When Matt was eight years old, his family (mom, dad, two brothers, a sister & their mini Poodle, Babette) would go to the scoop shop every Sunday. Every week, Babette would get a baby vanilla cone. And though it was a really fun treat, she did not tolerate it well. And that’s when the idea for The Bear & The Rat was born. Unlike ice cream for humans, our treats benefit the family canine with billions of live & active probiotic cultures that are great for immunity & digestion (and can even help with doggie breath)!
