Scoop's For Dogs, dog-friendly ice-cream
Scoop's For Dogs by Marshfield Farm is an ice-cream that dogs can enjoy

Treat your dog to Scoop’s ice cream

So, you may have noticed that summer has finally arrived. And many of us are enjoying our staycations with days at the beach or walks in the countryside, followed by a well-deserved ice cream. But what about our most important family member? Yes, that’s right, we mean your dog (who no doubt pulls their very best puppy face as you enjoy your treat).

Some people are happy to give their dog a lick of their ice cream. However, ice cream isn’t necessarily good for your dog and can cause stomach problems. So, it’s good to know that Scoop’s For Dogs is now available from many supermarkets.

Scoop’s ice cream for dogs

Scoop’s is made by Marshfield Farm, who just so happen to have their own ice cream parlour in Wiltshire. But for those of us who can’t pop along in person, it’s great to be able to buy a tub from the local shops. Of course, you may be asking what’s the point of buying ice cream for dogs? Well, regular ice cream can cause digestive problems for your pooch. And we all know what that means!

Scoop’s ice cream is made with reduced fat, sugar and lactose, so it’s better for them than human ice cream. Plus, it has glucosamine for joint care, vitamin C for the immune system and omega-3 for a glossy coat. It also contains curcumin, a natural anti-inflammatory. It’s made on the farm with clotted cream and vanilla. And judging by the furry faces on Scoop’s Instagram page, it doesn’t taste bad either!

You may also be wondering why it’s called Scoop’s ice cream. Well, Scoop is the name of the farm’s family dog. And there’s no need to ask whether Scoop loves ice cream!

If you want to find out more about the ice cream or where you can buy it, head on over to their website. If your dog has tried a tub of Scoop’s already, do let us know their verdict. I’m sure we’ll be getting Poppy a tub to try very soon, so we’ll let you know what she thinks too!
