The Honest Kitchen Ice PupsIt’s August. It’s HOT.
How are your dogs taking it?
Our black-backed, hairy Newf is often belly-up in front of the AC and non-stop panting. Our hound is a sun worshiper in need of constant hydration. We’ve just discovered a fun treat from The Honest Kitchen that cools our hot dogs off from the inside out … and we want to share it with you.

Ice Pups: They Make Your Dog Cool!

These puppies are super easy to make:

  • Pop the lid with a spoon handle.
  • Mix two heaping tablespoons of powder in a cup of warm water.
  • Stir, pour and , in the summertime, freeze.

This was supposed to be a demonstration video but, as you’ll soon see, it turned comedic in a hurry. I couldn’t feed the critters fast enough.

Ice Trays - Animal Rescue SiteSide note: I used cardboard bowls in a pinch, BUT, I just bought these paw-shaped ice cube trays from the Animal Rescue Site for our next batch of Ice Pups. Not only are they adorable for making bite-sized snacks, this purchase funds 14 bowls of food to rescues!

Ice Pups: They’re HOT!

Ice Pups can be served three different ways – for dogs AND for cats.

  • as a healthy sorbet – which we’re trying today
  • as a chilled, refreshing beverage
  • or, in the winter, as a warm broth after a rousing romp in the snow

Ice Pups: They’re Healthy!

Every food served from The Honest Kitchen keeps dogs and cats in good health. They holistically help pets in poor health too. Ice Pups’ tasty, natural ‘gravy’ increases palatability when transitioning your pet to a new diet. It bolsters drive for pets with a lowered appetite (especially during post-operative recovery). And, it aids those pets with kidney problems by increasing fluid intake. Check out the customer testimonials on their website comments section.

Disclosure: 
I am a proud participant in The Honest Kitchen’s ally program. I joined because, after dangerous recalls and increased deception about what constitutes “healthy” food in the pet food industry, I finally found a human grade, socially and environmentally conscious dog and cat food company that I can trust my pets’ life with. While I do receive free food, samples and a discount through the program, I tell everybody I know about The Honest Kitchen because – bottom line – I want you to feel as good about what you feed your pets as I do.
