Dog ice lollies.

Seeing as the weather is getting mighty hot, thought why not make a thread to help those who can't think of a way to keep their dogs cool, other then making sure plenty of water is down.

So thought may as well write down what people can give their dogs to eat in the form of a ice lolly.

At the minute, I've got frozen carrots down.

I suppose you could put some wet dog food into an ice lolly maker, and stick them in the freezer too...

Any other ideas?

Re: Dog ice lollies.

I suppose you could also use the blender and blend things like Apples, Carrots etc and put the blended mixture into the lolly makers.

Re: Dog ice lollies.

Sardines in the tins, could also be worth a shot.

Re: Dog ice lollies.

Great idea for a thread.

My dog loves crunching plain ice cubes - even in winter!

Re: Dog ice lollies.

I make beef stock ice cubes in a lolly mould (just without the stick but I suppose you could use one of those red/green//brown etc crumbly chews). I would make chicken as its cheaper, but I've got a chicken intollerant dog.

Re: Dog ice lollies.

For the stick you could possibly use one of the Antos dog chews... Now there's an idea, something to keep them cool and clean there teeth

Re: Dog ice lollies.

loving these idea. I have been freezing her wet food in her kong over night and letting her have that. Ice cubes go down a real treat.
