Cool Summer Treats for Pets | Animal America Pet Resort

July has come and gone, but the summer heat is still here for another month or so! Stay cool with some tasty DIY treats that you can share with your furry friends.

Warning: Exposure to hot weather can pose a serious risk to humans and pets. Make sure that if you’re spending lots of time outdoors, you’re staying cool and safe!

Frozen Banana Bites

Bananas and peanut butter are both people foods that are safe for your pup to consume in moderation. So you can make some frozen peanut butter banana slices for a tasty treat that’s good enough for humans to eat, and also refreshing for your canine companion!

Doggy Ice Cream

You can combine just a few ingredients you have at home to make a delicious and dog-safe “ice cream” treat. This easy-to-make frozen snack is good enough for humans to eat, too, but doesn’t have all the sugar of regular ice cream!

Strawberry Banana Smoothie Treats

Strawberries and bananas are both dog-safe fruits that you and your pup can enjoy together in moderation. So you can feel good about blending them together and freezing them to make a creative treat your pup can enjoy on an extra hot day!

Get Creative With Ice Cube Trays

Your pantry and fridge may be full of some tasty and dog-safe foods! Try getting creative by using ice cube trays or ice pop molds to make fun frozen snacks using yogurt, broth or fruits. When in doubt, talk to your vet before trying out a new treat recipe.

Just Freeze Some Fruit

Frozen fruit is a sweet treat that you and your pupper can enjoy! Dog-safe fruits include blueberries, strawberries, bananas, peaches, apples and watermelon.

Just make sure that you share these treats in moderation! Too much of a sweet snack can result in gastrointestinal distress.
