Frequently Asked Questions

What if I do not have silicon molds?

If you do not have silicon molds, you can make these treats in ice cube trays. Or, use small paper cups and fill them no more than an inch high. Peel off the paper once they are frozen solid, and then transfer them to a freezer-safe container.

IS Watermelon SAFE FOR DOGS TO CONSUME?

Not only is watermelon safe for dogs, it has a host of vitamins, antioxidants, and amino acids that are beneficial to your dog’s health. It is also high in fiber, low in calories, fat-free, cholesterol-free, and sodium free. And since watermelon is made of 92 percent water, it is a good source of hydration, especially on a hot day.

When serving dogs watermelon, make sure you remove the rind and seeds which are difficult to digest and cause blockages.

IS YOGURT SAFE FOR DOGS TO CONSUME?

Yogurt is high in calcium and protein and acts as a probiotic, making it good for your dog’s digestive system. However, too much yogurt may cause your dog to become sick because dogs aren’t used to large amounts of lactose. Plain Greek yogurt is the healthiest option for your furry friend. 

Is peanut butter safe for dogs to consume?

Peanut butter is a good source of protein and healthy fats, vitamin B, and vitamin E that adds nutrition to these dog treats. Make sure your peanut butter does not have any xylitol, a sweetener found in some brands, because it is toxic to dogs.
