Scarf'd: Dog-Friendly St. Patrick's Day Shakes
Let your pup in on the St.Patrick’s Day celebration with this healthy and minty shake. Share this DIY St. Patrick's Day pet recipe from Figo with fellow pet parents, and of course, your best fur friend.
We’re about all things green (technically Figo mint, our brand color) – but also because St. Patty’s Day is quickly approaching. And if you're from the Windy City, you also know it's one of Chicago's favorite holidays – we dye the entire Chicago River green for the occasion! That's why Figo can’t help but get into the Irish spirit this month.
If you're planning to toast with a Guinness or two, you may want to include your pets in on the action by making them a pet-friendly version of the ever-famous Shamrock Shake. Enjoy the St.Patty’s Day celebrations, and don’t forget to rock your (Figo) mint! Sláinte!
