Benefits of Pumpkin

We are obsessed with pumpkins. Pumpkin pie, pumpkin spice, pumpkin, everything! Why shouldn't our dogs get to enjoy this fall classic too? After all, with a great pumpkin dog treat recipe, it is super easy to make snacks and treats.

We love sharing our favourite treats with our pets, and we want to tell you some great ways that you can help your dog get on board with our pumpkin addiction. Not only is it delicious, but pumpkin also contains natural and healthy nutrients to promote your pet's well-being. 

Digestion

Pumpkin aids in digestion by providing a nutritious fibre source that helps regulate the speed of digestion and acts as a bulking agent to improve stool quality. It's great in a pinch for quick digestive relief but can also be used preventatively to support regular digestion. 

Skin & Coat Health

Pumpkin also contains high quantities of Vitamin A, E, and Zinc that play an important role in skin and coat health and vision and provide antioxidants to protect against disease-causing free radicals that can damage cells leading to possible health concerns like cancer.

Weight Control

When managing your dog's weight, Pumpkin can provide a feeling of fullness, allowing reduced-calorie diets or portion control to aid in weight loss without leaving your dog starved.

Choosing the Right Treat

The treats in this list are our favourites, and we hope they will be yours too, but remember to select a treat that is appropriate for your pet's needs and the purpose of giving the treat. Smaller breeds and young puppies may need smaller portions to avoid overfeeding and digestive repercussions.

Treats can be up to 10% of a dog's diet as long as the other 90% is coming from a complete and nutritious diet.

Don't be afraid to give a few extra treats when training a new puppy or providing mental stimulation using a puzzle or interactive game. Just make sure you offset these extra calories by temporarily reducing their food or increasing physical and mental activity.

Whether you are looking for a new idea for training treats, increasing your pet's health, or just wanting to share some of your favourite seasonal flavours with your dog, this list offers something for all.
