Ice cream for dogs?

Found this at the store today in the ice cream section. Of course we had to try it, and Ceylon seems to like it

gosh..I remember frosty paws from years and years ago when I had my dog Lucy! This was in the early 80's..Didn't know they still made it!) She loved it! My kids were little and they got such a kick out of watching her eat it out of the little cup. I see it has gone up in price since then.

We have a place nearby that makes home made ice cream. Their version is "Cow Paws" (the place is the Black Cow). It's low fat, low sugar frozen yogurt watered down and frozen so it's tasty but a lot harder than regular icecream. When we go there of ice cream, Kodi gets a cup and LOVES it. He works on it until we get home, then the little cup is usually good for at least a couple more servings.

The other night, Dave had given him the left-overs in the kitchen, and both of us kind of forgot about it. A little while later, he came trotting into the family room, carrying his cup and took it right over to Daddy. You could tell he was saying, "All done, Dad, can we go get some more?"

Cute, Kodi! I had no clue there were such things. Will have to check that out. Although I am not sure it would be a great idea for Augie. He is feeling heavier to me. He is eating more since we brought Finn home. He wasn't a huge eater, and still isn't, but is eating more than he used to - it is like if he sees Finn doing something, he has to do it to for the attention - just like little kids when the older one will revert to baby behavior because they see the adults making over the baby.

Holy moly, the Ben and Jerry's is only $4.39 there? It's over $7 here!

Piper loves it! I used to get it in the cups but if you see the tub on the right, those are little bite size nuggets. I like that for a small treat she can eat right away, those cups take a loooong time to eat. (and I also don't want to see poor Augie deprived of such a delicious treat )

What a great idea! We'll have to look for some. So far, all they've gotten is a lick on the stick of my dreamsicle when I'm finished!

How many calories are in this stuff! I do admit, we let the boys lick our ice cream bowl clean. We leave very little in the bowls.

It's mostly whey and such, so not exactly like human icecream!

Found this on one site:

Calories 128
Fat 7g
Sodium 196 mg
Sugar 9g


Guaranteed Analysis

Crude Protein not less than 8.0%
Crude Fat not less than 6.5%
Crude Fiber not more than 1.0%
Moisture not more than 68.0%

Ingredients

Water, dried whey, soy flour, animal fat (preserved with BHA and BHT) dry whey product, dried whey protein concentrate, vegetable fat, soy lecithin, microcrystalline cellulose, mono and diglycerides, carboxmethyl-cellulose, polysorbate 80, polysorbate 60, calcium carbonate, choline chloride, ferrous sulfate, zinc sulfate, manganese sulfate, magnesium oxide, silicon dioxide, vitamin a supplement, vitamin e supplement, niacin supplement, copper sulfate, calcium pantothenate, riboflavin supplement, potassium iodine, thiamine monoitrate, vitamin D3 supplement, vitamin B12 supplement, folic acid.

...I guess 128 calories is a lot for a little Hav huh, and it does have a bit more sugar and salt than I would like. You can always split up the big cups, or give them the smaller bite-size ones like somebody mentioned above. It certainly wouldn't be something I would give every day, or maybe not at all to a dog that needs to be on a diet, but Cey is actually very skinny so I don't mind giving him a little bit of a higher-calorie treat (I gave him half of a cup yesterday) on occasion.
