I’m being told by friends that it’s okay to give a teaspoon of puréed pumpkin to dogs and cats for gut health. This is the pure pumpkin not the one with spices and additives. What’s your opinion on this?

I've heard that about human beings as well, so this time of year I got the healthiest gut on the planet courtesy of my wife's pie making skills!!

Our Vet recommended 1 TBS of pumpkin for our old dog that has digestive issues

Been doing it for over a year and seems to help things along

He likes the pumpkin too


Is it time for your medication or mine?

I think the question is for Dr. Doug, not the forum members.

Helps with older dogs and their constipation problems.

Our vet recommended this to us years ago. Dogs love it.

Pure pumpkin w/o additives OK. It does help some regulate digestive functions. It isn't a cure all.
