Calories in Knox blox for dogs

Post by CarolC »

3 c water - 0 cal
1 c Cafe Nara chicken broth - 32 cal
4 packets Knox gelatine - 80 cal

TOTAL CALORIES PER RECIPE - 112 cal
TOTAL CUPS OF KNOX BLOX PER RECIPE - 4+
CALORIES PER CUP - 28 cal
CALORIES PER HALF CUP - 14 cal

Not entirely sure how many cups the recipe makes because gelatine swells, so it would be more correct to say at least 4 cups per recipe.

Hmm. I guess they'd be the same as for people...

Are Knox blox ever made without broth? Just plain? He's getting soft stools. I could reduce the broth. Don't know if he'd like them plain?
EDIT: Answered my own question. Made some plain with only Knox and water. Millie likes them. Pip wasn't interested, but he didn't want the flavored kind either, wasn't thirsty. Will try again later.

Sure, you could try it. Dunno how good they'd taste.
