Can Pets Eat Squash?

Squash offers great nutritional value for cats and dogs. Summer squash (zucchini, crookneck) are low-calorie and a good source of calcium, potassium and beta-carotene. Winter squash (butternut, spaghetti, acorn) are a great source of vitamins A and C and dietary fiber. Fiber can help relieve constipation and diarrhea by helping to regulate the natural wave action of the intestines. A small amount of pureed pumpkin or butternut squash can provide valuable nutrients and help your pet feel more satiated.
