Ice cream For Dogs

All dog owners know that feeding their pets regular ice cream can make them ill, because many dogs can't digest dairy products. Moreover, Q.2 just like in humans, eating large amounts of sugar causes dogs to become hyper and unfocused, and can also result in dental cavities, diabetes, and obesity. Now, thanks to Mauricio Montoya, some lucky dogs in Mexico City are finally able to enjoy ice cream without their owners worrying about any harmful side effects.

Mauricio says he wanted to make a dessert for dogs because Q.3 there are already treats like strips of jerky, bacon , and cookies for them on the market, but no desserts. Montoya spoke to many veterinarians before creating a recipe that was both safe and delicious. He called it Heladogs, because helado means ice cream in Spanish.

The doggy ice cream is made using organic, lactose-free, and sugar-free yogurt, honey, and fruit flavors. To make it even easier to digest, Montoya added Lactobacilli, which aids digestion in both humans and animals. While there is no verbal confirmation, Q.4 judging from the wagging tails and eager licks, the pooches appear to be loving ice cream as much as humans do. The best part is that Heladogs is perfectly safe for people as well, allowing owners to share their dog's ice cream.
