Does Your Dog Enjoy This Superfood?
Did you know that pumpkin is one of nature’s best superfoods for dogs? Not only is it a great way to decorate your home at Halloween, but it can also help your pet’s digestion health. Pumpkin is mix of soluble and insoluble fiber, which makes it can help bulk up a watery stool or soften it to make it easier to pass. Fiber also processes fatty acids which in turn are converted into energy. So not only will your pet have a healthy gut, they’ll be all-around more energetic.
Additionally, pumpkin is a great food additive. For one thing, it’s super tasty! Since it’s all-natural and good for your pet, adding it to their food is no problem. Pumpkin can be given every day, but it’s recommended to only give 1 tsp for every 10 lbs as giving too much fiber can cause the opposite of a constipated pet. It can also help if your pet has become a bit of a picky eater. Sometimes your furry friend can get tired of the same food every day. Adding a bit of pumpkin will spice up mealtime while helping internally.
We recommend everyone have some pumpkin on hand in the event of the occasional loose stool. If you buy a can, you can even freeze it in ice cube trays for easy single servings, or buy convenient shelf-stable 1oz pouches, which we also sell.
Here at Petwell Supply, we have a few different pumpkin products to try out if adding pumpkin to your pet’s diet seems like something you want to try!
