This sounds like a good recipe thats grain free. I havent personally tried it but I thik I might

Grain Free Dog Biscuit Recipes –
Cheesy sweet potato biscuits


1 cup sweet potato flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
cup cooked mashed sweet potatoes (can use regular potatoes)
1/3 cup milk
3 tablespoons vegetable oil (or olive oil)
cup grated cheese

Combine sweet potato flour, and baking powder. Combine remaining ingredients in separate bowl, pour bowls together and stir until dry ingredients are moist. Knead dough on sweet potato flour covered surface. Roll out dough, cut into your favorite shapes. Place on lightly greased cookie sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes. For crunchier treats leave biscuits in the oven while it cools.

Sound good Goudasmom, thanks. Any ideas on where to get the sweet potato flour?? I have never heard of it. My husband likes to try the dog treats when I make them. It's funny.

Another one

Peanut Butter Dog Treat Recipe

Ingredients:

3 cups Garbanzo & Fava Bean flour*

cup of organic peanut butter

1 cup water

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 F.
Combine all your ingredients into a food processor and pulse for 20 seconds, scrape down the sides and pulse again until everything is mixed.
Then, using a spoon, just spoon out the dough onto cookie sheets.
These are like drop cookies. You can make them larger or smaller as you like.
If you have a big dog, make them bigger, maybe even using two spoonfuls per dog treat.
If you have a small dog, use less dough to make smaller dog treats—you're in control of the size
Bake for 20 minutes.
You can store these at room temperature for 2-3 weeks or in the refrigerator for up to 6 weeks. You can also make extra and freeze them!





*If you're not familiar with garbanzo and fava bean flour—it's simply ground beans—garbanzo beans and fava beans.



It's gluten free (Bob's Red Mill makes this—carried at Whole Foods, Wegman's and other groceries. You can also order it online)



It works great in this peanut butter treat recipe for dogs who are allergic to wheat or grain.

Found both flours on Amazon. Might order them both after Thanksgiving so I can start making some treats.

I'm looking at a food dehydrator as a Christmas gift (already told hubby that is what I want..so hopefully he listens & if not, I'll buy it after Christmas).
BB sells treats too. Check them out. And Demodex isn't serious as long as you keep it under control. Our rescues get it all the time. Once he has it he can break out again during stressful periods. But not usually after 2 years of age. It is usually gotten in the first year.

I'm in the same boat as you albeit it a larger, more worn boat...my baby girl Lucy has had demodectic mange three different times(including now) and oral ivermectin has worked the best for her(she's still currently taking it), Lucy is also on an immune boosting supplement which has seemed to help a lot. You should definitely look into some kind of supplements that have an immune boosting quality to it, it makes a big difference with the recovery. As for the grain free food thing, Lucy has had both grain free food and food with grain and for her it didn't really seem to make any difference. Good luck to you and your baby!

There's a store by us that sells lots of holistic dog food - the owner is a dog nutritionist - she sells grain free Buddy Biscuits. I get both the training treats and the bigger cookies.
