It's summer and I was looking for a way to keep Wylie cool. For some reason I can't explain he doesn't care at all for regular ice cubes. I came up this this idea, tried it and we both love it! It's fast, simple and easy to clean up and he loves the taste. I use this recipe now whenever I have dogs visiting for the day and often give dogs them on training breaks. Wylie loves them so much he runs over if he hears the freezer open. Ingredients: - Baby food: I use organic, carrot flavored. Flavor doesn't matter, just pick something your dog loves and as long as it isn't toxic to dogs, you should be fine. - Water - (Optional) Very small slices of fruits or vegetables. That's it! It's easy and cheap. Aside from the food ingredients all you need is an ice cube tray. I sometimes use a special ice pop maker that I have (it has a pre-frozen liquid inside so the ice pops only take about 10 minutes to fully freeze) so the flavored ice cubes are ready when we need them. Ice cube trays work fine though. Instructions: - Mix some baby food with water. Quantities don't matter, you just want to dilute the baby food. For a stronger flavor add less water. I prefer to add a lot of water so the baby food is very diluted and I use less per ice cube. - Add the optional fruit or vegetable slices. Some dogs love to lick away at the ice to find a yummy treat inside. I use tiny carrot, apple and blueberry slices which dogs absolutely love! - Mix everything around and pour the mixture into the ice cube tray. Put in the freezer and well, wait. - When the ice cubes are frozen, you can feed them to your dog. Pop one out, put it in a bowl and serve. It's best to serve these outside because some dogs will pick them up and carry them all over the house. I put some cold water in the bowl with the ice cubes so when they melt the dogs have some yummy, cold water to drink. Carefully and slowly introduce these to your dog. Start with just one a day for awhile, then if your dog shows no problems feed more. I wouldn't recommend more that two a day, as these aren't the most healthy things in the world. Enjoy! I hope this helps your dog stay cool this summer!
