These homemade pumpkin dog treats are ridiculously easy and they are also very healthy for your dog! I’m telling you, these pumpkin dog treats are the best my dogs have ever tasted!
Today, I made a batch of healthy Pumpkin & Peanut Butter Dog Treats and they turned out awesome! Kenzo devoured his & Vík nibbled on his (slowly but surely, as he does with everything).
I am a HUGE pumpkin pie fan – no matter what time of the year. Yes, we have a lot of it during the holidays, but we also make it outside of the holiday months, too!! Since having these easy pumpkin dog treats, I know I won’t be leaving the pups out from enjoying some pumpkin as much as I do!!
Pureed pumpkin is high in fiber (helping with diarrhea and constipation), antioxidants & essential fatty acids (good for a healthy coat), and can aid in maintaining good urinary tract health.
The fiber found in Pumpkin is also full of prebiotics! According to the AKC, “Fiber also acts as a prebiotic. Prebiotics are different from probiotics. They stimulate the growth or activity of these beneficial bacteria in the intestines and inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria. Fiber does this by lowering the pH level and providing the necessary nutrients these bacteria need.”
Don’t you just love those puppy paw print molds?? I bought mine on Amazon HERE. They come in a two-pack of paws and bones. But, you can use any shape you want! There are so many cute ones available online!
