Help your pet celebrate the summer safely.
Keep Them Cool
Provide Some Pupsicles
Publix wants to help you keep your furbabies as comfortable as possible, so we created some frozen treats for them to enjoy. Just label them very carefully!
Purr-fect Puff Pops for Cats:
- 1 hard-boiled egg
- 1/2 cup of honey
- 1 long sliced carrot
- 6-oz can of tuna in water
Mash the hard-boiled egg and put it into a bowl. Add honey, carrot, and tuna. Mix together and roll into marble-sized balls. Place the puffs in a sealed container and keep refrigerated until they turn into chilled pops. Then serve.
Peanut Butter Frozen Treats for Dogs:
- 4 cups rice milk or vanilla yogurt
- 1 medium mashed banana
- 2 tablespoon honey
- 2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter, without salt
Mix ingredients in a blender, then pour into paper cups or ice cube trays. Do not use ice pop sticks of any kind! Freeze for four hours or more. When ready to serve, tear off the paper cup or pop out of tray and place treats in a bowl.
Note: Some peanut butters and yogurt contain xylitol, an ingredient that is toxic to dogs. Always check the label before using in your recipe.
If your pet has a pre-existing medical condition, consult your veterinarian before adding a new food to its diet. Also, these recipes are for intermittent or supplemental feeding only and are not replacements for a complete or balanced diet.
