Summer Treats For Your Dog

by | Jun 5, 2024 | Our Blog, Vet Hospital Henderson | 0 comments

During the summer, it’s important to keep your furry friend cool and hydrated. Here are some simple frozen treats you can make for your dog:

  1. Frozen Fruit Cubes: Fill an ice cube tray with dog-safe fruits like blueberries, strawberries, watermelon, or banana slices. Add water and freeze. These fruity ice cubes can be a refreshing and healthy snack for your pup.
  2. Peanut Butter Banana Popsicles: Mash ripe bananas and mix them with peanut butter (make sure it doesn’t contain xylitol, which is toxic to dogs). Pour the mixture into popsicle molds or ice cube trays, insert a dog-friendly stick or treat, and freeze.
  3. Yogurt Treats: Plain yogurt is usually safe for dogs and contains probiotics that are good for their digestion. You can simply pour yogurt into ice cube trays or silicone molds and freeze. You can also mix in mashed banana, unsweetened applesauce, or a bit of honey for added flavor.
  4. Chicken Broth Ice Cubes: Make low-sodium chicken broth and pour it into ice cube trays. Freeze and give them to your dog as a cooling treat. You can also add small pieces of cooked chicken or vegetables for extra flavor.
  5. Frozen Kong Toys: Fill a Kong toy with wet dog food, mashed banana, or peanut butter and freeze it. This not only provides a tasty treat but also keeps your dog entertained as they work to get the food out.
  6. Frozen Carrot Sticks: Dogs often enjoy chewing on frozen carrots, which can help clean their teeth and provide them with a crunchy snack. Wash and cut carrots into sticks, then freeze them before giving them to your dog.

Remember to always supervise your dog while they enjoy these treats, especially if they’re prone to chewing or swallowing large pieces quickly. Additionally, consult with your veterinarian to ensure that these treats are appropriate for your dog’s dietary needs and any health conditions they may have.
