During the fall season, pumpkin is a popular flavor that may have many health benefits for pets too, according to an article from the Brandon Sun.
Pumpkin alone is a very healthy food packed with antioxidants and phytonutrients, the article claims. It contains a number of vitamins that are beneficial to humans and pets, including vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K and vitamin E. It also contains minerals such as manganese, magnesium, zinc, potassium, copper and iron. The article says that pumpkin is high in essential fatty acids and contains no trans fats, all of which may have health benefits for pets.
