Berry Coconut Dog Cancer Treat
Updated: September 29th, 2021
If you’re looking for a berry-licious dog treat, these are easy and delicious!
Here’s a lovely, cool, delicious dog treat for summer holidays and long lazy days.
Red, White, Blue and Yummy Gummies 🐾💕
Makes about 24 squares, will need a ice cube tray or freezer mold. Suggested silicone freezer mold has 24 1.5×1.5x..75 inch squares.
1/4 cup blueberries, blackberries, or black raspberries
1/4 cup cranberries, strawberries, or red raspberries
Puree about 1/4 cup blueberries, blackberries, or black raspberries.
Separately, puree about 1/4 cup cranberries, red raspberries, or strawberries.
Spoon a little blue berry puree into one side of each square. Spoon a little red berry puree into the other side. Leave a little space in the middle of the mold for the “white” coconut oil.
Spoon coconut oil into the center of the mold until mold is full.
Place mold in freezer. Let set for an hour or so, and give as treats.
Keep in mind, coconut oil can cause diarrhea so don’t give too much or too many. My guys will get one per day 💙🌼 and smaller dogs might only need one quarter or one half.

Can a dog with pancreatitis eat these?
Hi Sandra, they are pretty high in fat, due to the coconut oil. I wouldn’t chance it, personally, in case they trigger an attack. Here’s a recent podcast for you to listen to about diets for dogs with pancreatitis: https://dogcanceranswers.com/pancreatitis-dog-diet-for-cancer-dr-nancy-reese-qa/
