Canned pumpkin is packed with fiber along with a ton of healthy vitamins and minerals. One cup of canned pumpkin has 7 grams of fiber. Working fiber into a dog’s diet can ease digestive problems, including constipation and diarrhea. Soluble fiber is responsible for regulating the digestive system by binding loose stools and also eases constipation by absorbing water into the digestive tract and softening hard stools. Insoluble fiber is what helps keep you regular. Insoluble fiber is not soluble which forces stool to pass quicker which means no constipation! Add 2 teaspoons of canned pumpkin to your dog’s regular bowl of food to help your dog’s tummy!
