Dogs love these Pumpkin Peanut Butter Treats, and you’ll love that they are made with healthy, whole-food ingredients! Our organic pet supplements are made of 100 percent pure pumpkin. Pumpkin can be useful as a treatment for gastrointestinal issues. It contains several healthy ingredients, such as potassium; phosphorous; calcium; vitamins A, C, and K; and lots of fiber. These treats also add baby spinach, carrots, and zucchini for a whole-food treat dogs will love.
Some dogs will eat pumpkin on its own, while others prefer to have it stirred into a small amount of dry food—about 2-3 tablespoons. You can also freeze them into treats, put them on a lick mat, or combine with dry food and freeze into a Kong toy. These Pumpkin Dog Biscuits are another great way to get pumpkin in your dogs’ diet. However your dog likes it, canned pumpkin can be a very valuable addition to their diet if they have gastrointestinal problems, especially mild chronic constipation.
How much pumpkin does your dog need each day? Generally, 1 tablespoon per 10 pounds of body weight is perfect. See our serving sizes chart to determine how fast your dog will go through a can or a case of our organic pumpkin pet food supplement.
