The amazing benefits of pumpkin

Posted by Wilder Harrier Team on

Spooky season is among us, and our doggos deserve to celebrate Halloween, just like us! What better way to celebrate than to spice up your dog’s kibble with your leftover pumpkin puree! Did you know that pumpkin is amazing for your dog? Here are 10 reasons why pumpkin is a great addition to your dog’s bowl : 


  • Pumpkin is high in essential vitamins and minerals and low on calories. 
  • Pumpkins contain lots of vitamin A which is great for eye health. 
  • Pumpkin can boost your dog’s immune system because it is filled with vitamin C. 
  • Pumpkin is a great moisturizer for your dog’s skin and coat!
  • Pumpkin flesh is filled with omega-3 which have anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Pumpkins' best characteristic is that it regulates the digestive system! 
  • Pumpkin has high amounts of an amino acid cucurbitacin, which is actually toxic to many common dog parasites and has been used to expel worms in ruminating animals.
  • Pumpkin can also be a great additive if your dog needs to lose a few pounds. 
  • Pumpkin naturally adds more water to your dog’s diet and helps him stay hydrated. 
  • Pumpkins taste great to dogs and can help any picky eater lick the bottom of his bowl!
