It is not recommended to give your the carved pumpkin that has been sitting on your windowsill.
However, canned natural unsweetened pumpkin, pumpkin seeds, and freshly cooked pumpkin has multiple benefits for dogs .
Pumpkin is good for your dog's digestive health as it is a great source of fibre.
Pureed pumpkin which has no added sugar, or spice, can assist your dogs and cats with constipation as well as diarrhoea.
Adding a tablespoon or two to their regular meal is considered to help dogs be regular.
This can also help dogs who have indigestion or upset stomachs.
Pumpkin seeds are high in essential fatty acids and antioxidants and are said to be good for overall healthy skin and fur.
The oils in pumpkins’ flesh and seeds are considered to support urinary health.
They are also an excellent source of Vitamin A, beta-carotene, potassium and iron, and may even reduce the likelihood your pet will develop cancer.
Pumpkin also helps weight loss; by reducing a portion of dog food and replacing it with the same portion of canned pumpkin it helps dogs lose weight .
