Pumpkin for Firmer Stools In Dogs

My year old Scottie has solid stool at first, then it turns to very loose (sometimes diarrhea). I was told to use 100% pumpkin (1 Tbsp. per 50 lbs), WOW it worked like magic. He loved it and this morning his stool was firm and dry.

I've read it will also help dogs & cats if they are constipated... It also works for hairballs in cats...

Yes, it works well but I would check with the vet to rule out a health issue that may be causing the diarrhea.

Sorry but do you mean 1 tbsp of fresh pumpkin added to food or some kind of dried pumpkin? Or 1 Tbsp of pumpkin per 50lb of weight of pet?

Sorry to be a bit dim.

This is a very old, well used method used by dog owners, veterinarians and breeders. Use the solid pack pumpkin.

Hi - this works great - just be sure to get the pure (100%) pumpkin as suggested and not the pumpkin pie filling.

I find mine in cans and after opening I transfer remains to a container and refrigerate.
