Creating snacks and treats for cats and dogs with a LickiMat® can be fast and simple with just one or two ingredients. To make treats last even, longer stick pre-loaded LickiMats in the freezer.

 

Simple one ingredient ideas are:

  • Natural yogurt.
  • Peanut butter. Use a runny peanut butter brand. Or water down a thick one with hot water. It will just help to make your mat easier to wash off. You can even blend with natural yogurt.
  • Banana. Squash a ripe banana on a LickiMat with a fork.
  • Parmesan cheese. Get one of those shaker packs and sprinkle on over the surface. Works really well on Soother™.
  • Raw egg - just crack one one. Or if you feel like cooking, scramble an egg.
  • Canned fish. Smash the fish on with a fork draining the oil or spring water on too.

  • Wet food/ raw food. For a snack or treat, use a smaller portion.
  • Coconut oil. Just brush a teaspoon of melted oil on. 
  • Baby food. Ready made baby food from the supermarket or your baby's leftover food is perfect.
  • Broth (low sodium), leftover gravy, pan juices, casserole - yum!
  • Hummous. Yep! One friend their dogs love it.
  • Coconut milk. Try freezing on to make it last longer. It would be like coconut ice cream.
  • LickiMat® Sprinkles™. If you live in the UK grab a shaker of Sprinkles wet the surface with water and sprinkle on. Made in the UK and designed as a quick and convenient way to use LickiMat.

TIP: Make up 2 or 3 LickiMats and save them in the freezer made up and ready to go. 

Wrap them in cling wrap or paper and save for later.

 

If you have a bit of time, here's a few simple recipe ideas that you can try. There's a mix of recipes made from a variety of meats, fish, dairy, fruit and vegetables suitable for cats and dogs. These recipes are perfect for most lick mats but are more suited to LickiMat®. The reason being our surface texture is designed to be deeper than other licking mats with a wider more useable food surface area.

 

For all the recipes, adjust portion size to suit your pet.  

Check with a professional that your food choices are safe for your pet. 

Ensure ingredients are xylitol free.

All pre-prepared LickiMats can be frozen and served later.
