Whenever a dog is sick, I never seem to have any canned pumpkin or sweet potato on hand. Okay, so we picked up sweet potato once, but it turned out to be in syrup which is a no go. Last time Gambit was on a bland diet, I finally managed to pick up a can of pumpkin purée.
It’s difficult to use up an entire can of pumpkin when your dog is only on a bland diet for a few days. Not wanting to waste it, I used the leftovers to make these treats for Gambit.
The recipe? Mix 100% pumpkin puree with equal parts water, pour into an ice cube tray and freeze. Serve one with a meal or as a treat. Purebred shelter mutt approved, with great enthusiasm.
Now we will always have treats on hand for tummy troubles – whether it’s nausea or potty problems!
…or at least we will until I decide a few more times that frozen pumpkin treats are perfect for fall.
