Pumpkins. We see them everywhere throughout the autumn season. We carve them for Halloween, we display them along with some fall foliage and scarecrows indoors, and out and of course, we put pumpkins in our pies for Thanksgiving. Pumpkin not only symbolizes the onset of the holiday season but pumpkin is very healthy for your dog and cat. How so? Keep reading!
Pumpkins are an amazing antioxidant! Antioxidants are powerful substances that counteract the damaging effects of oxidation in living organisms. Pumpkins have beta-carotene, alphacarotene, fiber, potassium, zinc, vitamin A and fiber. Sound familiar? These antioxidants are also necessary for a healthy human diet! What is good for the goose is good for the gander right?
Additionally, pumpkin is an all natural way to prevent constipation and diarrhea. Just a couple of tablespoons of canned pumpkin and your pooch’s tummy troubles will be a thing of the past. This is due to the high fiber and water content that pumpkin contains. We love all natural remedies!
Wait, there’s more! Your pet can eat the pumpkin seeds as well! Just be sure to roast them first! Finally, here’s a treat you can share with your pet. The seeds are filled with vitamins, fatty acids ….more antioxidants! The taste isn’t the only benefit either! The seeds promote good urinary healthy as well as a silky, shiny, soft coat of hair! You can store roasted pumpkin seeds for up to a month!
Is your pet on a diet? Is he turning his nose up at his diet doggie food? Well, pumpkin also promotes weight loss. The fiber will help your pet feel full quicker! Your pet will lose weight and enjoy every minute of it! Of course, he still needs a good amount of daily exercise but hey, that’s where we step in the picture! Call us !!
Pumpkin is an overall healthy option for your pet. Just don’t let them eat your jack-o-latern. As soon as you cut open a pumpkin, it begins to collect bacteria and allowing your pet to eat a jack-o-latern (especially one that’s been displayed for awhile) is a sure fire way to end up in the vets office.
Pumpkin Pie for Everyone !!
