DIY Eat - Frozen Tuna Treats

DIY Eat - Frozen Tuna Treats

4

 

We can’t forget about our little friends this summer. They enjoy the sunshine just as much as we do, but unfortunately they can get heated pretty quickly. Why not cool them down with some easy to make frozen treats? Your dog will love you a million times more once he gets his paws on this yummy delicacy. (Your cat friends will love them too.)  

WHAT YOU WILL NEED

• An ice cube tray
• Can of water-packed tuna (alternately, you can use canned salmon)
• Approximately ½ c water
• A mixing bowl or Magic Bullet
• A Ziploc bag

1. Start by mashing up the tuna in your bowl or stuffing it into your food mixer. Don’t drain the tuna water as it helps with the freezing. Add about half a cup of water to the mix.

 



2. Then mix up that tuna! I used my Magic Bullet because, really, it’s my go-to kitchen appliance and takes 10 seconds. Yum... doesn’t that just look delicious?

 

3. Fill your Ziploc bag with the mix and cut a small hole in one end. This helps save you from making a huge mess while filling up the ice cube trays. Fill your trays and place in the freezer for a couple hours. Let dogs lick the bowl.

4. When the treats are nice and frozen, you can pop them out and let cats have a taste! I recommend letting them chew on these on a tile floor or a plate, because I’m pretty sure you don’t want tuna bits all over your house. You can store these in a plastic bag in your freezer for up to six months, so if you make a bunch you’ll have some on hand for hot days!

I have a small dog who only gets a cup of kibble per day/in two servings. Wish you'd list calorie counts for your recipes for all your doggie recipes.

Just count the calories on the can of tuna you are using... it's not that difficult.

Also, I'm sure you give your dog treats, so just use a frozen tuna cube instead. It's not going to make a big difference - in fact, it's probably even healthier for your dog.

Great idea! Going to pin this one on our Pinterest board (agcpetservices).

Thanks for posting! =)

I was told that animals (some cats) that weigh under 10 pounds shouldn't have frozen treats as it can cause hypothermia.
