Pumpkins are not just for decoration…
Fall is when most folks decorate with pumpkins, but what if those pumpkins could improve your pets’ health?
Pumpkins, consumed from the can or freshly cooked with the seeds, can create a healthy addition to your cats’ and dogs’ diets. Did you know that pumpkins contain nearly three grams of fiber per one-cup serving? Small doses of pumpkin can yield some amazing benefits: more digestive fiber, fewer fur balls, treats some parasites, healthy skin and coat, and urinary tract support.
So, take those jack-o’-lanterns and Thanksgiving decorations and turn them into fall treats for your pets! The best way to store your leftover pumpkin is pureed in ice trays. Just freeze and pop out what you need as you need it.
Stop by Four Dogs Pet Supplies (2630 North Davidson Street) for more details on how to make pumpkin work for you and your pets. We have pouches and frozen pumpkin yogurt treats ready to purchase all year round.
Four Dogs Pet Supplies is turning six years old! So, mark your calendars.
