By AFP News    August 19, 2011 at 01:57PM

GENEVA - Swiss food giant Nestle said 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.
