Roll to 1/2 inch and cut into desired shapes with cookie cutter. Put on cookie sheet, "paint" on remaining egg mixture, and bake 30 minutes. Let cool and store in tightly sealed container.

    Because of the Schnauzer, Dalmatian, and certain other breeds' tendency toward urinary stone formation, diets and treats low in "purine-yielding ingredients" are advised. Every attempt has been made to ensure that this recipe uses relatively low purine ingredients; however I cannot guarantee that your dog will not have a reaction to these treats, either allergic or urinary.

    It is very important to monitor the pH of your dog's urine when introducing new foods and treats to its diet. The urinary pH should not deviate from the normal pH of 7.0 if all is well. If you note any deviation, you should contact your veterinarian immediately for a standard urinalysis to see if abnormal urinary crystals are forming which can "grow up" to become obstructing stones, or to detect other urinary problems. Also keep in mind that these treats should be fed in small amounts and are not meant to replace a well-balanced diet.
