    Default Fresh pumpkin..

    I was reading about being careful with pumpkin because of the carotene and Vitamin A, and it's toxicity. It said to feed pure canned pumpkin, not raw pumpkin. But what about fresh pumpkin that you cook up and mash? Is that OK?
    It's a Bully thing <3

    When the bully was created, it licked the hand of God and God stroked its head, saying, "What do you want, baby bully?" It replied, "My Lord, I want to stay with you, in heaven, on a mat in front of the gate."

    I assume that would be ok but not sure. Hope someone else has a better answer!

    Yeah not sure either but I would think it is.

    I am not 100% sure on this one either but I have to say my boys ate plenty of raw pumpkin at halloween when we cleaned the pumpkin and they loved it and I didnt see any bad changes. Have always given our dogs scraps of it when we cleaned out the pumpkins but I dont know for sure. We also used to feed grapes like crazy back in the day not knowing too.

    O would imagine you would cook alot of the vitamins out of it. Just like everything... moderation is the key word. Pumpkin is good for dogs that have diarrhea... So I imagine it is safe for them to eat cooked.

    My bully's breeder advised me not to give pumpkin except for one reason and then only pure unspiced canned pumpkin.
    That is if she is having digestive issue or diarrhea . Pumpkin will seize a bully up quick and if my Pepper gets the $hits I give her a tablespoon of canned UNSPICED pumpkin to tighten her bowels so to speak. She will go a day or so with no bowel movement which gives me the time to give her a bit of boiled hamburger and rice so to take care of the runs and give her firm stools.
