Discovering the Benefits of Charcoal Dog Treats with Lily

Living in the bustling city of Phoenix, Arizona, with my spirited mini schnauzer, Lily, presents unique challenges, especially when it comes to her digestion. Among our many adventures and culinary experiments, one particularly noteworthy discovery has been the benefits of charcoal dog treats. These treats have not only become a favorite of Lily's but also offer unique advantages for her health.

Why Choose Charcoal Dog Treats?

Charcoal, specifically activated charcoal, is renowned for its toxin-absorbing properties. While it's commonly used for emergency treatments in humans, its benefits extend to our canine friends as well. Here's why incorporating charcoal into dog treats can be a game-changer:

Natural Detoxification

Activated charcoal can bind to toxins and help safely pass them through a dog’s system, making it an excellent choice for occasional digestive upset.

Freshens Breath

Charcoal has natural deodorizing properties that help combat halitosis, or bad breath, in dogs—a common issue that many pet owners face.

Supports Healthy Digestion

By absorbing harmful substances in the digestive tract, charcoal treats promote a healthier stomach and intestines.

Making Charcoal Dog Treats at Home

Incorporating this wonder ingredient into homemade dog treats is simpler than you might think. Here’s a basic recipe that Lily absolutely loves:


  • 2 cups of whole wheat flour (or any other dog-safe alternative like oat flour)
  • 1/2 cup of activated charcoal powder (ensure it's food-grade)
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup of water
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil


  1. Preheat Oven: Set your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Mix Dry Ingredients: Combine the flour and charcoal powder in a mixing bowl.
  3. Add Wet Ingredients: Add the egg, water, and coconut oil to the dry mix.
  4. Form the Dough: Knead until the mixture forms a stiff dough.
  5. Shape Treats: Roll out the dough and cut into shapes with a cookie cutter.
  6. Bake: Place treats on a lined baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes.

Lily’s Taste Test

Whenever I whip up a new batch of these charcoal treats, Lily’s reaction is always an eager tail wag—she knows something tasty is coming! It's heartwarming to see her enjoy her treats and know they are helping her stay healthy. Plus, the variety keeps her engaged and excited about what's coming next.

A Staple in Our Healthy Treat Rotation

Charcoal dog treats have become a staple in our home, not just for their health benefits but also because they offer a change from the usual treats. Lily's diverse palate reminds me that variety is not just the spice of life for humans but for dogs too. Keeping her engaged with different healthy treat options is a joy in itself.

Conclusion: A Treat for Health and Happiness

For dog owners looking to add a beneficial twist to their dog's snack time, charcoal dog treats are a worthy option. They’re not just treats—they’re a tool for better health and fresh breath. If you're like me, wanting to ensure your furry friend is not only happy but healthy, give these treats a try. Your pup might just find a new favorite, and you'll feel good about giving them something that supports their wellbeing!

Happy treating!
