Singapore enjoys year long summer and us, humans, aren’t exactly pleased with the sweltering heat let alone our dogs. Dogs have coats of fur that make it harder for them to cool down in our tropical climate. Apart from ensuring a consistent supply of water at home, an occasional icy treat will be a delight to beat the heat. We’ve compiled 6 easy dog ice cream recipes that do not require any special machine to make them. All you need is a blender, ice tray and the fridge. The quantity of each ingredient is adjustable based on your preference. Do take note of your dog’s dietary preference or allergies before trying any recipe.
