What You’ll Need To Make The Ice Cream

In the peanut butter flavored ice cream for example you will find:

You can keep the ice cream in the freezer with lid secured for up to 2 months. The unmixed powder shelf life is 9 months.
The ice cream is made to be safe for healthy dogs, but in terms of whether any type of food is definitely safe for your dog, the best person to answer that is your vet.
Allergies and health conditions specific to one dog can impact how they react to new foods.
How Do I Make and Prepare The Ice Cream?
Always follow the directions on the ice cream packaging that you get, but the following are general directions for preparing the ice cream:
- Add 2/3 of a cup of very hot tap water to the ice cream pint.
- Mix contents of the pint for 1-2 minutes until all of the powder is dissolved
- Place the lid back on the pint container and put it in the freezer for at least 5 hours.
- Take the pint out the freezer and let ice cream sit for 15-20 minutes before serving
Serving Suggestions: 1 scoop for small dogs, 1-2 scoops for medium dogs, up to half the pint for large dogs.
