More Pumpkin Seeds Please
If you’re a vegan or vegetarian, you’ll know all about the benefits of Pumpkin Seeds. Rich in vitamins and minerals, they’re packed full of antioxidants and a great source of plant-based protein.
The thing is though, Pumpkin Seeds are good for dogs too. They’re gluten-free, high in unsaturated fats, excellent for keeping cholesterol in check and benefit the heart as well.

Pumpkin Seeds for dogs are an excellent source of all manner of lovely things such as thiamine, niacin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid and folate, aka naturally occurring folic acid. And that’s without mentioning their calcium, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, iron and zinc, or their omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids.
Get the picture? Pumpkin Seeds are kind of like the Richard Gere of edible seeds. Lovely and lovely and lovely all over!
Pumpkin Seeds are particularly beneficial for older dogs whose digestive system isn’t quite what it once was. And for centuries they’ve been used by North America’s native tribes as a natural and safe dewormer, particularly beneficial they say for dealing with pesky tapeworms and other intestinal nasties.
Pumpkin Seeds are of the planet’s richest sources of magnesium. Magnesium is important in maintaining healthy bones, reducing the risk of heart disease and regulating blood pressure and blood sugar levels. That makes them beneficial for any dog suffering from hypertension or diabetes. And they’re good for urinary health and good for the heart. Topping all that their richness in fatty acids can help with age-related degenerative issues such as canine arthritis and joint problems.
So there’s every good reason why Pumpkin Seeds should form part of your dog’s diet. I do recommend you grind them first though. Certainly don’t feed raw seeds direct from the fruit as they can be a choking hazard, particularly for small dogs. Better to do as I do and buy shelled Pumpkin Seeds and grind them in a coffee grinder. Then sprinkle them onto your dog’s food or add them whole to other ingredients when home cooking for your dog.
Better still, Pumpkin Seeds form part of my Dog Chef Daily. My very own plant-based daily superfood supplement for dogs that I developed some years ago in order to future-proof the health of my own dogs. That will give your dog Pumpkin Seeds and more besides.
