Is Pumpkin Puree safe for dogs?
Pumpkin puree can be labeled as 100% pure pumpkin, pumpkin puree, solid pack pumpkin, or simply “pumpkin.” Regardless of what it’s called, one thing pumpkin puree won’t contain is any sort of seasonings or sugar—it’s just cooked and mashed squash.
Pumpkin is safe for dogs and can help alleviate diarrhea and constipation. Note that you should NEVER use canned pumpkin pie, as it may contain xylitol, which is toxic to dogs.
Doggie Pumpkin Cookies
- 2 eggs
- 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 tbsp cinnamon
- 1/2 cup hot water
- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- Preheatoven to 375 degrees
- Lightly coat cookie sheet with coconut oil. I used a Scott towel to do so. You could use nonstick cooking spray or line it with parchment paper as well.
- In a large bowl, beat eggs and combine flour, pumpkin puree, cinnamon, and hot water. Fold all ingredients together.
- Add flour to counter and roll out your dough to about 1/4 inch thick. Some of these cookies are thicker than others.
- Use cookie cutters to cut out dough. Or take a spoonful and drop onto cookie sheet. Whichever your prefer.
- Bake at 375 for approximately 15 to 20 minutes depending on your oven. Mine took 18 minutes.
- Let cook and serve!
- Store in refrigerator in air tight container for up to 3 days or freeze.
I’m Bobbi Jo, a lab-lover who took my passion for animals and dogs and turned it into something bigger. When I adopted Jake and Maggie, my love for them became the driving force behind Two Adorable Labs, and my blog was born. My hope is to not only share them with the world, but to help educate others on the importance of animal health and well-being.
