Happy Tuesday everyone!
I've never fed my dogs from the table. But Jack and Taz DO love apples. Once in a while I'll give them a sliver of apple. But..I can't eat an apple in front of them as they will smell it and want some!! I will eat my apple and what's left I let Taz and Jack take turns biting on the core. They look so funny! I'll have to try the carrots. But they have to be soft and cooked, right?
I buy a bag of baby carrots and give Emmy those raw just as is.
Gracie and Bud totally love baby carrots!!! My vet recommended them for Bud's diet and Gracie actually loves them more. I also do the apple thing and this time of year I also cut up some watermelon for them. A poster on the Elderly Dog board recommended frozen fruit pops to me and the shelties think they're the best summertime treat ever.
Thanks for all the new ideas!!! I love the idea about baking the prescription diet- Gonna have to try to remember that one.
Here's a good frozen treat recipe for dogs....
Take a large container of vanilla yogurt - I use low-fat or non-fat and mix it with a large can of pumpkin (not the one made for pies but pure pumpkin)
The pumpkin is supposed to be good for their tummy too.
