Watch Puppies Hilariously Eat Ice Cream In Their Own Way

A viral TikTok video showing two types of dogs eating ice cream has left the internet in full swing this week.

In the video, which can be seen here, a hand passes an ice cream to a puppy who gently takes a few bites. Then the camera pans to offer the sugary treat to a second dog, but without wasting time, he jumps up and takes all the ice cream. The text overlay reads: ‘Two types of dogs’.

Shared by Ella Murdin, who uses the TikTok handle ellamurdin, the video received over 1.5 million views and delighted users of the popular video-sharing app.

“I can relate to the second dog,” one commenter joked. While another TikTok user wrote, “At least you managed to keep your fingers off.”

“Bro sniffed ice cream,” one user said. Another commenter said: “You didn’t have to ask twice.”

That’s not the only ice cream pup video to delight this week. On Tuesday, a viral video of a dog being foiled by a disgusted block of frozen vegetables as ice cream caught viral attention.

While it’s tempting to give your pup a sweet treat on a hot day, experts warn against sharing ice cream with your canine friend.

Like many human foods, ice cream is not a healthy snack for your dog. The American Kennel Club (AKC) cites a few reasons why it’s not a good idea to share your ice cream with your dog, including lactose intolerance, food allergies, toxic flavors and weight gain. long term.

“Ice cream is loaded with sugar,” says the AKC. “Feeding your dog sugary foods can lead to weight gain and obesity, which can lead to other health issues.

They also warn: “Even if the ice cream container says it is sugar free, you should be careful to read the label to make sure no xylitol is used, as this sweetener is extremely toxic to dogs. .”

Other ice cream ingredients can also be problematic. Most adult dogs are lactose intolerant. Dogs’ bodies are not designed to digest milk once they are weaned from their mother’s milk as puppies, therefore their bodies produce less lactose. Lactose intolerance in dogs can cause similar symptoms to humans, including loose stools, vomiting, stomach pain and gas. Similarly, many ice creams contain chocolate which is extremely toxic to dogs.

But it’s not all bad news. If you’re looking to treat your pup on a hot day, there are plenty of dog-friendly alternatives to ice cream.

The AKC recommends freezing non-fat plain yogurt. Fermented and containing less lactose, it is easier for dogs to digest.

Another treat is “nice cream,” made by blending two ripe bananas until creamy and freezing them. Packed with healthy potassium, vitamin B6 and fibre, this is a healthier option, but should be fed in moderation due to the sugar content of the fruit.

If you’re looking for something even more special, Ben & Jerry’s also has a specially created recipe in its Doggie Desserts line, made in conjunction with a veterinary nutritionist just for your pup’s enjoyment.

Newsweek has reached out to Ella Murdin for comment.
