Cool Summer Treats for Pets

July has passed, but the summer heat lingers on for at least another month. It’s essential to stay cool and keep your pets safe during this time. Here are some tasty DIY treats you can make for your furry companions to help beat the heat.

A Word of Caution

Warning: Exposure to hot weather can pose a serious risk to humans and pets alike. Ensure that you and your pets stay cool and safe when spending time outdoors!

1. Frozen Banana Bites

Bananas and peanut butter are safe for both humans and dogs when consumed in moderation. Create some frozen peanut butter banana slices that not only make a delectable treat for you but also provide a refreshing snack for your canine companion.

2. Doggy Ice Cream

With just a few household ingredients, you can whip up a delicious and dog-safe “ice cream” treat. This easy-to-make frozen snack is suitable for humans as well, minus the excess sugar found in regular ice cream.

3. Strawberry Banana Smoothie Treats

Strawberries and bananas are dog-safe fruits that can be enjoyed in moderation by both you and your pup. Blend them together and freeze the mixture to create a creative and cooling treat perfect for a scorching day.

4. Get Creative With Ice Cube Trays

Your pantry and fridge likely contain various dog-safe foods that can be transformed into fun frozen snacks using ice cube trays or ice pop molds. Experiment with yogurt, broth, or fruits, but always consult your vet before trying a new treat recipe.

5. Just Freeze Some Fruit

Frozen fruit is a sweet treat that you and your four-legged friend can savor. Opt for dog-safe fruits such as blueberries, strawberries, bananas, peaches, apples, and watermelon. Remember to share these treats in moderation, as excessive consumption can lead to gastrointestinal issues.
