It’s officially pumpkin spice season for humans—but that doesn’t mean your pup can’t get in on the trend! Pumpkin is a dog superfood, packed with fiber and high in nutrients like potassium, iron, and Vitamins A and C. This nutritious ingredient is often used to cure a variety of canine digestion issues, too. Below, Ollie found some of the best (and most fun!) pumpkin recipes that are as healthy for your pup as they are Insta-worthy.

Pumpkin donuts for dogs

Topped with a pup-friendly frosting, these apple-flavored doggie doughnuts are packed with anti-inflammatory ingredients like ground flaxseed and cinnamon.

Pumpkin peanut butter treats for dogs
