The weather’s heating up and it’s hard to beat an ice cold watermelon. Did you know your pup can enjoy it, too? We have a fun recipe from Small Door Veterinary as the steamy months begin!

To create this pet-friendly treat, grab watermelon and plain yogurt on your next grocery run. At home, cut up two cups of watermelon and combine it with 1/4 cup of the yogurt in a blender. Get it nice and smooth, then pour the mixture into popsicle molds! Freeze until solid. Once frozen, pull one out and let your four-legged friend go to town.

Small Door Veterinary is a new kind of vet service based in Manhattan, NY. It’s members-only, which means pets always get access to a vet when needed and it incorporates in-person visits with telemedicine. It also offer a full range of services, from nutrition consulting to an on-site pharmacy. If you live in the area, you can sign up to join online and the company plans to expand the telemedicine component nationwide.

Your pet’s love might be unconditional but a special treat certainly doesn’t hurt! Summer just got a little sweeter for everyone.
