Recipe for DIY Frozen peanut butter and jam treats for dogs
Many of the problems that your pet may experience are the direct result of the food they are eating. At Hopewell Animal Hospital we regularly see pets with respiratory problems, GI disturbances (diarrhea, constipation, inflammatory bowel), anxiety, lack of stamina, inflammatory or skin conditions, chronic conditions or pets who do not easily medicate or do “bodywork” (acupuncture or massage). For those pets, we have found they respond remarkably well to TCVM (Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine) food therapy. By utilizing our knowledge of food ingredients and their impact on health, Dr. Buchanan works closely with you create a personalized diet specific to the needs of your individual pet that will encourage their maximum health.
With those healing principles in mind, for #recipetuesday once a month we present to you a recipe to provide your dog or cat some easy, delicious food and treats!


Nothing beats the summer heat like a tasty frozen treat! This summer, give your dog a safe, refreshing, healthy and tasty treat – Frozen PB&J Treats! Peanut butter and jam is a classic flavor combination that’s safe for both humans and dogs to enjoy when you use a natural peanut butter (please be careful not to use peanut butter that contains xylitol as this is dangerous for dogs), and it’s quick and easy to prepare!


  • Strawberries (1 cup fresh or frozen)
  • Water (¼ cup)
  • natural xylitol-free peanut butter
  • Ice Cube tray

How to prepare treats:

  1. Wash strawberries thoroughly and cut off tops & stems
  2. Add strawberries and water to a blender and blend until smooth
  3. Pour the liquid into your ice cube trays, about ¾ full each
  4. Add peanut butter into each slot (roughly a teaspoon each)
  5. Place tray into the freezer until frozen
  6. Enjoy!
