Question Frozen bagels??

Are they OK to give to Duncan? I was feeding the girls this am,and one fell and he grabbed it and ran.He gnawed on it for like an hour.It should be OK right?
Does anyone know of any other frozen treats we can give our pups?

I'm not sure entirely that a frozen bagel would be good for a Havanese due to the yeast in the bread!! I'm not sure I would want to clean it up either but it might be good for them I've just never heard of it being given to a Havanese before......

I think that there are item's we give our Hav's all the time and we never really know sometimes whether they are good for them or not because there has never been any insight into the effects of the food item such as a frozen bagel. I would have to say that they might not be too good perhaps but only for the yeast in the bread. If it's frozen and you take it away before it thaws it might be good for them. I'm just unsure of it.

I thought yeast was bad due to it expanding or something once eaten??? Anyone?

I have no idea on the bagel - I've given Nico a little bit of meat and veggies but never bread. As for frozen stuff - Nico likes ice cubes so I figured he'd like other things from the freezer. I've been stuffing his Puppy Kong with his leftover kibble when he doesn't finish his breakfast - I soften it with chicken broth and then put it in his Kong and freeze it. Somehow the abandoned kibble then becomes desirable again.

Oh Dot, that's too funny! When I saw 'frozen bagels' as a new thread, I thought some of the Cdn. Hav owners were placing an order with me! I live near Montreal and our bagels are known to be the best. ahem..... We are meeting with a few people in Ontario next month (some of whom are members of this forum) and I offered to get some bagels for them. lol

O.k...... back to YOUR bagel story. I wouldn't let Duncan eat the bagel, but if it stays frozen and all he does is gnaw at it without biting chunks out of it, I don't see a problem. If you want to give him something from the freezer w/o worrying about the fat and sugar in it (bagels are quite fattening), try keeping a rag/facecloth, that you've dampened, in there. Used to do that for my kids when they were teething and it really helps. Ice cubes on the deck outdoors are fun for some dogs, or as sugg'd, some stuffed kongs.

There are quite a few ingdts. in bagels so if Duncan reacts, you won't really know what it could be that's causing that.

I wouldn't worry about it. He probably enjoyed it and it's only a one time thing. Now, if it was one of the huge bagels and he ate the whole thing,he might have a tummy ache. Probably not much else unless he does have an allergy to wheat!

If we're in the car with the girls longer than we plan and their meal is getting late I've been known to get them a plain hamburger and split it between the two of them. I give them pieces of bun too. They've never had a problem. It's a rare treat.
