What You Should Know About Pumpkin and Pumpkin Pie Filling

The leaves are falling, the temperature is dropping, and pumpkin spice is back! That’s right, the fall craze among humans is pumpkin everything! From pumpkin lattes to pumpkin pasta sauce, it seems like there is nothing it can’t be added to. And the same goes for our pups! The delicious trend has gone to the dogs and it’s being well favored by four-legged testers everywhere.  If you’re one of the pet parents giving or thinking about giving this fall fruit to your furry friends, there are a few things you need to know.

Canned pumpkin products may be delicious, but they lack nutritional value and can include many ingredients our dogs simply don’t need. NuPath® offers a superior pumpkin puree that includes healthy active ingredients and still maintains the delicious taste, which means you can be sure your pet is getting all of the good stuff and none of the bad stuff.

Many traditional grocery store pumpkin product brands add unnecessary ingredients like sugar, cornstarch, and salt, which are not recommended in doggie diets. And while regular canned pumpkin and pumpkin pie filling might taste great to us, they don’t provide the nutritional benefits that would allow your dog to fully reap the benefits of the power of pumpkin. Not only that, but many products that claim to be “pumpkin spice” flavored get away with adding just a few key spices and might not actually include any pumpkin at all.  

So, while you’re making your grocery list (and checking it twice) this fall, make sure the only pumpkin on your list is NuPath® pumpkin puree dog supplements to ensure your pups are getting the max nutrition possible! After all, NuPath has been veterinarian developed just for dogs, not our holiday dessert!
