Tis the season for pumpkin everything. Pumpkin latte, pumpkin creamers, pumpkin muffins, and did we mention, pumpkin dog treats?
Pumpkin is a healthy and ideal snack for your pup. It is high in fiber and water content, which is great for the digestive system and preventing constipation. A spoonful in your dogs regular food may also assist with diarrhea issues. Ideally 1-4 tablespoons a day is great, but don't overfeed to avoid overload of fiber.
From One Sweet Appetite, here is a simple and fun recipe you can make right in your own kitchen.
Pumpkin Dog Treats
Ingredients1 cup pumpkin
3 tablespoons peanut butter
2-1/2- 4 cups Oat flour or wheat flour
