Salmon patties are a delicious alternative to processed treats.

Dogs can get a great deal of nutritional benefit from seafood. Homemade salmon patties make a great alternative to commercial dog treats and provide plenty of proteins, vitamins and healthy fatty acids in the process.

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.

Open a can of salmon and empty the contents into a mixing bowl. Use a fork to flake the salmon apart and remove any bones.

Mix panko, eggs, shredded carrots and parsley into the salmon, stirring until the mixture is completely combined and it binds together easily.

Use an ice cream or cookie scoop to form 1- to 2-inch balls of the salmon mixture. Use your hands to lightly flatten each ball into a round patty and place it onto a greased cookie sheet.

Bake the salmon patties for approximately 12 minutes, then turn each patty over and bake for an additional 12 minutes. For softer patties, bake for 10 minutes on each side.

Remove the patties to a wire rack to cool completely before serving or storing. You can refrigerate the patties for up to one week or freeze them for up to two months.
