How to make fab fish cake bites for Felix and Fido!

Wednesday 20th May 2020

We’re still baking!  How about you? After posting our last recipe for doggy cupcakes, you asked for something suitable for extra sensitive dogs AND cats too.

These treats are nutritious, tasty, and gluten-free.  The white fish is a gentle protein source for dogs and cats with delicate digestions.

What you will need

  • - Generous helping of white fish (e.g. haddock, cod or coley)
  • - Gluten free flour (or potato flour; you can also use mashed potato for softer treats)
  • - One large egg – omit this if egg allergy is known or suspected
  • - Dollop of olive oil
  • - A little dill or parsley (remember never include chives as your herbs as they are in the onion family – onions are poisonous to dogs)
  • - One small garlic clove (garlic, although also an allium is fine for dogs in small quantities – it’s even believed to be a good flea deterrent!)

What you need to do 

  1. Preheat the oven (to about 180 degrees C).
  2. Prepare the fish and carefully remove all bones.
  3. Pop the fish, egg, oil, herbs and garlic in the blender and mix well. When the mixture is reasonably smooth, tip it out into a mixing bowl and add the flour. Mix again until all the flour is folded in.
  4. Transfer to a baking tray lined with grease proof paper.
  5. Cook for about 20-25 minutes (the time will vary depending on individual ovens and quantities).
  6. Leave the treats to cool (away from the dogs).
  7. Cut into bite size pieces (depending on your pets bite!  E.g. tiny bites for cats, larger for medium to large dogs!).


This recipe can be also stored in the fridge for a couple of days. Larger batches can be frozen and defrosted for use as needed.

As with all treats, use in moderation. Don’t forget to reduce your pet’s main diet allowance to allow for the extra calories treats provide.  

For pets who require fat restriction, the oil in both recipes can be substituted with fat-free cottage cheese (ensure this does not contain artificial sweeteners such as xylitol which are toxic to dogs and cats!) and an extra egg white.

Happy baking!
