How to Bring Some Fall Flavors to Your Dog Food

You can feel it in the air – a change is coming. The leaves are changing color, the nights are getting crisper, and pumpkin spice has returned to the shelves. Fall is a beautiful time of year that gives both you and your dog a refreshing boost of energy. 

Most people with pets want to find a fun way to share the joy of the season with their furry friends. A great way to do that is to add some fall flavors to their food. Here are a few fantastic fall flavors that you can share with your pup.   

Best Dog Food Fall Flavors

The season of harvest brings a whole host of flavors with it each year. Many of which are great for both you and your pets. These different foods have nutritional benefits that help your pup live a healthier, happier life. 


Is fall really fall without pumpkin? While the merits of pumpkin spice are a hotly debated topic in many circles, no one can deny that the thought of fall brings to mind pumpkins. Pumpkin is a low-fat food that promotes good urinary tract health and is good for dogs’ digestive systems. Make some fun homemade pumpkin treats for your dog this fall.


A close second to pumpkin in favorite fall flavors are apples. Apple pie, apple cider, and all other apple-flavored foods are delicious. While your dog can’t have any of those foods, they can have some nice fresh apple slices or some homemade apple treats. Be sure to wash them well first to safeguard against the ingestion of pesticides. 


Add some festive flavor to your dog food meal plan with cranberries. These tart little treats are full of important things like antioxidants, vitamin C, and fiber. Fiber supports gut health, vitamin C supports immune health, and antioxidants support brain health. Antioxidants help fight oxidation and free radicals that can cause arthritis, kidney disease, cancer, and other issues within your dog’s body.

Lamb has an array of positive benefits for dogs. It’s an excellent source of protein, which is essential for supporting muscles and the immune system. Lamb is high in a more easily absorbed type of iron and has plenty of fatty acids. It also contains the zinc essential for keeping your dog’s immune system strong. It’s also just a great fall flavor to add to your food.

Turkey is a fall tradition. It’s a tasty, lean meat that helps your dog build muscle. Turkey is easy to digest and high in Riboflavin and Phosphorous which are important for supporting the digestive system. It’s also rich in amino acids and an array of B vitamins that support the nervous system and stabilize glucose levels in the blood.
