Is Pumpkin Good for Dogs?

You might be asking, "Is pumpkin good for dogs?" Absolutely! Pumpkin is great for digestive health. Pumpkin can help regulate bowel movements, alleviating both constipation and diarrhea in dogs.

Pumpkin is also nutrient rich, great for weight management, and promotes a healthy skin and coat. You will just want to make sure you are using plain pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling).

If you are looking for an easy way to incorporate pumpkin into your dog’s diet, theRuns Be Done supplement is a great way to do so since this can be mixed into your dog’s meals. This supplement contains other ingredients that are great for digestion too - slippery elm, bentonite clay, apple pectin, and more.

Does My Dog Need Prebiotics and Probiotics?

All dogs can benefit from probiotics and prebiotics. Incorporating them will help support your dog's digestive system from the inside out. Dr. Harvey’s Digestive Probiotics soft chews are great to help maintain normal gut function.

The digestive system is composed of good and bad bacteria. These chews include a 7-strain probiotic, prebiotic blend, cinnamon, and ginger root to help maintain a normal balance of these bacteria.

Can Dogs Have Raw Goat’s Milk?

Raw goat’s milk is safe for dogs of all ages. Raw goat’s milk contains probiotics, digestive enzymes, and good bacteria. Raw goat’s milk is easy for dogs to digest and can be easily added to their meals, or be used in frozen treats like the one here!

Incorporating nutritious frozen treats into your pup's diet is not only a delightful way to pamper them but also an investment in their overall well-being. This simple recipe specifically targets and supports their digestive health.

Pumpkin, rich in fiber and essential nutrients, helps regulate bowel movements and promotes healthy skin and coat. Our Runs Be Done supplement offers a comprehensive digestive solution, with added benefits from ingredients like slippery elm, bentonite clay, and apple pectin.

And let's not forget the importance of prebiotics and probiotics; our Digestive Probiotics soft chews provide a well-rounded approach to maintaining your dog's gut health. Raw goat’s milk, a safe and nutritious addition, complements the recipe perfectly. So, go ahead, whip up these delightful treats, and enjoy watching your pup relish them while reaping the rewards of a happy and healthy digestive system!

Can Dogs Eat Frozen Snacks? What Kind of Frozen Treats Can Dogs Have?

Yes, dogs can eat frozen snacks. Frozen treats are great for enrichment or for cooling down during hot weather. You’ll just want to make sure the snacks are safe and suitable for them. Some examples of foods that would be safe to feed frozen include: banana, strawberries, and frozen bone broth cubes. As with any treat, always supervise your pup when giving them a frozen snack.
