Berry-licious Frozen Kefir Treats

When sharing Murphys raw bowls over on Instagram, something I am regularly asked is 'What are those paws?' or 'How do you make them?' 

The short answer is: They're nothing more than Kefir and berries and they're super simple to make! 

For those who have never heard of Kefir or it's benefits for dogs; it's basically a healthy fermented milk drink. It can be made from cow, sheep or goats milk and the health benefits for both human and hound are huge and include: 

  • Antibiotic and anti-fungal properties.
  • Aids prevention of allergies.
  • Promotes healthy skin.
  • Strengthens the digestive system.
  • Helps with upset stomach.
  • Can counteract bad breath.
  • Helps with joint disease.
  • Potentially reduces the increase of cancerous cells.
How much Kefir should I give my dog? 

I give Murphy around 3-4 paws a week, but as a rough guide: small dogs 1 teaspoon - 1 tablespoon daily, Medium dogs 1-2 tablespoons daily, Large dogs 2-3 tablespoons daily.
