Everyone likes a cup of hot chocolate on a frigid winter day. However, chocolate contains theobromine, making it extremely toxic to dogs. Carob, on the other hand, is a cocoa alternative that is safe for pups to enjoy.
We’ve teamed up with Kevyn Matthews, The Dog Chef, to bring you this exclusive recipe for a dog-friendly hot chocolate. It’s so sweet and delicious, humans can enjoy it as well. (Just add marshmallows.)
Remember, if your dog has a history of dietary sensitivity, you may want to check with your veterinarian before deviating from his regular diet.
