Bone broth ice cube popsicle

I discovered something that keeps Kojo occupied for an hour. I make my own bone broth with locally sourced broth bones. Cook in crock pot for three days with a liitle apple cider vinegar and covered with water (no salt, spices or anything else). I freeze the bone broth in ice cubes and then store in gallon freezer bag. I used to melt bone broth ice cube and add to my previous dog's food.

Kojo loves to lick the outside of my cold water bottle. So decided to see if might like bone broth ice cube. It was like the ultimate popsicle to him. Kept him occupied for hour. Kept going back for licks. I only let him have half of the ice cube. One batch of bone broth makes about 60 ice cubes so I have several months worth in my freezer.

This is a great idea!!!!!! Unfortunately it doesn't work for Ricky. He has a voracious appetite - 1/3 cup of Honest Kitchen, gone in under 10 seconds - ice cube made with anything, gone in under 5 seconds. Ricky doesn't lick ice cubes, he chews them. Our Vet said to keep ice cubes away from him because it is likely to crack his tooth enamel. This does not apply to every dog, only Ricky. If Kojo licks the ice cube, then no problem.

Very true. I broke two of my own teeth chewing ice cubes. Two crowns cured me of that.

Good idea. Will have to give it a try. How does ice last an hour outside of the freezer?

In cube form with indoor temperature at 70 degrees, it lasts surprising long. The cubes are hard like water cubes rather than softer Popsicles or ice cream.

Perry is one of the few dogs I've known who just doesn't know what to do with ice cubes. He stares at them and paws them around and then looks at me... then it becomes a puddle on the floor . Maybe if they were beef flavored he might like them though (but since that would require me making beef broth, sadly he will never know!)

My Hav LOVES ice cubes, I bet he would love it. Heís usually an angel about leaving my food and drinks alone but every once in a while Iíll walk away for a moment and catch him licking a glass of ice water on the end table. Now even if he doesnít touch it, if I realize the water has been unattended, I get myself a new glass and pour the ice water in his bowl. Great training, right?

DD loves to freeze all kinds of things for our Hav, but hasnít in quite a while. Now that schoolís out, maybe weíll have a freezer stocked with frozen dog treats! I might have to make sure we have some low sodium broth on hand since I never follow through with making my own.
