We humans love to find creative ways to incorporate more pumpkin into our diets (pumpkin tacos, anyone?), but did you know pumpkin is a superfood you can add to your dog's dish as well? Pumpkin contains essential micronutrients and is rich in fiber which helps maintain a healthy gut microbiome to support your dog's digestive system. Pumpkin also contains vitamins A, E and C as well as potassium and iron which provide nourishment for vision health and a strong immune system.

  • Plant 2 pumpkin seeds together, about 1 inch into soil
  • Pumpkins need lots of sunshine and lots of space
  • Pumpkins need to be watered regularly
