As mentioned above, our toppings include Plato’s Superfood Toppers, blueberries, and peanut butter, but you can serve these pancakes with a variety of toppings. Here are some additional dog-friendly options:

How much you give your pup depends on the amount of food you normally portion for that day, as well as the size of your dog. For large dogs, we recommend one per day. For smaller dogs, we recommend a portion of one pancake per day. However, you know your dog and how many treats are right for them.
Leftover pancakes should be kept in an air-tight container or a sealable plastic bag. You can refrigerate them or freeze them for longer storage.
