Want to give your furry friend a mental “leg up?” Try tasty treats like these Salmon Brain-Boosters. The omega-3 in salmon helps power cognition (and tastes yummy to boot!), plus it can help keep coats healthy and even combat cancer.

Here’s a recipe you can try at home:

Salmon Brain-Boosters
Yield: 36 treats
Calories per treat: 10

Ingredients

1 can (7-oz.) salmon
1/3 cup oat flour*
1 tbsp. parsley, minced

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F and grease a small baking sheet. In a medium-sized bowl, blend ingredients until fully incorporated, then scoop by the spoonful and roll into ½-inch balls. Space balls evenly on baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes. Let cool before serving.

*If necessary, pulse dry oats in a food processor to substitute for oat flour.
