Highly palatable pumpkin is liked by dogs and their owners who recognize its nutritional benefits. This superfood is loaded with beta-carotene, which aids in cancer prevention, reduces inflammation and regulates Vitamin A. Vitamin C boosts basic immune functions, and the presence of Vitamin E also helps maintain healthy skin and coat.
Pumpkin is also high in fiber, which is vital to your dog's digestive health. A small amount of canned or fresh pumpkin puree is often recommended for dogs with upset stomachs, and it is even known to help dogs who suffer from motion sickness. Stay away from pumpkin pie mix, as it is loaded with sugar. Fruitables (http://fidodogtreats.com/fruitables) offers a variety of pumpkin-based treats that dogs enjoy.
