Frosty Paws – A Cool Refreshing Treat for Your Dog (Giveaway ends 3/19/13)


Purina Frosty Paws

My pets love it when I toss ice cubes into their water dish, especially on a hot and humid day. They do have a water bowl that is chilled all day long with a special ice pack, but they still love it when I toss ice cubes in their dish. My dog likes to chew on them but I stop him from doing that because I don’t want him to break his teeth.

Whenever my husband or kids enjoy a bowl of ice cream our dog stars at them, drooling. He hopes that they will drop some on the floor for him to enjoy, but giving ice cream to a dog is a “no-no”. The dairy in the ice cream can cause diarrhea in some dogs. They also don’t need the added sugars which can lead to obesity. Chocolate ice cream is especially dangerous (chocolate is toxic to dogs). If you do opt to let your dog have ice cream as a RARE treat, a lick or two a few times a year is OK. Or you can just give them their own frozen treat which is made specifically for dogs. It’s called Frosty Paws.

Frosty Paws is made by Purina. You can find it right along with your “people” ice cream. I often wonder how many people buy Frosty Paws thinking it’s for people? The cute little dog on the packaging is very friendly and inviting. I wonder if people buy it for their children thinking it’s for little kids.

Frosty Paws cup

According to the Frosty Paws website the frozen treats are fortified with protein, vitamins and minerals that dogs need with no added sugar, artificial flavors or colors. I’m not an animal expert so I cannot testify to that. All I know is that my dog LOVES Frosty Paws. He doesn’t get them all the time but I do like to let him indulge in them once in a while. Too much of any treat can cause obesity. We already have two obese cats (two out of five). I don’t want my dog to get overweight too.

Espn (pronounced Es-pin) seems to know when I’m opening up a Frosty Paws for him. He must smell them some how because he comes running in the kitchen.

Frosty Paws look like individual serving size cups of ice cream. But remember, it’s not ice cream for people – it’s a special frozen treat for dogs.

Simply pull off the lid and place it on the floor for your dog to lick at and enjoy. I would recommend putting the cup inside a heaving dish. When your dog is licking it the cup tends to slid around. I know Espn will push the cup all around the kitchen licking it. What I do is put the cup inside a heavy bowl so it stays in one place.

Espn and Frosty Paws

I wouldn’t recommend saving any left overs. Your dog’s saliva is all over it and the product might be compromised with germs and bacteria if you hold on to it for too long. But to be hones with you Espn has always eaten the entire cup, so I don’t think leftovers would be a problem. He’s a mid-size dog (around 22-25 pounds) and he can finish the cup off in about 5-10 minutes.

I wish they made Frosty Paws for cats. My cats watch Espn when he’s enjoying a Frosty Paws hoping he’ll lift his head up long enough from the cup so they can taste it too. I don’t let them because I don’t think it’s good for cats. Just dogs.

Frosty Paws would be a welcome treat for your dog, especially on a hot summer day.
