Beat the Heat: Watermelon Squared

Aug 2 2012 - 4:00am

I'm always seeking special ways to switch up my pup's treats with some healthy human alternatives. He already loves frozen carrot bits [1] and canned pumpkin [2] but his latest love affair is with watermelon.

Offering up a tiny bit of seedless watermelon is a safe snack [3] and I chop the fruit into squares and serve it ice cold for the steamy season. Not only is this fruit a great low-calorie treat [4], but its high water content gets fluids into the bodies of pets who turn noses up and away at the sight of an ordinary bowl.
