Ice cream is one of the tastiest foods that no one could ever resist. It’s simply made of cream, vanilla, sugar, and condensed milk with added flavors in it. This kind of snack is typically given after a meal or a snack. Have you ever wondered if your dog is safe to have ice cream?
By now, you might have seen a lot of people online letting their dogs lick some ice cream. And, it seems like each dog enjoys this kind of treats too.
Ice Cream for your Dogs
If you’re thinking of giving your dog an ice cream treat, you better stop imagining about it. Ice cream is certainly not a dog-friendly food especially the chocolate flavor. Since it is made out of milk and other dairy ingredients, your dog might encounter some problems like diarrhea, bloating, constipation, or vomiting. Although the symptoms might be minor, you still have to watch over as it as these things can eventually lead to a serious issue.
Thus, handing your dog small servings of ice cream could surely not harm them. So you could probably let them lick your snack limitedly. Just make sure to allow your dog to try the correct flavored ice cream. The ones with raisins, nuts, and any flavor that contains xylitol should be the ones on your “Not To Eat” List. For the record, vanilla ice cream could be the safest one for your dog.
Besides, other dog owners tend to create homemade ice cream for them to make sure that every ingredient is healthy and balanced. Some add real bits of bananas and other fruits that can work with your dog’s digestion. If you have more time at home, making ice cream is the most recommended one rather than buying at the stores.
