The Benefits of Pumpkin for Dogs

Pumpkins - not just for Halloween and not just for us humans! Pumpkin offers an abundance of health and nutritional benefits for our furry besties. This is why it was a clear winner for our Vet Nutritionist when selecting key ingredients to include in our Wholefood Supplement range. Here are some of the reasons why this powerhouse of a vegetable is so important to your pup's diet...

Digestive Health

One of the most well-known benefits of pumpkin for dogs is its positive impact on their digestive system. Pumpkin is an excellent source of dietary fibre, which aids in maintaining regular bowel movements and preventing constipation. Additionally, it can be helpful for dogs with diarrhoea, as it can help absorb excess moisture in the intestines and firm up their stools.

Weight Management

Maintaining a healthy weight is crucial for a dog's overall well-being. Pumpkin is low in calories and furthermore, the fibre in pumpkin can help regulate appetite, making it a valuable addition to a weight management plan for overweight dogs.


Pumpkin is packed with essential vitamins and minerals that benefit dogs. It is a good source of vitamin A, which supports vision health, as well as vitamin C, which boosts the immune system. Additionally, pumpkin provides potassium, iron, and beta-carotene, which all contribute to overall health.

These nutrients are especially beneficial for senior dogs or those with specific health concerns, helping them maintain their vitality and immune function.

From promoting digestive health and weight management to providing essential nutrients and supporting skin and coat health, pumpkin is a versatile and nutritious addition to your dog's meals. Our team of experts have taken the fuss out of all the pumpkin prep for you by creating a Digestion Support Wholefood Powder. This powder allows you to conveniently sprinkle not only the amazing benefits of pumpkin over your dog's regular food but also includes hemp fibre, inulin, nutritional yeast and psyllium husk allowing you to feel completely confident in their well being.
