Now, she learned a lot when Zimmie first went on a prescription diet - mostly from trial and error. She did try putting small scoops of his canned food on a cookie sheet and baking it. That lead to about 3 straight days of open windows, the exhaust fan going, and the oven door being left open. All part of "how stinky goodness got its name", apparently.
That gave rise to the idea of using a food dehydrator outside on the deck, and that was a smashing success. My canned food isn't sliceable like Zim's was, so unfortunately for me, that option is out. (Plus the dehydrator was really stinky, so Mom got rid of it.). Anyway ... here's what Mom came up with for me!
|"Hey! What are you making!?!"|
"Yeah! Smells nice and stinky!"
Mom popped open a can of my prescription food and spread it into my personal Frozen Stinky Goodness tray!

Apparently, even though she had washed her hands before starting, she didn't want to use her fingers to spread the canned food around. Probably concerned about cleanliness. To make it nice and smooth, she used a little hand-held spatula:

After that, she put the tray into a well-sealed zip-top baggie and stuck it in the freezer. She said we'd have to wait a few hours! That was really hard. What to do with all that time on our paws? We recommend a bit of this:

Before we knew it, Mom had popped my new Frozen Canned Treats out of the tray and into a zip-top baggie. Don't they look wonderful?!!?
|Like a batch of chocolates!|
I couldn't wait to try one!
I LOVE these! I even like them better than the other Frozen Stinky Goodness Treats - they have a little crunch to them, but aren't quite as hard. Another culinary masterpiece by our mom!!!!
Being on a prescription diet isn't always easy - but when I have treats like this to look forward to and enjoy, it's a lot easier!!
