Puppy Pumpkin Soup!

This year has been FREEZING in the city so it is time to whip up some pumpkin soup for the pups!


  • 1 C pumpkin puree
  • 1 Tsp bone broth (Natures Diet Pet Bone Broth Protein Powder)
  • 1 C water
  • 1 Tsp Fresh ginger
  • Cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • Pumpkin seeds for garnish

What to do:

  1. In a blender add your pumpkin, bone broth powder, cinnamon, ginger, olive oil, water and a pinch of cinnamon.
  2. Once fully blended move over to a sauce pan and warm up.
  3. When it gets to a warm temperature, place it in your pups bowl and add crushed unseasoned peeled pumpkin seeds and a pinch of cinnamon.

It is a very simple recipe but very beneficial.

Bone Broth-

  • Bone broth is rich in collagen and amino acids.
  • It is known to benefit joints and digestive issues as well as other things.
  • Its best if it is home made but if you cant, check the label to make sure their are no ingredients that are NOT dog friendly.


  • Cinnamon contains antioxidants that fight disease throughout the body.
  • It’s also good for joints and muscle soreness, regulating blood sugar, and fighting yeast infections.

Olive Oil-

  • Contains phytonutrients, vitamin E, and omega fatty acids.
  • It helps keeps your dogs skin moisturized and well moisturized.


  • Pumpkin is a great source of antioxidants including beta-carotene and zeaxanthin compounds.
  • It is also a great source of fiber.
  • Contains minerals such as potassium, copper, manganese, iron, magnesium, and phosphorus; vitamins A, C, B, E, and enzymes.


  • Fresh ginger in small quantities can be beneficial.
  • It contains antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties that can promote healthy blood circulation, ease bloating, and increase heart health.

Pumpkin Seeds

  • Pumpkin seeds are a popular remedy for intestinal parasite, especially tapeworm.

I like to make this for the pups because it get’s cold in San Francisco and I know I enjoy something warm on a cold day because it warms me from the inside out so I figured they would love something warm too.
