    DefaultNeed to confirm how much pumpkin . . .

    Hi everyone! I know this has been discussed at length many, many times, but . . . . just to confirm . . . . to add more fiber to your dog's meal, how much pumpkin a day. I recall seeing 1 tsp. Is that at each meal, once a day -- my memory is not what it used to be.

    Thank you (sneeks away . . . slightly embarassed for having to ask. . . :-[)

    I only give Nellie pumpkin when her anal glands seem to be bothering her. I give her about 2-3 tablespoons in her evening meal for a couple of days. A small can lasts about 3-4 days.

    I give Buddy pumpkin every day, a couple of good tablespoons with his green beans before bed. He loves it, and I sometimes mix it in his yogurt for the Kongs, too.

    I am using the pumpkin to help Haylee's anal gland issues -- she fills up so fast. Hopefully this will help. Thanks for the info!!

    Since we put Buddy on pumpkin and different food, he has not had an issue or scootched his butt once. ;D

    Jackie, what kind of food is Buddy eating? We have such an issue with Haylee's anal glands -- I'm hoping the pumpkin will help. I'm still not sure if it is something in her food. She has been on Eagle Pack Oatmeal and Duck formula going on 4 yrs. now. I ordered a small bag of the Wellness Core grain free lite for less active dogs. It has more fiber. We'll see how that goes. I'm just curious what kind of food Buddy is eating. Thanks!
