Dogs and Ice Cubes

This myth has circulated before.
The facts...

If your dog is overly stressed, dehydrated and his body temperature is too high, and therefore he starts gulping large amounts of water, with or without ice, then it is possible they could be at risk of developing bloat. Ice cubes themselves, in water or alone, are fine in moderation and not the singular cause of bloat.  It is however, always smart to monitor your dog and watch how they specifically react to anything new, such as ice cubes, for the first time.

Stayin cool


  1. Our Gussie is TERRIFIED of loose ice cubes. He doesn't notice them in his water though. We have found he loves frozen blueberries for a treat on a hot day!

  2. Good to know. Of course, it's cold now, but we'll remember that when it gets hot again.

  3. We agree good to know and well pointed out. Have a serene Sunday and enjoy some big easy today.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. Me and Stanley LOVE ice cubes!

    Your Pals,

  5. We love ice cubes too. Lady and Man only give us one or two at a time to make sure we are safe. Thanks for helping us stay cool safely!
