Perfect Smoothies for Your Dog

Our four-legged friends love to lap up smoothies, just like us humans! Why not make a little extra next time to share? Smoothies can provide tons of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients for your dog while keeping them cool. Here are a few simple dog-friendly smoothies that will keep both you and your pup healthy and satisfied.

First…a Few Tips

  1. In most cases, it’s best to strain the smoothie before giving it to your dog.
  2. Stick to small amounts for your pet as too much smoothie can lead to an upset stomach.
  3. Freeze smoothie mix into ice cubes for an extra special summertime treat.
  4. Not all smoothie ingredients are safe for dogs. Avoid avocados, grapes, raisins, nuts, raw green potatoes, tea, coffee, and chocolate.
