Hi,
I found this treat on the LP site that FurPaw referred me to. It is not particularly for dogs that have LP. It just seems like a fun refreshing treat for any dog. It has not been tested yet by me.
1 can Chicken broth (fat and salt free is best)
1 can of waterFill six plastic cups (5 and 1/2 oz size) half full with broth. Fill to the top with water and freeze.
You can replace water with Gatorade or Pedialyte for an extra boost. I think this is a treat that I will be serving outside if I ever whip up a batch. Has anyone tried it before? FurPaw has it ever touched Oppie's tongue?
The Chicken Pops are named after Kansas a Lab that had LP. Kansas belonged to the owner of the web site that was so very informational about LP.
Yum Yum, eat em up!!

I just freeze low-sodium broth in ice cube trays. To be honest I don't see the point to adding electrolytes to dog treats. Anyway, the dogs love their chickensicles.

No, but I expect he'd like it. Now that I'm preparing Chile's food, I've been boiling the chicken scraps (bones, skin, gristle) for a few hours and keeping the broth as a food additive - I'll bet Oppie would like it if some of his share came in a frozen cube!

It will be a great day when our schools get all the money they need and the Army has to hold a bake sale to buy a tank.

To reply, unleash the dog.
Melinda,
I think the ice cube idea is better than the plastic cup. I am sure 5 1/2 ounces would melt before they could down it.
I think the Pedialyte or Gatorade was meant for a dog in distress. Perhaps even for a dog that wasn't eating?

Furpaw,
Your chicken broth boiled down from chicken remnants must be quite an enhancement to their food.
I have one hog dog, two normal eaters, and one picky one. My friend coaxes him and begs him to eat. I leave his bowl down for an hour and then try it again the next day. He is in good health and is not underweight. He just likes to be the center of attention and stare down any other dog that may approach his bowl. I call it spoiled. I bet he wouldn't pass up a meal with home made chicken broth.

Those are used for electrolyte replacement. Dogs sweat a little but not a lot, and while the question comes up a lot in performance dog circles (always from someone who's framing it in a human context) I've never seen it answered in the affirmative.
Anyway, while I suppose anything's possible it's hard for me to imagine a dog rejecting meat broth in favor of Gatorade.

Melinda,
I had never considered a healthy active dog needing electrolytes (Pedialyte or Gatorade). I had no knowledge of it even being discussed in competition circles. Thanks for the heads up.
I have rehabbed a number of infants animals often dehydrated when they arrive. I have used those products in rehabbing wild and domestic babies.
Now that I think about it, it has been awhile since I have had any babies around here.
I recall rehabbing some tiny Wood Ducks. They were so funny. The classes I attended suggesting using a feather duster for them to hide under (simulating their mother). I had to make do with a rainbow colored acrylic duster. They would run and hide under it just like it was their mother. They survived and I released them in a sanctuary.

That just cracks me up!
Poor twisted duckies...

Karla,
The baby Wood Ducks that I was rehabbing cracked me up too. They were so funny. You are not suppose to handle infants that you rehab and are going to return to the wild so as much as I wanted to hug then and play with them I did not. I even used a glove that covered my arm when I fed them so they would not know the food was coming from a human. I did my best not to imprint them.
I always thought of them as my Hippie Wood Ducks because they would run to that rainbow colored acrylic duster just like it was their Mama.
