You may be wondering why we have written a blog about frozen yoghurt for dogs. Well, it is National Frozen Yoghurt Day Saturday 6th February so it’s actually very relevant and just as us humans like to enjoy desserts like frozen yoghurt, there are some frozen yoghurts around that are suitable for our canine friends to enjoy as well.
Check it is safe for your furry friend
As ever it is very important to ensure that you are only feeding your furry friends foods that are suitable for them. There are many human foods that are poisonous to dogs including chocolate, raisins and some nuts, all of which could be ingredients of your frozen yoghurt that you like to eat at home. Any foods that you give to your dog need to be checked and it’s always best to buy food that has been specifically created for dogs. If your dog has any additional dietary or health requirements they need to be taken into consideration as well. Some dogs are lactose intolerant, which means they don’t have the necessary digestive enzymes to be able to break down milk in the yoghurt, which makes them very poorly.
How is frozen yoghurt for dogs different?
Human yoghurts often contain a lot of sugar, which is not very healthy for dogs. Some yoghurts replace those sugars with artificial sweetners or xylitol, which is fine for us humans looking to cut down on sugar but xylitol is deadly for dogs so please don’t give your yoghurt to your furbabies.
Where can I treat my dog to some frozen yoghurt?
Frozen yoghurt for dogs can be created at home following a recipe. A quick search online will likely provide you with many recipes to choose from. However, if you would prefer to buy some ready made frozen yoghurt that you know is safe for your dog then you can order from places like Rays Ice Cream who are based in Swindon, Wiltshire. We have tasted their human ice cream and it is truly delicious so I am very sure their frozen yoghurt for dogs “Doggy Yoggy” will be very tasty too.
Doggy Yoggy is sold in 500ml tubs, comes in one flavour and is made from peanut butter, yoghurt and strawberries. To ensure Doggy Yoggy is safe for dogs it contains significantly less lactose, fat and sugar than Rays regular ice cream. Other important things to note are that Rays Doggy Yoggy is gluten free and contains no xylitol.
Rays have been closed temporarily due to lockdown but they are restarting their home delivery service again from 16th February, which is fabulous news so you can treat your furry friend at the same time as treating yourself to some delicious ice cream.
