All dogs like ice cream and it's like drugs for them.
My dog like watermelon ice cream much! :)

I don't know how great ice cream is for dogs, but they do actually make "doggie ice cream" - that is what I give my dogs & they love it! There are a couple of different kinds, both very similar - Frosty Paws and Dogsters. Mine love the peanut butter flavored ones :D

I know I shouldn't but I give my dogs a little vanilla ice cream. In fact I've been at some ice cream stands that will make up a little doggie cup.

I also give them frosty paws which they love. My dogs are spoiled!

I do! They always love ice cream much as I do. :D

Sometimes I let him lick the bowl, lol

We also buy them the doggy brand ice creams. The people ice cream makes some of them sick so I avoid it. Nothing wrong with spoiling them with the real stuff sometimes if their tummy's can handle it. :)

Funny thing is, my dogs prefer carrots to anything as a treat, except for the bulldog, he loves pumpkin! :D He actually tries to steal the carved pumpkins and eat them every year at Halloween so we have to watch him! lol

Happy Monday!

I have Great Danes and yes they get vanilla ice cream. I asked my vet about it and he just smiled and said that an ice cream cone every once in a while doesn't hurt. Just for me to make sure there isn't any choc;ate involved.

I only give ice cream on occasion, and even then, I give frosty paws. Lower fat content.

No. But if I will give them it will be vanilla ice cream too. No flavored ones especially chocolate of course. Anyway my dogs always do puppy eyes to asks for food so I will surely be giving them some when they see me eat ice cream.

I don't have any pets, but I really want a miniature Pomeranian soooo bad.
I'd probably share a bite lol:)

Ice cream is fine, as long as its vanilla. Make sure you do not feed it chocolate flavoured ice cream, as those are bad for its health.

Ice cream of ANY kind is bad for your dog, the reason being sugar is toxic to their liver. Chocolate of course is harmful to the liver too. Despite these facts we find it very hard not to give our doggies a taste when we eat ice cream. When I make homemade frozen yogurt I give them each a tiny bit on a saucer of their own, but when we eat real ice cream we only let them lick our bowls when we're done.

My dog loves ice cream, and just about everything humans eat

You're a good mommy, dogs love ice cream (put a treat on top & they'll go nuts)

I don't give my dog any ice cream. However my son feeds the dog what he's eating about 85% of the time. So my dog gets ice cream when my son feeds it to him on the sly.

it really made me laugh!

02-04-2012, 06:08 PM
I have given my dogs icecream in the past with no problems.

02-04-2012, 06:13 PM
I can't say I have ever tried...Although they are making doggie Ice Cream! Schwan's Carries it. :)

My girl loves ice cream. She gets her Frosty Paws and then waits to lick the bowl....so spoiled!

03-18-2012, 05:44 PM
I give my dog "frosty paws" it's ice cream made for dogs in the freezer section in the grocery store.

I give my dog frosty paws too, my last dog used to just lie down and lick till it was gone and he wouldn't move, but my new dog has no idea how to eat the frosty paw,
it is always quite the production
