CHEESY POPSICLES

What We Need:

* Grated carrot

* Grated cheese or cottage cheese 

* A few finger-sized cut out carrot piece 

How to Prepare it:

* Bind the two and make a ball out of them. 

* Insert one finger-sized cut out carrot to each popsicle.

* Put them in the fridge to cool for about 10 minutes and voila!! 

Points to Note:

* Make sure you use more carrot in proportion as compared to the cheese as we want to feed them cheese in moderation. 

* The size can be from small, medium to one big popsicle. 

* Feed in moderation, just as a mini snack on special occasions.

* Keep in mind your dog’s age, breed, allergies before offering new treats.

PUMPKIN AND CHICKEN POPSICLES

This is best given in an ice cube form

What you need: 

* Pureed pumpkin (1 cup) 

* Chicken broth with a few shreds of chicken. (2 cups) 

* Clear out an ice cube tray 

How to Prepare it:

* Mix the pumpkin puree and the chicken broth in a bowl 

* Stir well

* Add the portion to the ice tray 

* Freeze it 

Once it’s ready, pamper them with a flavoured ice cube occasionally or as a quick snack to keep them busy.

Points to Note:

 * Give the frozen popsicles in moderation. Twice a week in the monsoon is more than enough. 

* Give them frequently on hot sunny days.

* Keep in mind your dog’s age, breed, allergies before offering new treats.  

* Do not feed them frozen ice cubes everyday.
