Canned Pumpkin for Your Pooch

sprocketcloseup.jpgI regularly add a heaping tablespoon of canned pumpkin (the plain pumpkin, not pumpkin pie mix) to my dog’s food each meal. Her vet suggested it when she was having issues with her anal gland. Ever since I started, she’s been more regular than rain, and she snarfs up food lickitty split!

But I just learned that in addition to providing fiber and making her regular, the pumpkin may be providing her with other benefits. Apparently, pumpkin is good for when your pet has a tummy ache and can ease the transition to a new type of food. So, if you don’t have white rice and boiled chicken the next time your pet get sick after going through the garbage in the summer, try giving him or her a bit o’ pumpkin.
