Can dogs eat ketchup?
Yes! Ketchup is a great treat for dogs and can be a great source of protein. The ketchup in this recipe is made from scratch, without added sugars, flavors, or preservatives. Plus, it's easy to make, and the recipe can be varied in different ways, depending on the preferences of your dog.
Why dogs love ketchup
The first time we fed ketchup to our dog, she ate it straight from the spoon with no complaints. She also has no interest in any other foods, like canned meats, chicken, and even tuna.
You can buy ketchup from the store, but the flavors can be overwhelming, and you usually have to buy it in a jar or a box, and not all brands are made the same.
The main reason we love using ketchup is that it's very low in fat and it adds a nice texture and flavor to a variety of different foods that dogs just love. Ketchup is naturally sweet, which makes it a very healthy treat and an easy way to feed your dog a high-quality food.
We like to feed ketchup as a treat, which makes it an easy and healthy way to add some flavor to a variety of dog foods. The only downside is that sometimes dogs will try to eat it with their fingers, and that can cause problems with choking and/or a sticky mess to clean up!
This recipe for homemade ketchup is a simple, easy recipe that is packed with protein. Our dogs are a mixed breed, and we use a variety of different types of dog food, but this recipe works great for a number of different foods.
You can make a batch of ketchup and freeze it for use throughout the week. You can also customize this recipe, adding or subtracting various ingredients, based on your dog's preferences.
Start by heating your pan and melting the butter over low heat.
When the butter is melted, add the onions and saute until softened, about 10 minutes.
Add the garlic, mushrooms, and thyme.
Cook until the mushrooms are tender and the onions have started to brown, about 10 to 12 minutes.
Reduce the heat to low, and add the ketchup to the pan.
Mix well, and cook for about five more minutes.
Remove from heat, and set aside.
In a blender, blend the remaining ingredients until smooth.
Mix well with the cooked ketchup.
Serve and enjoy!

I’ve been trying to cut back on ketchup for my dogs for some time, and when I found your recipe I just needed to try it. However, I was disappointed that the ketchup didn’t have the same consistency as the store bought kind. Do you think there might be anything I could do to fix this? I’ve tried cooking this on high heat, but it just didn’t thicken the ketchup as much as I’d like.
You might not be able to make ketchup as thick as the store bought kind, but you can still use it for treats. It can be thickened by adding a few teaspoons of tapioca starch. Tapioca starch is a thickening agent, and it works great in a lot of different recipes for people, including ketchup!
The one thing you need to make sure of, when adding tapioca starch, is that you add it slowly. You don’t want to add the tapioca starch right away, because it can become lumpy if it’s added too quickly.
I like using a spoon for adding the tapioca starch to the ketchup, as it lets you control how much you add. I usually start by adding 1 teaspoon, and add another teaspoon every five minutes until the ketchup has thickened up. It may take a few tries to get it right, but you should be able to get it right the first time.
I have to agree with all these comments, the store bought stuff just tastes better and is a lot cheaper too. I have been making my own ketchup for about 3 months now with all kinds of ketchup’s and I have been making my own dog treats for 2. I have to say your homemade treats taste better than anything that I have ever bought, if I could give 10 stars out of 5 for your dog treats I would!
I use your recipe for homemade ketchup all the time, and it is great. I have also been using it to make homemade dog treats. It is a great, cheap and healthy treat!
Thanks for the comment, and I agree that homemade ketchup is a great treat. I just wanted to add that if you find ketchup in a jar or box, you can always open it, mix it into your homemade ketchup, and then re-seal it in the jar. This works great for storing homemade treats.
