Pumpkin Spice Pets: Fall Treats for Your Furry Friends

Healthy pet treats.

You know it’s Fall when the weather begins to cool off, the leaves begin to change colors, and suddenly, pumpkin spice is everywhere! Pumpkin spice is a fun fall flavor that is included in many human treats, and naturally, pet owners want their furry friends to partake in the fun as well. While we don’t recommend feeding your dog or cat a pumpkin spice latte, the team at Oakhurst Veterinary Hospital put together this list of pet safe fall-themed treats for them to enjoy! 

Pet Safe Fall-Themed Treats 

Believe it or not, several of the fall flavors that we humans enjoy can also be shared with our pets! Ingredients such as apples, pumpkins, sweet potatoes, and more can be a safe and healthy dog treat, as long as they are prepared properly. As with anything, be sure to serve these treats and snacks in moderation. Too much of any of these ingredients could cause an upset tummy for your pup and should not be used as a meal replacement. 

Also, keep in mind when preparing DIY pet treats and preparing for a pet-safe Halloween, to avoid ingredients such as chocolate, xylitol, and other artificial sweeteners. These can be toxic and dangerous for your pets.
