Dobbies Garden World in Lasswade has introduced the UK’s first Ice Cream treat for dogs.
The Billy & Margot product was developed by nutritionist and dog lover Marie Sawle. The doggy ice-cream is being offered in two flavours: strawberry and apple and apple, banana and carrot, and is made from carefully balanced ingredients.
The ice cream contains no milk, which can be harmful to dogs. Sugars come from the fructose naturally found in the fruit and vegetable purees that flavour the ice cream while Aloe Vera and flax oil have been added to boost the healthy qualities of the product.
Marie named the product after her pets black Labrador, Billy and Margot.
