Pumpkin Time!

Autumn brings to mind pumpkin patches, jack-o-lanterns and pumpkin pie.  Did you know pumpkin is also very beneficial to your pet’s health?  It is high in fiber, low in fats and loaded with beta-carotene and other vitamins. 

The PetMD on-line says the natural canned pumpkin, (not the spicy kind used for pies), added to your pets wet food also improves digestion and they enjoy the taste too. Talk to your veterinarian about how much pumpkin to safely give your pet since it will vary depending on your pet’s size and current diet. It definitely is good for upset tummies and for preventing hairball formation that causes kitty much distress. It is also 90% water and even promotes shiny coats. 

It can be a great natural and healthy food additive for our furry friend's diet.  Have a pet-safe, pumpkin-filled season!
