Why Should I Feed Pumpkin to My Dog?

Every year around Halloween, our children (and even us adults) enjoy some time carving pumpkins, making our own personal creations on them.

  Pumpkin Health Benefits to Your Pet Dog Pumpkin seems to be a food of many uses - aside from pumpkin carving, we have grown fond of things like pumpkin pie, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin spiced coffee, pumpkin spiced tea, and so much more! Now, it is becoming more and more popular that people are raving about feeding pumpkin to their pets. We hear how healthy it is, and how many benefits come with feeding pumpkin to dogs. But is it, really? To answer the question, yes pumpkin is very healthy for your dog, but why? Let's start with the seeds. Pumpkin seeds contain protein, carbohydrates and fiber. Roast them, grind them up, and feed to your dog! The flesh of a pumpkin has vitamin A, which is great for their vision, and vitamin C, which boosts the immune system. Another benefit of Vitamin C, is with dogs who have joint problems. Dogs who deal with this issue, need this particular vitamin more than their bodies are producing. Pumpkin contains an antioxidant called Beta-Carotene. The benefit of this is that it slows down the aging process of your dog! The zinc that a pumpkin contains, will improve the skin and coat of your dog. And there is no better way to do that, then all natural. Pumpkins can be a great source for this.

DID YOU KNOW?

Pumpkin can help dogs who have diarrhea, as well as dogs who are constipated! How can it do both? The secret behind why a pumpkin helps stop diarrhea, is simple. Pumpkin contains soluble fiber, which helps  slow digestion, and can help manage the diarrhea by absorbing water. Pumpkin helps with constipation due to it's high fiber, and water contentAND...Pumpkin is also great for kitties too! Such a simple, affordable, yet effective product, that can help in so many different situations. Little things such as pumpkin, can really make a difference in our pets healthy life. Making small changes, adding natural products to their meals - all of these things are beneficial to their health, and well worth the two minutes it takes to add it to their diet.

What about you? Have you ever tried giving pumpkin to your pets - did you know how beneficial it can be?

Rear Bench Seat Cover

I have purchased several seat covers from area pet stores and have returned them. I love the one I got from 4Knines because it was easy to install, it's shaped just like the bench seat in my car, its nice looking and it doesn't slide around. I have a large dog and a medium sized dog and the cover stays put! Thanks, 4Knines!

Seat cover

We have 2 big dogs and an hour and a half trip to the lake house. The lab sheds black hair everywhere on the tan leather, the Goldendoodle but he has long nails and left little holes in the seat of the car I had before. Got the new car and immediately ordered your cover, it came in quickly, was easy to install and saved the new car lots of damage. Love it! Recommend it highly!

Recently purchased the waterproof bed liner. Very happy with the quality workmanship and that the material is soft and doesn‰Ûªt make noise when shifting positions.
