Actually, Pumpkin is not only good for your dog, it's recommended by many Vets. Replace 1/3 of your dog's regular food with canned pumpkin for a low calorie and nutritious meal. You can also freeze canned pumpkin cubes in the freezer, and give them as a tasty treat on hot days.

One thing to keep in mind -- increasing roughage in your dog's diet will also increase poop. The first day or two, you might find that the feces are softer than usual, or even runny. That will normalize after a few days. Don't feed pumpkin or other vegetables before bedtime or you'll be going out at 4:30 in the morning.

Pumpkin is quickly gaining popularity as a great way to keep your dog's weight down. Try mixing in a tablespoon or two with their regular dog food. You can give them the canned kind, which is already cooked, or you can cook fresh pumpkin yourself.

Yes, dogs can eat pumpkin in moderation. Pumpkin is a good source of fiber and can help with digestive health in dogs. Make sure to feed them plain, cooked pumpkin without any added sugars or spices.

It would most likely depend on the animal.

A farming-orientated person could tell you what types of animal forage on their unprotected squash.

I wonder the same thing but no one gave an answer.

So I'm not feeding it to her, but surely the meat of the squash is OK since pumpkin is good for them.
