Geneva - Swiss food giant Nestle said on Friday that it has a treat in store for dogs keen for an ice-cream to cool down in the summer heat.

Its so-called Frosty Paws ice-cream, are "specially formulated for dogs, who are lactose intolerant and cannot digest dairy products such as regular ice-cream properly", said Nestle in a statement.

However, only American dogs will get to taste these ice-creams, which are only distributed in the United States at the moment.

    Don't know what Nestle is on about because Frosty Paws has been available in the States for about 4 - 5 years already!!

    PLEASE DON'T BUY ANYTHING FROM NESTLE. They buy cocoa from Ivory Coast which uses trafficked children to gather cocoa. More info: http://www1.american.edu/ted/chocolate-slave.htm Let's boycott Nestle to show them we will not tolerate or let them get away with hurting kids and selling things made by slaves to us! You could be able to buy a chocolate bar without wondering if a young child is going to get beaten because of your purchase!
