Kidney-Friendly Pupsicles for Your Dog July 13 2020
Every day thousands of dogs are diagnosed with some form of kidney disease. With a diagnosis like this, your dog has to have a change in their daily diet, so we created this healthy, kidney-friendly, easy to make recipe for some fun "Pupsicles" for your dog to enjoy! Of course, please double check with your vet if you are unsure of any of these ingredients for your specific dog. And yes, these are yummy enough for all dogs to enjoy on a hot day so feel free to share with your other doggie friends!
4 Baby Carrots
1/2 Apple cut into chunks
1/2 cup Blueberries
4.5 oz Plain Yogurt (full fat is best for dogs with kidney issues)
Add all the ingredients to a blender. Add a little fresh water at a time and blend until consistency is smoothie like. Place your silicone molds onto a cookie sheet for easy transportation from the counter to freezer. Take your smoothie mixture and pour into silicone molds leaving a little space at the top. Once your molds are complete, then pop them in the freezer and freeze until your dog is ready to enjoy. Once ready to give, just pop the pupsicle out of the mold!
Note: There are tons of options for silicone molds out there. We used silicone cupcake liners (~3in diameter) and filled 5 of them. You can find something similar here. If you want smaller, 1 to 1 1/2in sized treats, check out these cute bone and paw print shaped ones.
