Make your dog a Halloween Doggie Smoothie!

"Sliver'd in the moon's eclipse...nose of Turk, and Tartar's lips;"

There's just nothing better than a nice healthy sip after a long hike, a day playing in the leaves, or out trick or treating with the neighbor pups!

So why not make your dog a Halloween Doggie Smoothie! It's organic, healthy and super yummy.

"Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting...lizard's leg, and owlet's wing."

Here's our recipe:Gather all your ingredients...

1 cup kefir - low-fat, plain, organic is best
A few oz. organic, unseasoned chicken stock
A nice slice of cooked liver
1/4 Lightly steamed organic (large) carrot
A dollop of canned pumpkin (make sure it's pure pumpkin, K?)
A splash of apple juice
A few slices of banana
Tsp of flax seed
Small spinach leaf.

"Double, double toil and burn, and caldron bubble!"

How to make it:

Throw all your 'creepy' ingredients into a blender (except the sprinkles and spinach leaf, add those after) and mix well. Serve immediately in a stainless steel dish, or chill for an hour in the fridge for a cooler treat. Sprinkle with crushed flax seed and a small spinach leaf.

Refrigerate any small amount of leftovers and use within 24 hours.

Remember, you don't have to use all the ingredients, the basics are the Kefir, fruits, veggies or meats. Don't forget to check what foods are safe for us pups if you decide to vary the recipe.

And as with all things - moderation is key, so start your pup out with smaller portions to begin with (about 4 oz.). Hope they enjoy their doggie smoothie!
