Can my dog eat pumpkin?

Yes, not only can dogs eat pumpkin, it is a healthy and popular snack item.

Loaded with vitamin A, fiber, zinc, iron, potassium, beta-carotene, and alpha-carotene, pumpkin is a popular item found in dog recipes because of its easy on the digestive tract. The taste also appears to be popular with dogs, making it one of the foods most often found in daily treats, not just holiday recipes.

The fleshy fruit of the pumpkin is most commonly used, but pumpkin seeds can also be fed to dogs (ideally unsalted and roasted).

Do not feed any part of the pumpkin rind, stem or leaves to dogs, however. Only the inside of the pumpkin is edible.
