The Great Pumpkin

It’s the great pumpkin!

Not that kind, though.

This kind.

It’s that time of the year again.

Heh. (If you don’t get the ermahgerd thing, just say it out loud to yourself and it’ll make sense. Then, go to this link and ermahgerd yer hert ert (your heart out). :-D)

Adding pumpkin (always go for the cans with no added sugar) to your dog’s food can be beneficial to his/her health for a multitude of reasons including:

  • Fiber – Pumpkin is loaded with fiber and fiber = regular (and healthy!) number twos

  • Vitamin A – Pumpkin is high in Vitamin A, which assists in the maintenance of healthy skin and coat

Plus, it’s tasty! And festive. 😉

If you’re looking for a new mix-in for your dog’s food, give some canned pumpkin a try. At $2-3 a can, it’s well worth it!

  1. I have heard this a lot lately, great information! I always soak my kibble in very warm water for 5 minutes(old habits die hard), but still provide bones and other dental toys. I would love to eventually transition to raw feeding.

  2. I’m so glad that I recently came across your blog! You have some GREAT info and product reviews!

    Athena gets pumpkin a couple of times a week whether it be mixed in with her kibble in her bowl or in a frozen Kong. It has helped in a couple of instances when she had an upset tummy.

    I was so excited that this week I found a pack of canned pumpkin at Costco! 3 of the large cans for only around $7.50! Such a deal!
