    Default Pumpkin it works!

    My baby Lola has had the runs and she is on meds from the vet and one of the side effects from the meds is the runs so add that together and you have a huge mess! Anyway I had read on here about pumpkin when I first joined so I thought what the heck why not try it? She already has the runs like water so it wont hurt anything anymore than what she already has and if it helps then good! So I gave her one spoon full will her dinner last night and about 30 minutes or so eating she pooed and it was runny then she didnt go again tell this morning which was a surprise because she had been going about every hour but when she did go it was right back to typical puppy poo!!!!!! I can't believe it worked so well! I thought since the meds cause the runs that maybe the pumpkin wouldnt help but I was so wrong. Now my question is the can has been open for about 24 hours but in the fridge so can I freeze the rest? Thanks!

    put it in a plastic tub and use it up, should take about a week, or you can freeze it in ice cube trays and give as needed.

    So glad you tried it! Pumpkin works both ways too..if there's a constipation problem, it helps that too! I'd put it in a sealed container and continue to use while she's on meds. It will stay good in frige for at least a week..just stir up before using each time. Freezing leftovers in ice cubes trays is a great tip!

    How long is pumpkin good for once you open the can? It seems I can never use anywhere near the full can before I think it may be iffy, and I'm not a huge can of freezing it cuz Tonka just leaves it in his bowl to melt

    If you follow Sherrys suggestion..you can just pop out a couple ice cubes per day. Should defrost in no time and stir into kibble! Each cube is pretty close to a teaspoon!

    I have a ice cube tray of pumpkin frozen in the freezer wrapped twice in two freezer bags, I keep them on hand always....as a matter of fact it has been at least 6 months since Ive had to use, Think I better throw them out. Pumpkin is great for both ways!!

    Pumpkin is great! I gave Bruin a couple tablespoons in his food and was back to normal the next day. I think it made his paws itchy and his ears flare up though. Sorry I'm not sure about how many times per day. I just planned on giving it to Bruin (if needed) a couple tbsp once a day in his kibble
