RECIPE: Watermelon Slush for Dogs

Happy June! Summer is now really upon us (and we’re in the mid-90s already) so we wanted to share this fun and easy recipe from our latest book, The Healthy Hound Cookbook (Adams Media). Watermelons are a great seasonal buy in stores right now, and low-calorie watermelon is a tasty way to cool off in the dog days of summer. Packed with potassium and magnesium plus Vitamins A and C, watermelon also helps prevent dehydration because it is filled with fluid.

Many dogs also love plain watermelon slices. Be sure your dog doesn’t eat the seeds or rind but otherwise feel free to share your summer slice with him!
