Where to Find the Pumpkin for Your Homemade dog treats with pumpkin

When I make dog treats with pumpkin I use 100% canned pumpkin that has No other ingredients added.  But in the Fall, when fresh pumpkins are readily available I like to use a fresh pumpkin for my DIY pumpkin recipes.  

Dogs love pumpkin, and pumpkin has many health benefits for dogs. Pumpkin is a great source of fiber and can be beneficial to your dog's digestion. It also contains carotene, iron and potassium. 

I actually add a little pumpkin to my dogs' food each morning; a tablespoon for my Husky and a teaspoon for my small dog. I never give my dogs raw pumpkin, I always cook it. Raw pumpkin is less digestible than cooked pumpkin.

Canned Pumpkin For Dogs

You can find canned pumpkin at the grocery store, just make sure it's 100% pure pumpkin not pumpkin pie filling, which has other added ingredients. 

You can also find canned pumpkin at PetSmart, under their Authority brand. I recently found that Purina Beyond also makes canned pumpkin for dogs. I like that theirs comes in a smaller, 8oz can, whereas most others come in a 15 once can.

I hope you'll give this yummy homemade dog treat recipe a try!

I think this sounds the perfect recipe to keep any dog happy! We planted pumpkin last month so we have to wait a while before we can make anything!

Yumm. Oh, my pups would have loved this recipe. I always added a little pumpkin to their dinner as well. And with Gibson being an Epi, I added pumpkin to his diet to help him lose weight he gained from his Epi-meds...pumpkin is so healthy! Thanks for the recipe. I'll Pin so others can see it!
