Gelatin is great for joint support
Our dogs absolutely love these treats, and the best part about them is that they're healthy, low calorie and high in protein. Totally Wags Collagen for Dogs is highly bioavailable and easily digestible. These gelatin gummies are a healthy alternative to other, more calorie dense treats. And as an added benefit, collagen is great for supporting joint health.

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies
Here are all the tools we gathered to make our Totally Wags gelatin treats
Step 2: Measure
Using the liquid measuring cup, pour ½ cup of cold water into your saucepan. Measure out a heaping ¼ cup of Totally Wags Collagen using the dry measuring cup. Sprinkle the collagen evenly over the water in the saucepan. Let it soak in for about 20 seconds.
Step 3: Heat
Turn the heat on low. Heat and stir until the Totally Wags dissolves, about a minute. Let it cool for a minute, then use the dropper to fill the molds. Or if you are using a sheet pan, pour the liquid into the sheet pan. You will need to work somewhat quickly or the liquid will start to gel in the saucepan.
*Troubleshooting note: If you have bubbles or foam, you can skim them off or suck them back out with the dropper. They won’t affect the flavor, but if you don’t like the look of them - remove them. When using the dropper, the best way to avoid bubbles is to plunge the dropper deep into the saucepan. Our dogs do not mind the occasional bubble so we pretty much just leave them!
Step 4: Cool
Once the molds (or sheet pan) are full, pop them in the fridge.
Smaller molds, like the tiny gummy bears, take about 10 minutes to set in the fridge. The cookie sheet will take longer, depending on the density. If you use an 8 x 8 pan - maybe plan on an hour. If you use a 9 x 13 maybe 30 minutes. You will be able to tell if the gummies have set.
Step 5: pop them out!
Now carefully pop the gummy treats out of the molds. If you use a cookie sheet, cut them into small squares. Throw them in a zip lock bag and store in the fridge. They should stay good for a week to 10 days.
Your dog will LOVE them. Try not to give them too many in one day because too much gelatin can cause an upset stomach! Enjoy!
