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.


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?

bought two of these

Searched for different ones, decided on this one. Exceeded all expectations. Bought one for a new care and another for our 2004 4 runner. Provides good protection for vehicle and our 140 dog. We travel and camp extensively also good for bringing thing back form garden shop.

Great product!

Does exactly what we wanted. We can easily raise a part of the seat to give our dogs better access to the rear seat of our pickup. And it's easily removed or installed when we need to put humans back there!

Great Cover - Great Company

The covers are absolutely the best and I have had quite a few over the years. I had a minor issue with my cover and asked if I could get it repaired. The response was: "Thank you for reaching out to us. Your cover is absolutely covered by 4Knines Lifetime Warranty!" I received a new one.

Perfect gift

I purchased this rear bench cover for a friend with two dogs that frequently accompany her to her barn. No problem with wet, muddy feet. Fits well and protects her investment in her car. The cover arrived promptly as promised.
