Frozen Coconut Oil and Blueberries

Not only is this a sweet treat that will help cool down your pup, but it may also have some health benefits too. It is believed to be beneficial for pets with inflammatory bowel disease as well as cognitive dysfunction.  However, please be aware that feeding coconut oil on a regular basis will increase the overall fat content in your dog’s diet. It can also worsen pancreatitis.

Frozen Bone Broth treats

What are the benefits of bone broth for your pup?  It supports their gut health and digestion!  Bone broth contains gelatin which helps to restore and protect their gut lining.  This helps to prevent leaky gut and improve digestion.  Bone broth can be a great addition to your pups healthy diet and lifestyle, however make sure to choose one specifically created for dogs.

P.S.  This is just your friendly reminder that treats are just that….treats.  They are meant to be an occasional way to reward your fur-babes.  Every pet is different, so please make sure to consult with your vet if you have any dietary concerns.
