Homemade Pumpkin Dog Food


Rasco had a birthday last week.  Well, kind of ... His actual birthday is Leap Day.  On February 28/March 1, he turned 5.  But, the poor thing was too under the weather to really enjoy it.


Sick puppy. 

When Rasco was feeling better, the vet wanted Rasco to stay on an easy diet. I don't know if you remember, but in a previous post I described how pumpkin is to dogs like ginger is to people. The vet recommended pumpkin purée.  


So, I made Rasco some soothing pumpkin dog food, with just two ingredients:


You'll need one can of pumpkin and one full teaspoon of peanut butter. 

Heat the pumpkin on the stove for eight minutes, blending in the peanut butter. 

A birthday treat.  (The bacon treat got pulled out, but it made it smell like it was for him.  And, the bones are saved for a healthier day).

Rasco LOVES pumpkin. 

Just store the rest in the refrigerator until tomorrow.
