I thought this sounded like a neat recipe to try for our dog. So I read through the list of ingredients. I noticed that this recipe has cheese in it (a dairy product). I then read the reviews on this recipe and found that other people have concerns about the ingredients and their safety for dogs. To add to the reviews and the concerns about the ingredients, our veterinarian told us that dogs truely are lactose intolerant. She told us NOT to give our dog any dairy products as it can cause pancreatitis in dogs. This isn't advise that I read online, but advise that came from a veterinarian. I haven't tried this recipe, but if/when I do I'll leave out the cheese. I hope this information is helpful.
