Homemade doggy ice cream

I can claim another culinary victory this week.

I truly believe that good nutrition is the basis of a long life.  As I say in my dog massage classes, “Senior dog care starts before your dog is a senior.”

And I have successfully created some dog ice cream for Izzy that is a nutritious treat.  It uses probiotic yogurt, fresh pureed pumpkin and cooked liver (lamb’s liver in this case).

Best of all, it looks like orange/chocolate chip ice cream!

I’ve poured this mixture into ice cube trays and Izzy can indulge in it a few times a week.

This is a treat – not a core dog food of course.  But I’m very pleased with the result.
