In 2006, Jeff Walker decided to give dogs exactly what they want – an ice cream of their very own. Frostbite, a new line of power ice cream for dogs, offers a holistic way to treat a wide variety of ailments from anxiety to dry skin. For our more privileged clientele, the Frostbite Headquarters in Boston will custom-blend homeopathic toppings for individual pets. These unique blends of all-natural herbs, when mixed in with Frostbite Ice Cream, offer a supplement to daily nutrition and an aid to traditional veterinary medicine.
Walker, a historian of Chinese herbal sciences, has created a team consisting of a pharmacologist, a culinary historian, and a veterinarian to help formulate the world’s first healthy homeopathic ice cream for dogs.“We are seeing tremendous increases in chronic ill health in our pets that was rare back in the early 1960's. Most of these illnesses revolve around breakdown in our pets' immune systems, and include chronic skin/ear allergies, digestive upset, thyroid/adrenal/pancreatic disorders, seizures, gum/ teeth problems, degenerative arthritis, kidney/liver failure, and cancer across all ages and breeds. Homeopathy offers a viable alternative in truly curing pets and making their bodies healthier,” said Michael Dym, D.V.M.
Four of the available healing mix-ins include: a senior blend designed to relieve arthritis, aid digestion, and support cognitive function in older dogs; an Echinacea and goldenseal blend to strengthen the developing immune system of puppies and promote healing and help fight off infection in adult dogs; a tranquility blend to calm dogs with general and situational anxiety and reduce physical tension without the side effects seen in other medications; and a tinkle tonic to soothe the urinary tract and reduce inflammation without irritating the kidneys. Other mixes, such as a detoxifying blend and a digestion aid, are in the works and will be launched later this summer.
