & Purr.

Recipes & Information You Can Trust

When I started crafting my recipes for Broomstick Pet Treats, I had several requirements in mind: the recipe must be easy, not have a lot of ingredients or exotic (a.k.a costly) components, work for any stage of a pet’s life, and not include anything I wouldn’t eat myself.

I’d achieved all that until I wanted to color the treats. The chemically created colors available on the mass market are scary, and after reading the ingredients, I refused to use them. Then, after researching how some of those ingredients are created, I stopped using them for my human foods. (Read this article from Healthline if you’d like more information.)

Further research showed me that Nature provides an amazing variety of colors through fruits, vegetables, herbs, and spices. While some of the natural colorings I used are a bit unique and possibly hard to find in certain parts of the world, I include links in the cookbook to source them online and tips to find them locally.

Homemade dog and cat treats recipes

These were the tenets of Broomstick Pet Treats, so the recipes in Woof & Purr follow the same principles.

Gluten Free Icon

Grain, Gluten & Wheat-free Flours

Non-GMO, organic, and gluten-free whole oat, brown rice, flax, coconut, and chickpea (garbanzo) are our go-to flours.

All Natural icon

Colors & Flavors Nature Intended

If we won’t eat it, can’t pronounce it, or it has more syllables than ermahgerd, we’re not feeding it to your pet.

No Scary Ingredients

No Scary or Unnecessary Stuff

We’ll never add animal by-products, digest or meal, cheap fillers like corn or soy, artificial flavors, colors, or chemical preservatives.

This will be an actual ebook for your Kindle, iPad, Galaxy tablet, etc., not just a PDF file!

What Makes This Recipe Book Unique

Woof & Purr is the first dog and cat treat cookbook designed for smartphones, tablets, and e-readers.

While we all love those gorgeously photographed cookbooks, how many of us actually use them? And if you downloaded the ebook version of that gorgeously-photographed cookbook, it wasn’t very smartphone or tablet-friendly, was it?

This is where Woof & Purr is different.

  • The layout has been designed to be viewed on your digital device.
  • Recipes have clickable footnotes of extra information.
  • Substitution options are noted whenever a recipe can be made vegan or grain-free.
  • A section is dedicated to coloring your treats using natural ingredients.
  • Included are details on toxic foods, what foods are considered ‘superfoods’ and their benefits, and why shopping for organic is so important.
  • I’ll share my baking tips & tricks so you can learn from my mistakes (so many!), and much more.

Woof & Purr is written in a conversational style – like a friend sharing her knowledge and adventures with you. I’m dumping everything I’ve learned into this recipe book, so I’m fairly confident that Woof & Purr will be the only homemade dog and cat treats cookbook you’ll ever need.
