The holidays mean family, friends, fun and of course, food! For your furry friends, a little too much food can sometimes mean a holiday hangover. But not to worry, one seasonal favorite can be used year-round to help soothe that holiday bellyache – pumpkin!
That’s right, pumpkin is a digestive lifesaver, the Imodium or Pepto for pets. Packed with both soluble and insoluble fiber, pumpkin helps to soothe an upset stomach, slows digestion and firms up loose stools.
But that’s not all. The healthy fiber in pumpkin helps your pet feel more satiated so they won’t be hungry if they’re trying to shed a few pounds. Pumpkin is also low in calories and rich in essential nutrients, like vitamins A & C and beta carotene. Plus, it’s a great source of hydration.
Just a tablespoon per 10 pounds of body weight is all it takes (max out at 5 tablespoons when it comes to the bigger guys). You can add it into your pet’s food, mix with other healthy ingredients & freeze, or offer it alone as a tasty treat!
