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?

Puppy misadventure

My 8 month old lab puppy ate something and it required a trip to the vet. They administered peroxide to induce vomiting. He seemed unaffected by the entire experience and after waiting 45 minutes with no results, we were sent home. Naturally, he threw up in the car on the way home. I had recently bought the split rear seat cover. It saved the back seat of my car and cleaned up beautifully. I can only imagine how the cloth seat would have absorbed the odor and stain without the protection of the seat cover. Buying your seat cover was the smartest decision I've made. Love the hammock option.

XL rear seat hammock cover

I own a 2015 Toyota Tundra CrewMax. I was concerned that the XL seat cover wouldn't be big enough for our pups. However, after installing it easily, our pups took to it immediately! Ellie loved the hammock part that comes off the seat a little and slept in it on one of our most recent road trips.

Perfect Fit!

We had fallen back to just putting a sheet over our seats as our Bernese Mountain Dog and our cars never found a perfect match with any of the seat covers we tried until this front seat cover. We immediately put in an order for the backseat cover from 4Knines to give our BMD more room.

Customer Service

I ordered a dog cover for my rear seat. When I placed it, one of the straps was not holding tight so I sent an email to the company that day. I received an immediate response and an immediate replacement. I was so impressed! I love the no hammock cover. It's perfect!
