Pumpkin Smoothies for your Dogs and Cats

During this holiday season, while your guests sip cocktails, dogs and cats can wet their whistles with this creamy pumpkin drink that’s packed with fiber and digestion-friendly probiotics.

Bonus: freezes well for longer-lasting licking!


  • ½ c. canned pumpkin puree
  • ½ c. plain non-fat yogurt


  1. Place pumpkin and yogurt in a blender and blend on high until smooth.
  2. Evenly pour mixture into 8 small paper cups. Either refrigerate or freeze overnight, or serve right away.

Calories per smoothie: 13

Why we love it:  Pumpkin is packed with fiber and vitamin A and can help soothe upset stomachs.

TIP: If there are fewer than eight paw-footed Pilgrims at your party, freeze the rest for a Black Friday treat!

Petplan’s veterinarians carefully concocted each recipe so pet parents can rest assured they’re offering a safe alternative to table handouts. That way furry friends can be included in the festivities — after all, they have a lot to be thankful for, too.
