Yup, they are prone to bloat. She's had a preventative gastropexy many years ago and has never really had any problems in terms of bloat or digestion (we've been really lucky with her in every aspect, she's 11 years old!). I think it was just one of those things that don't agree with her (she's had regular ice cream and ice with no problems).

I got these a while ago, and I havent gotten any in a long time becuse I havent gotten around to it, but my dog loves these. The only down side about it is that my hand gets cold while I hold it for him while he licks it. But other than that, they are awesome.

I give these to Molly and Lucy and they haven't had any problems. Didn't realize there were feeding instructions though, I just let them eat how much they want lol. I put it in a bowl and let Lucy go at it, since she's so small she just licks at it and takes a few bites and she's done. Then I let Molly finish it off. First time I gave one to her she licked at it until it was gone, now she puts the whole thing in her mouth and chews it up.

I got some for Ein once (we are struggling to keep his weight close to normal, so he does not get high calorie treats very often) and we had no problems with it.

I never noticed the feeding instructions, either. I just opened it up, put it in a bowl, and laughed at him while he pushed the bowl all over the kitchen trying to lick up (and then chew up) the ice cream.

I'm not sure if you consider a corgi "small", but he adores ice and has no problems with it. He just chomps and chomps (I think he chews ice into smaller bits more than he does anything else). I suppose it's possible to choke on it, but I would guess that the ice would melt too quickly from the warmth of their mouth and throat. Isn't a dog's body temperature 101 or something like that? No guarantees, I guess, but I personally wouldn't worry about it.

oh, and we don't have an ice maker built into our fridge, so Ein eats the size of cubes that come out of an ice cube tray that you fill up and put in the freezer.

Exclamation Homemade frosty paws!

I know I'm really late on this thread, but I have some good recipes for "homemade frosty paws". The Frosty Paws they sell at the grocery store are really not good for dogs...they have some nasty ingredients in them and a lot of chemicals/other stuff not so great for dogs to eat. I personally stay away from them! Actually I did once buy them a very long time ago for a previous dog, (before I knew what the ingredients were) and she would not touch the stuff. I tried giving them to friends' dogs and NONE of the dogs would eat it!

You can make your own dog dessert like Frosty Paws at home for MUCH cheaper and they are actually healthy and good for your dogs! Most of the recipes use yogurt. I use plain organic yogurt so there is no salt or extra stuff added. You can use the recipes below or you can do what I do and make up your own. I usually mash up whatever fruit I have handy and mix it in with the yogurt, sometimes I add a little oatmeal or honey for texture/sweetness, then I freeze it in cups. The dogs LOVE these especially on hot days.

Here are some recipes. You can also use these as Kong fillings, just plug the small hole, put the mixture inside and freeze it upright.

BJ'S Peanutty Pupcicles

1 ripe banana
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/4 cup chopped peanuts

Mash banana's and peanut butter, stir in wheat germ. Chill 1 hour. Place in container, store in refrigerator or freezer.

Frozen Peanut Butter Yogurt Treats

32 ounces vanilla yogurt
1 cup peanut butter

Put the peanut butter in a microwave safe dish and microwave until melted. Mix the yogurt and the melted peanut butter in a bowl. Pour mixture into cupcake papers and freeze.

Fruity Yogurt Treats

2 kiwi fruit -- mashed
or jar baby food fruit
8 ounces strawberry yogurt -- or other

Mix together, freeze in ice cube tray. serve.

Yogurt Pups

16 ounces plain nonfat yogurt
3/4 cup water
1 tablespoon sodium-free chicken bouillon granules

Dissolve bouillon in water. Combine water and yogurt in blender and blend thoroughly, Pour into small containers for freezing, cover and freeze.

Pup Pops

2 chicken or beef boullion cubes (sodium free)
3 cups water
Dissolve boullion in water. Pour into small styrofoam cups or ice cube tray. Freeze. Serve frozen.

Frosty Paws #1

one part instant oatmeal
two parts water
instant chicken or beef bouillon powder (sodium free)
(optional) large glob of peanut butter

Mix and let sit for a few minutes until the oatmeal absorbs most of the liquid. It isn't even necessary to heat it. Spoon into small containers and freeze. Some other suggestions to add: yogurt, pureed liver, garlic, pureed vegetables.

Frosty Paws #2

1 banana
4 oz. plain or fruit yogurt
2 oz. water

Process in blender or food processor till smooth. Pour into old frosty paws cups, ramekins or something similar. *Freeze and Serve.This recipe fills about 3 FP cups.*

Homemade Frosty Paws #3

1 quart vanilla yogurt
1 medium banana
2 T peanut butter (I use natural style)
2 T honey

Puree the banana in a food processor (a blender would probably work fine). Add the peanut butter and honey

and continue processing until smooth. Add yogurt and process just long enough to blend all ingredients together. Place 18 small paper cups (bathroom size) in a baking pan (one 9x13 or two 8x8 work well). Fill paper cups to about 2/3's full. An ice cream scoop or a measuring cup makes the job easier. Freeze until solid. I

transfer the frozen treats to zip-lock bags for storing in the freezer.

Frozen Jerky Pops

Bouillon (sodium free)
Jerky Strips

Fill a muffin tin with cool water and add a pinch of bouillon. Place a Jerky Stick inside and freeze.


:1 fresh banana
2 tbs wheat germ
1 tbs plain yogurt (can use your pet's favorite flavor as well)

In a bowl, mash up banana. Then, add wheat germ and yogurt. Mash all ingredients together and use spoon to add to a muffin tin or cups. Freeze for 4 hours.

Pugs Pops

-1 Quart fruit juice
-1 banana, mashed
-1/2 cup yogurt

Mix ingredients together thoroughly, then freeze. This can be eaten by people too.

My dogs love Frosty Paws and luckily have never had a problem. Although they also eat kitty snickers (cat poo) so I don't think they have very sensitive stomachs.
