Plain canned Pumpkin to sooth a dog’s tummy

I thought I should post a bit of info about my using canned pumpkin for dog tummy issues.

Our pet Shelibean hates pumpkin, so I’m writing this post about one of our past pets that loved pumpkin.
Penny Puppy was a special girl and we miss her still. I’m happy to share this memory with you.

*Ask your Veterinarian if pumpkin is right for your dog or cat.
*I’m not a veterinarian or anything.

pnpc-2011Many years ago, we had a wonderful member of our family named ‘Penny Puppy’.  She was a boston terrier-beagle-feist.  She enjoyed food and rarely turned her nose up at anything.

Whenever Penny Puppy had tummy issues I’d put a couple heaping tablespoons of plain canned pumpkin over her food. She’d eat it up like it was a tasty treat and it settled her tummy.

*Use ‘plain pumpkin’ not pie pumpkin nor spiced pumpkin.

I’d put the left-over pumpkin from the freshly opened can in an ice cube tray and freeze it.
After it was frozen, I’d put the cubes in a zip-lock bag with the freeze date on it and then put the bag in the freezer for future use.puppmknPenny Puppy loved pumpkin and it didn’t matter if it was fresh or frozen. After the cubes were frozen, if she had tummy issues, I’d give her a pumpkin cube or two. She’d  gobble it down and it was a special treat. She loved anything cold or frozen.

Penny Puppy weighed over 50 pounds, so that’s why I gave her the amount of pumpkin that I did.

*A smaller dog or cat would need a smaller amount.
*Ask your Veterinarian if pumpkin is right for your dog or cat.

Wishing all your pets a happy healthy day!
