BENEFITS OF PUMPKIN FOR DOGS & CATS
We are all busy people, so let's keep things simple by buying canned pumpkin - that is, cans that contain ONLY pumpkin (no added ingredients such as sugar & spices found in pie fillings).  Also, as with anything else, get the approval of your veterinarian to add pumpkin to the diet and confirm serving size with the vet.

- General consensus is it's best to start with very small serving sizes and gradually increase as needed.

- Your vet may recommend an initial serving size of 1 teaspoon for smaller dogs & cats; maybe 1 tablespoon initially for larger dogs.

SO WHY ADD PUMPKIN TO THE DIET?
Basically, to aid with digestive, urinary & weight health issues.

- Pumpkin is a wonderful source of highly soluble (90%) fiber.  This is especially noteworthy for pets that consume primarily dehydrated, highly processed kibble.

- Pumpkin can help with the secretion of gastric acid & pancreatic enzymes, thus possibly reducing inflammation in the pet's body.

- Cats will probably experience less fur ball issues when a small amount of pumpkin is added to their food.

- If you have a dog that wants to eat anything/everything it sees in the house, pumpkin can help prevent blockages.

And pumpkin can be a big booster of healthy skin & fur and maybe even minimize the presence of carcinogens & intestinal parasites and tapeworms.

HOW DOES PUMPKIN ACCOMPLISH THIS?
Well, as noted above, pumpkin is high in water-soluble fiber.  And it is a great source of Vitamins A & C, as well as beta-carotenes, potassium, iron, amino acids & cucurbitins.

Always make sure the pets have plenty of fresh, clean water and that the vet has ruled out more serious medical conditions that require the injection of intravenous fluids and/or the administration of electrolyte solutions before adding pumpkin to any pet's diet.
