Pumpkin and Pets

It is that time of the year, pumpkin is in season, in the air, and in your coffee. As you enjoy the taste of fallen leaves, cooler days, and pumpkin-spiced everything, you may wonder if you can share this simple pleasure with your furry famCat-Dog-Pumpkinily member.

Good news! Not only can you share this amazing fall experience with your furry family member. There are even some benefits to your pet for having a bit of pumpkin in his life. Although, the sugar-heavy filling and syrups we often put into our own treats are not good for your pet. Canned, unsweetened pumpkin filling, pumpkin seeds, and freshly-cooked pumpkin can all be healthy treats for your dog or cat. (Please note, all treats should be given in moderation.)

Pumpkin Benefits

Canned  (Unsweetened)

As we begin to have shorter and colder days, your pet may be less energetic and need a little help losing weight. A tablespoon of canned pumpkin in place of a teaspoon of your pet’s food (assuming a ten-pound furry, scale as appropriate) will make your pet as full as they normally do, but can help your furry loose a bit of weight.

Seeds

Pumpkin seeds are high in essential fatty acids, antioxidants, Vitamin A, beta-carotene, potassium, and iron. Your pet can eat them without any cooking necessary (so can you!), but make sure you watch your animal with them. Some animals in their haste to enjoy the treat forget to chew, if this is the case, you may want to cut them into bite sized pieces for your furry.

Pureed

This high fiber treat is beneficial for any pet having an issue with their digestive system. If your animal is having stomach problems a dollop of this treat on their food can help regulate their system. (This benefit extends to you too!)

Can’t Get Enough Pumpkin?
