Canned, pureed pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling) is always a good thing to have in the pantry when you have pets. For dogs, it’s a good remedy for diarrhea; for cats, mixing a little regularly with some wet food helps with hairballs. (It’s the fiber that helps, in both cases.)
This time of year, you can often find canned pumpkin on sale, since it’s a key ingredient in pumpkin pie and other fall-winter-holiday yummies.
So keep an eye out and stock up. I just snagged a half-dozen cans of organic pureed pumpkin and a couple of pureed butternut squash, as well. If nothing else, you alway use them for soup … for you!
