On today’s edition of Pet Chef, we’ll show you how to make delicious chicken stock treats!
These treats are perfect for the summer season and can be a great tool in helping your pup to stay hydrated.
A refreshing dog treat for summer
This might be one of the quickest and easiest frozen dog treat recipes you can make. And what’s more, it’s perfect for helping your dog fight the heatwave!
Total preparation time: 10 minutes
Tasty score: 4 out of 5 (our taste tester, Elton, would’ve preferred a whole chicken!)
Wamiz tip: Once frozen, place one or two of these “brothsicles” in your dog’s water bowl to flavour it. This may encourage your dog to drink more, hence preventing dehydration.
Nutritionist’s advice: If you want to make this recipe even healthier for your dog, you can cook the chicken broth yourself. Chicken stock (or broth) you find in stores often contains lots of salt. You should purchase low-sodium chicken broth, but by cooking it yourself at home, you’re sure that what your dog is ingesting is natural and 100% healthy.
Suitable for cats: Yes
Chicken broth frozen dog treat recipe
This is a super simple 3-ingredient recipe, and the great thing is that you probably already have all the necessary ingredients at home!
- 1 reduced-salt chicken stock cube
- 450 ml of water
- A small handful of parsley
- Dissolve the chicken stock cube in water and set aside.
- Chop parsley into fine bits and mix into the chicken stock water.
- Pour the mixture into ice trays of your choice.
- Pop them in the freezer for at least 4 hours.
- Serve on its own or place into your dog’s water bowl to add flavour.
The parsley can leave your dog’s breath feeling fresh, but not all dogs are big fans of herbs. If that’s the case for your dog, you can go ahead and make the chicken brothsicles using just chicken stock and water.
If your dog isn’t a big drinker, this is the perfect treat for summer! It will encourage them to drink more if placed in a bowl. Dehydration can become very dangerous to your pet if you don’t treat it fast enough.
And anyway, your dog will thank you! These treats are super tasty!
