Full of vitamins, minerals, and fiber, fruits and veggies make up an important part of your pup's diet and can help improve digestion. Peel and chop these fall faves into bite-sized chunks, add them to your pup's v-dog kibble, or check out the recipes below for inspiration!
Be sure to introduce any new food gradually into your dog's diet to avoid potential tummy upsets. Check out our guide here for more tips and tricks.
If your pup has a sweet tooth, pears are the way to go! They're also a great option for dogs who have trouble chewing. Start with a small amount, as they are high in fiber and a little can go a long way.

Remove seeds, steam, and cool your pumpkin before feeing to your pup, or look for plain canned pumpkin as a mix-in for kibble or homemade dog treats. Puréed pumpkin can help with loose stool — just add a spoonful to your dog's meals.
