Note – Always ensure your pet is not allergic before introducing any new food into their diet. If unsure, call your vet.
Rinse strawberries and blueberries. Set aside.
Cut stems off of strawberries
Mix 1/2 cup water and all 8 strawberries in the blender. Blend until liquefied. Repeat with Blueberries. (Mixing 1/4 cup Blueberries with 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup of water).
Pour berry/water mixture into ice cube trays using a cake decorating tip to help prevent any leaks. View my DIY Frozen Luau Dog Treats to see this technique. Repeat with the blueberry mixture.
Freeze for 2-4 hours or overnight.
Once they are frozen, pop them out and serve 1-2 cubes to your Irresistible Pet! You can put the remaining cubes into a plastic container and store them in the freezer. Now when your dog is hot you will have a quick, tasty, frozen treat on hand to cool them off!
