In the summer heat, it is important that your dog drinks enough and refreshes himself. With these delicious treats, he can enjoy the summer months to the fullest.
In today’s issue of Pet Chef, we want to show you how you can conjure up delicious and refreshing treats for your dog’s nose from chicken broth and parsley.
These treats are perfect for hot days and will help keep your dog from becoming dehydrated.
Refreshing Dog Treats for the Summer
This is probably the quickest and easiest frozen dog treat recipe there is. And by the way, they are the perfect little helpers to keep your pooch happy on hot days.
Preparation time: 10 minutes
As soon as the treats are frozen, you can put one or two in your dog’s water bowl to cool the drinking water and give it a delicious taste. This could encourage your dog to drink more on hot days.
Nutritional advice: If you want to make this recipe even healthier, you can of course cook the chicken broth yourself. Ready-made chicken broth often contains a lot of salt. In any case, you should buy low-sodium chicken broth. By making the stock yourself, you can be sure that all the ingredients are healthy and 100% natural.
Suitable for cats: Yes
Recipe for Frozen Chicken Broth Treats
Here comes the super easy 3-ingredient recipe, all of which you probably have at home.
- 1 cube of low-sodium chicken stock;
- 450 ml of water;
- A small handful of parsley.
- Dissolve the stock cube in water and set it aside.
- Finely chop the parsley and add it to the stock water.
- Pour the mixture into an ice cube tray of your choice.
- Freeze for at least 4 hours.
- Feed the treats like this or add them to your dog’s drinking water.
The parsley provides fresh breath, but not all dogs are big fans of these herbs. In this case, you can simply leave out the parsley.
If your dog drinks too little, these are the perfect summer treats for your four-legged friend. You will encourage your pooch to drink more, which is very important, especially on hot days. Dehydration can have serious consequences.
