All Fur Paws Pet Health Market carries a plethora of cool treats to spoil your dog. I spoke to Carolyn Wernet and she listed the best summer treats in the store. They have frozen bones of all sizes. Beef ribs for large pups, a six-pack of marrow bones for your medium canine, and one-inch bison bones for your little one. Frozen yogurt from The Bear & The Rat are available in Pumpkin and Bacon Peanut Butter. Carolyn also shared a fun recipe her dogs go crazy for. The ingredients are Shredded Coconut Flakes by K9, and organic canned pumpkin, both of which can be purchased at All Fur Paws. In an ice cube tray, she adds a teaspoon of coconut to each cube and fills the rest with the canned pumpkin and freezes them. Her dogs literally beg at the freezer door, waiting for these treats. I’m going to try this for my senior dog, Cheyanne. She likes pumpkin and it will be gentle on her elderly stomach. All Fur Paws is located at 15220 N. Western Ave., Suite E2 in Edmond, or you may call (405) 348-6888.

Pawtopia, Your Pet’s Nutritionist is another sweet stop for this summer. Gwen Pruitt gave me inside scoop on the coolest treats in Yukon. Scoop of yogurt, that is. They also carry The Bear & The Rat yogurt in mouth-drooling flavors of Bacon Peanut Butter and Pumpkin. Frozen yogurt is the must-have treat for all the trendy dogs out there, you know. Pawtopia also carries everything on your dogs to-chew list. Choose from frozen chicken backs, turkey necks, and the popular beef marrow bone. Pawtopia is located at 335 S Mustang Rd, Ste E, Yukon, or you can reach them at (405) 265-2950.

 

Kaycee Chance, good friend and fellow writer at OKC Pets, makes her own frozen treats for her furry family. She fills a Kong toy or old marrow bone with natural peanut butter or plain yogurt and freezes them. Sometimes she will add dry food to the peanut butter and a small amount of pineapple chunks to the yogurt. Kaycee also has a cute star-shaped ice tray that she uses for these recipes. Her pets have a blast snacking on these great concoctions! Below is a cute pic of Faith, Kaycee’s senior girl, happily licking away at her frozen treat.

So, as we raise our ice cold glasses to toast the sunny season, let us not forget our four-legged friends while we celebrate all that is summer.
