Yesterday it was beer for your dogs, and today it’s ice cream for man’s best friend.

Well to be more accurate it is canine gelato. The Italian treat contains no milk, eggs or sugar, all of which are harmful to fido.

With Rome reaching temperatures in the high 90s this week, dogs are indulging in the treat on the outskirts of the city,

Rome vetrinarian Marialivia Palmieri says water remains the best cool-down treat for dogs. But she said the special canine gelato does dogs no harm, and can be gratifying for pet owners.

The gelato comes in vanilla, rice and yogurt flavors and is selling for around $2.50 a serve.
