Some pups – mine included – can eat (and eat and eat) without ever seeming to get a full belly. And, as you can see, North's already a big fan of pumpkin. Adding one to the other, and I wanted to share yet another use for this can o' goodness – weight loss. If your pup's a touch overweight (maybe it's those puppy-dog eyes pleading for another peanut butter yum), consider adding some pumpkin to his normal meal plan. Substitute pure, canned pumpkin (not pie filling) for one-third of your pet's diet. This roughage has a similar texture to canned dog food and happens to be vitamin-filled and super filling, too.
