Today is National Pumpkin Day! Not only are pumpkins the perfect fall decoration and a staple in all the best autumn desserts, but they have unique health benefits to dogs and human alike. 

Pumpkin can have the following health benefits for dogs:

  1. They are high in fiber and can help aid in digestive health including constipation and diarrhea.
  2. Pumpkin can act as a natural de-worming agent and help fight tapeworms and other intestinal parasites.
  3. It slows digestion and will help your pet feel full for longer.
  4. Pumpkins are high in Vitamin C and can help improve joint health.
  5. The zinc content in pumpkin can help improve skin and coat health. 
  6. Beta-carotene, which is a potent antioxidant found in pumpkin, slows the aging process.
