Looking for a cool treat when the temperature is soaring? You may want to check out the “ice cream” for dogs at Healthy Pets. It is like more like a Popsicle than ice cream. Our dog, Roxie, enjoyed the Roast Beef flavored treat.
Ma and Paws Bakery for Dogs also has an excellent selection of treats for special occasions. This peanut butter based “cake” with yogurt topping was a big hit.
