Default How much pumpkin for a 12 week pup

Puppy has pudding poo. Took a fecal sample in and it is negative. I missed the phone call my husband took it. Vet said to feed pumpkin. But he didn't ask how much... Arrgg! I found some canned 100% pumpkin in the baking section of the store. How much should I give him?

I would say a table spoon. At least that is what I have found effective.

I used to feed a lot of pumpkin when my girl sage had pudding poo. And it worked very well and she loved it. I'd say feed as much as your comfortable with. I mixed it with her kibble.

Do another stool sample. Parasites dont always show up in first one. Could be coccidia or Giardia. Hard to detect. Also give her digestive enzymes.

How can you tell if its pie mix? Ingredients say pumpkin. It doesn't say anything else added. But I did get it from baking section. Where else do I look for canned pumpkin?

you'll know pie mix. it's going to have sugar and all
sorts of additives and instructions. i see canned pumpkin
in water in the canned vegetable section of the store.
when you read the ingredients it should say pumpkin and water.
you can bake a pumpkin and use that.

Ingredients just say pumpkin. Nothing else. No sugar and additives not even water.

This is his second sample. He had one done at the rescue before he came home. He has been home 4 days now.

A tablespoon how often. Once a day? Twice a day?
