Fall is a time for goodies, but don't deceive your pets with unhealthy food.
According to Watkins, pumpkin seeds are completely useless to a dog's diet.
Watkins disputes the traditional wives' tale that pumpkin seeds deworm dogs.
To treat worms in your pet, visit the vet and acquire a de-wormer.
Watkins says pumpkin seeds are safe for dogs to eat. Not that they should consume them either.
Watkins believes the shells of pumpkin seeds are difficult for dogs to break down.
If your dog consumes too many seeds, it may cause stomach distress, constipation, or diarrhea, but in moderation, it's fine.
