This recipe is suggested for dogs who are just recovering from illness or injury. Dogs who are just recovering usually have low or no appetites at all.

This light and very nutritious recipe will ensure that your dog gets a boosted dose of B-complex vitamins to help speed up recovery. This Maple Appetizer is also a good alternative snack for dogs that are allergic to food items with wheat, since millet is not related to wheat and does not contain compounds like gluten.
