Watermelon is rich in fiber and many different vitamins. Watermelon is also high in water content (92% of water), which helps your pet to stay hydrated. Plain, low or non-fat yogurt provides probiotic benefits and serves as an excellent source of calcium.
While watermelon offers many health benefits, they are not safe for pets if eaten in large quantities as they can cause intestinal blockages. Watermelons that are advertised as seedless still contain small white seeds, these should be removed as well. While making this recipe, try to remove as many of the seeds as possible before adding to the blender. If you notice any full-size seeds or large seed chunks when pouring the mixture into the ice cube tray, try to remove them.
