Here's the best part. Ben & Jerry's says all the ingredients in its Doggie Desserts are ones found in its current ice cream recipes. But instead of using dairy for the dog treats, theirs are tsunflower butter based because dogs are lactose intolerant and can only tolerate small amounts of dairy. according to the American Kennel Club.
