3 Pumpkin Recipes for Dogs

'Tis the season for all things pumpkin. Dogs, too, love the taste of pumpkin, and it can even offer some health benefits (like relief from both diarrhea and constipation). But since dogs can't join you in sipping that spiced latte, we've found some ways you can help them enjoy the flavors of fall. (Note: Make sure you offer only canned pureed pumpkin, not canned pumpkin pie mix, which has additional sugars and spices.)

Here are three recipes, listed in order of difficulty.
