'Tis the season for pumpkin and your pooch will thank you for these dog pumpkin pancakes!
Pumpkin season at our house isn't just for the people. Our dog gets in on the action too with these delicious dog pumpkin pancakes. Sunday breakfast is BIG at our house and our Chelsea loves that she can have her very own special breakfast!
One of the big questions I know is coming is can dogs have pumpkin? It's actually really good for them. Pumpkin for dogs aides in the help of diarrhea and constipation. Just like anything though, be careful to feed in small doses. Pumpkin contains a lot of Vitamin A which in large doses can be bad for dogs. If you have one dog you can freeze these pancakes and reheat for future meals.
Just a warning: These pancakes may cause extreme doggy happiness...so much so your pooch might enjoy a nap afterward.
