Pumpkin is fiber, vitamin, and mineral-rich. It has lots of vitamin A, vitamin E, and vitamin C as well as plenty of potassium and iron. Most commonly, pumpkin is used to treat diarrhea in dogs at home


If your vet determines there is no serious cause for your dog’s diarrhea, they may recommend adding a little pumpkin to your dog’s food. It has lots of soluble fiber that absorbs water and lowers the pH level of the small intestine. 


The amount of pumpkin your give your dog will depend on their weight and what your vet recommends. 


Typically, 1-4 tablespoons of fresh or canned pumpkin should do the trick. Make sure the canned pumpkin doesn’t have any additives or spices. 


Here are some more non-toxic fruits and vegetables you can give your dog
