In most cases, diarrhea has an astonishingly simple solution: canned pumpkins. Canned pumpkin is essentially pumpkin in a puree form. Pumpkins are very rich in fiber and adding two teaspoons of canned pumpkin in your PON's food helps the digestion process. Canned pumpkin has a large quantity of dietary fiber and it will also absorb the excess water present in the stool. This makes your PON's stool more firm and results may be visible within a few hours. Offer your PON and a half to two teaspoons of canned pumpkin for daily supplementation and larger amounts (two tablespoons) for digestive upsets.
An additional benefit of canned pumpkin may be found for treating PONS for constipation. It softens your PON's stool and can cure an upset stomach quite rapidly. This makes canned pumpkins one of the best natural remedies for your PON's digestive issues..
Canned pumpkin is also a great addition to dog treats. You can add some canned pumpkin to your favorite dog treat recipes. Please consult this month's treat recipe.
As stated above, canned pumpkin is low in saturated fat, sodium and cholesterol. It is also a good source of Vitamin E, Magnesium, Phosphorus and Potassium and is also a very good source of dietary fiber. Some vets even recommend canned pumpkin for weight loss in dogs.
