It’s September, which means the sweaters have been dusted off, the cosy candles are out, and Pumpkin Spice Lattes are back on the menu at your coffee shop of choice.
And to celebrate the snuggly season sweeping in, Pooch and Mutt have launched the CUTEST limited edition treats that are perfect for enjoying after a walk through the fallen leaves at your favourite woodland spot, or a trip to the pumpkin patch.
Hypoallergenic and puppy-friendly (from 12 weeks) it uses seasonal superfood pumpkin and a range of nutrient rich ingredients to make for a ‘warm hug’ of a reward for your dog.
It probably goes without saying that these treats don’t contain any coffee like the much-loved PSL drink, but they definitely give off ‘matchy’ vibes – so there’s nothing stopping you from ordering one for yourself!
Instead, the cute clover-shaped treats are made with 26 per cent chicken, as well as pumpkin, cinnamon, melon, collagen and, as with all of the probiotic meaty treats range, added probiotics for healthy digestion.
Low in calories, pumpkin is a brilliant veggie to add to your dog’s diet, as the potassium aids blood pressure regulation and metabolism. It can also support overall immune health, and encourage a healthy, glossy coat. Meanwhile, bringing the ‘spice’ is anti-inflammatory cinnamon, which can prove beneficial for dogs who suffer from arthritis. It can also act as a natural remedy for constipation, and is a fantastic antioxidant.
Collagen is a bit of a beauty buzzword in the skincare industry, but the natural supplement can also help pets maintain a healthy skin and coat. Although naturally occurring in both dogs and humans, it diminishes with age, but treats like the Pooch and Mutt Pumpkin Spice can help combat that – consider it an anti-aging cream for canines… kind of.
These treats are formulated with no added artificial flavours, colours or preservatives, with no grain, cereal, gluten, beef, soy, dairy and non-genetically modified produce, making them easier on the tummy too. Probiotics, which help balance the gut, help with this too. In fact, Pooch and Mutt say that a dog’s gut can in turn affect their mood. The brand explained: “The benefits of probiotics are vast reaching and are especially useful for anxious dogs. The gut-brain axis is the link between the gastrointestinal tract and the brain, and with a healthy gut microbiome affecting mood, it needs to be well supported to ensure a calm and happy dog.”
The new Pumpkin Spice dog treats are currently available on the Pooch and Mutt website, costing £8.99 for three packs – which is less than £3 a pack. We reckon that could last you right the way through until Christmas – or you can share them with your four-legged friends at the dog park, too.
We really like the idea of making a dog-friendly pumpkin spiced ‘latte’ and topping a vegan whipped cream with a Pumpkin Spice treat or two – stay tuned, because we may have a recipe incoming for just that!
You can also get £10 off on the Pooch and Mutt website when you spend £15 here.
