It's Fall and for anyone who loves pumpkin, it's their favorite season! Pumpkin has become the symbol for Fall and dogs and cats enjoy pumpkin just as much as we do! While we are getting our pumpkin spice lattes, baking pumpkin pies, and visiting the pumpkin patch, your pet can enjoy pumpkin with you.
Aside from tasting great, here are some benefits for your furry friend:
The best way to incorporate pumpkin into your pet's diet is to purchase plain canned pumpkin and just add it to their regular food. Make sure to not purchase the "ready for a pie" version, which has added fats and sugars. Talk to your vet about how much pumpkin to safely give your pet since it varies depending on your pet's size and current dietary needs.
