*Why Pumpkin Is Great For Dogs

While there are no scientific benefits that pumpkin is helpful for pets skin or coats, like other fruits, vegetables and coconut oil, pumpkin is excellent for your dog’s digestive track.

Pumpkin has high fiber and water content, which are good for correcting and preventing constipation in dogs, plus can help bulk up your dog’s stool. Start with feeding your dog 1 or 2 tablespoons of pureed pumpkin a day, depending on your dog’s size. Pumpkin may not help your dog with diarrhea or constipation if there is an underlying medical condition. Call your veterinarian for advice if the diarrhea or constipation persists.

Some dogs needs to lose weight, but their owners don’t want them to feel hungry. Pumpkin is a great low-fat dog treat that fills a dog up due to its being high in fiber. The proper amount of pumpkin to feed depends on the size of your dog and dietary needs. Consult your veterinarian for suggested amounts.

Note: When buying canned pumpkin, check and double check the label to make sure you are getting 100-percent pumpkin and not pumpkin pie mix. You can also use fresh pumpkin, but it is important to cook it first. Serve your dog the insides of a fresh roasted or pureed pumpkin.
