| Published on April 25, 2017

Looking for a fun way to incorporate more fresh fruits and vegetables into your dog’s diet? Try these frozen food toppers!

If you already feed your pooch a fresh food diet then you can easily work these healthy pumpkin-based morsels into their homemade meals. If you fill your dog’s bowl with kibble, all you have to do is place one on top of their food to melt and enjoy.

Plus, these little food toppers also make for great standalone treats to help your pup beat the summer heat!

So What’s In These Frozen Food Toppers?

  • 100% Pumpkin Puree – Pumpkin is considered a superfood for our canine cuties. It’s loaded with fiber, making it great for digestion and weight management. Plus, pumpkin also contains potassium and a moderate amount of protein. *This isn’t to be confused with pumpkin pie filling, which contains sugar and spices that aren’t good for dogs.
  • Carrot – This popular veggie is filled with Vitamin-A, which is great for your pooch’s eye health.
  • Apple – An apple a day helps keep the vet away! This super fruit packs a nice dose of fiber, vitamin A, and vitamin C. *Apple seeds are not safe for dogs to eat so make sure avoid to the core and seeds when feeding apples to your dogs.
  • Ground Chia Seeds – These little seeds may be tiny, but they’re also mighty. Chia seeds tout a variety of beneficial nutrients such as Omega-3 fatty acids, calcium, iron, and magnesium! *Don’t forget to grind or soak the chia seeds before adding them to your dog’s treats/food.
