2. Serve It Up
When it comes to feeding your pup fresh pumpkin, open it up, remove the seeds and fibrous strands. What is left inside is the pulp or meat of the pumpkin. Scoop out that meat and puree it in a blender or food processor to make it into a nice, digestible consistency for your dog. Some owners will freeze that pureed meat into small cubes so they can continue serving it to their dog throughout the year when pumpkins aren’t as plentiful.
For a simpler way to serve this festive gourd, another option is canned pumpkin available at most grocery stores. Just ensure that it is canned pumpkin as pumpkin pie filling or pumpkin-flavored baby food may contain filler, sugars or spices that may be harmful to your pup.
