Pumpkin spice pup-cup recipe

Treat your pup to an autumnal treat that'll spice up their life

Photo of some pumpkin spiced pup-cups, one in a small yellow cup and a larger one in an orange cup. Autumn leaves in red, orange and yellow and small pumpkins, decorate the table.

With Autumn well in season and Howl-oween just on the way, there is no reason why our dogs can't join in the festivities, and this recipe will definitely get them in the spirit.

And remember...

Sometimes low-fat foods contain sweeteners that can be dangerous to dogs. Make sure the ingredients you use do not contain Xylitol. 

Some dogs could have sensitivities to the ingredients, so these might not be suitable for all pooches. If you’re concerned about giving your dog new foods speak to your vet.
