On the Ball: Freeze Pumpkin For Poo Probs

Why the sad face, North? You're all out of pumpkin I see. Even though my pooch didn't get to sample the organic canned pumpkin that time around, I've got a special Summer treat that I'm gonna whip up this weekend.Frozen pumpkin cubes! Many pets are crazy about ice or frozen PB and banana shapes, and pumpkin cubes are no different.

To make, simply fill trays with a mixture of canned pumpkin (the pure stuff, not pie filling) and water, using just enough liquid to get a smooth consistency. Freeze it, then offer to a lucky pup as a special treat. In addition to working miracles on kitty's hairballs, yummy pumpkin can also help with your pets' constipation or diarrhea issues. Seriously. But even if your doggie's doo is fine, I bet he'd appreciate this special snack during the Dog Days of Summer.

i freeze pumpkin everyday for my pups and they love it! not only does it help with poop issues, but it is also low calorie and helps supplement my sheltie's food (since he could eat an entire bag of dog food and still feel hungry).

Pumpkin is the best remedy. I have used it for Cuba forever.

My Chihuahua had problems with constipation due to a congenital birth defect in his hips. Once he almost died because of it. That's when my vet told me about pumpkin. Pumpkin was the only thing that got him "going" again.
