I’m less jealous of the pumpkin and more of the fact that you have apparently a whole closet of unused storage somewhere in your house.

It was only $216. By buying it now, I saved over $300.

EDIT: I didn't expect this to get so much attention, so I'm going to hijack this comment to help answer questions: The pumpkin is for my dog. He had issues with impacted anal glands, so I began adding canned pumpkin to his diet to increase his fiber intake. It's worked wonderfully and means he no longer has discomfort. I chose to try this when my previous vet recommended I consider having his anal glands surgically removed. Why so many cans? They're hard to find a good portion of the year and are usaually more expensive so I bought a year's worth while they're available and cheap.

We used to feed our dog pumpkin for the same reason. We recently switched her to a type of blue Buffalo that has very high fiber content so we dont have to add pumpkin anymore.

u/[deleted] Nov 28 '22

Mind sharing which one?

u/kilgorettrout Nov 28 '22

Sure. I had tried to link to it before but was unable to find it on their website. It’s life protection formula, chicken and brown rice recipe. It has 10% fiber.

They make a dried pumpkin in powder form that is much easier to use, portion out and store. I am drawing a blank on the name but it's good stuff.

u/HIM_Darling Nov 28 '22

I bought a candy mold(I found the portions are better than using an ice cube mold). Fill it with pumpkin, freeze, then dump the portions into a big ziploc and keep in the freezer. Our dogs get a mix of dry and wet food and when I add the frozen pumpkin I pour a little hot water over the frozen pumpkin to melt it enough to mix in.

Just FYI blue Buffalo has been linked to heart failure and a lot of mysterious cases of organ shut down in dogs. It's one of the high avoid foods

12

u/[deleted] Nov 28 '22

The FDA report identified several brands, specifically the grain free formulations those brands offered. The entire line of pet food was not in question.

10

u/PM_Me_Your_Deviance Nov 28 '22

Here's an updated page: https://www.fda.gov/animal-veterinary/animal-health-literacy/questions-answers-fdas-work-potential-causes-non-hereditary-dcm-dogs

I find this interesting:

7. Is FDA planning to continue naming the brands most associated with cases?

No, we are not planning to update the commonly reported brands, as we are aware that several pet food companies have adjusted diet formulations since our initial announcements about DCM. We have asked pet food manufacturers to share diet formulation information, which could substantially benefit our understanding of the role of diet in these cases. We continue to encourage pet owners to discuss their animals' diets with their veterinarians.

My dogs don’t have this problem, but I also use Blue Buffalo and stuff their Kongs with a mix of meat and pumpkin, then freeze. The dogs love it! I love the 30 minutes of silence and the digestion benefits.

u/misschanandlerbong28 Nov 28 '22

Vet here. Blue Buffalo has been linked to a heart disease called dilated cardiomyopathy. However you can easily increase the fiber content of any food by adding 1-4 tsps of UNFLAVORED Metamucil (psyllium) powder to each meal.

u/holdonwhileipoop Nov 28 '22

I think it's a good idea to add psyllium and flax meal to their food. I started to make my own after too many commercial food recalls and scares.

u/imathrowawaylurkin Nov 28 '22

A family cat got kidney failure, vet said it could have been the Blue Buffalo she was fed. Vet said they changed the formulas recently and it's not a recommended food at all, anymore :/

17

u/[deleted] Nov 28 '22

As a vet, you should be more cautious about what you share. Blue Buffalo is just one of several brands that the FDA identified, and the report wasn't targeting the entire line of products, but specifically the grain free formulations these brands offer which have legumes or potatoes as the main ingredient. The specific product that was recommended here is not a grain free formulation.

I spent a horrible night cleaning up my poor dog and then the outdoor stairs of my 4th floor apartment after my dog got horrible diarrhea from vaccine shots. I curled up on the floor with her when I got done the cleaning. We also split them up now into 2-3 appointments and I give her Benadryl before the appointment. Not sure if that all works or she outgrew the sickness but we’ll always do it line that no matter what so she never goes though that again.

Nah man. IDK what OP does with his pumpkin but you can make so much stuff with it easily, and use it for your dog's constipation/diarrhea. I grow as many of the sweet pie pumpkins every years as I can, steam or roast it, and freeze the puree. The stuff is magic.

EDIT> I read further and see that is what OP does with his/hers - feeds it to the dogs.

I make two ingredient cupcakes, three ingredient crustless pumpkin pie, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin overnight oats .. well it's a fantastic ingredient that is good for you and OP got a banging deal!

20

u/OkSpecial4376 Nov 28 '22

My "three" ingredient pumpkin soup is veggie broth, pumpkin, and light cream. I also add fresh cracked pepper, cayenne, paprika, a dash of cinnamon, onion powder, and whatever spices im feeling. It's a really easy soup I would make whenever i was too tired/depressed/broke to make anything else. If I had it, I would top with cheese (grueye or white cheddar is divine) or sour cream.

I keep a couple cans around due to my dogs GI issues, this helps when he has flare ups. You’re right about the availability, they have good shelf life but I only need the small cans because it doesn’t take much and goes bad, but they only ever have the larger cans most of the year.

u/HIM_Darling Nov 28 '22

I bought a silicone candy mold so that whenever I open a can I can freeze the pumpkin into little portions and then pop them into a ziploc once they are frozen. Used to just try to keep the can in the fridge until we'd used it all, but it would go bad first. I just pour a little hot water over the frozen pumpkin and mix it into their food.

u/Redburned Nov 28 '22

Want to know something interesting? In the us, there doesn’t need to be any pumpkin product in those cans and they can still label them pumpkin. As long as it contains “golden-fleshed sweet squash”/pumpkin, or a mix of the two, they can call it pumpkin.

10

u/Byte_the_hand Nov 28 '22

Pumpkin and squash are close enough that you can interbreed them. We often planted squash and pumpkin too close together in the garden and came up with some interesting combinations. Had one that was the best tasting squash ever and we tried to see if the seeds would breed true, but they didn’t

And to get rid of a ton of squash, my mom would make “pumpkin” pie and we’d happily eat that. There is no way to tell the difference after it is spiced in a pumpkin pie.

7

u/UniquebutnotUnique Nov 28 '22

The name "pumpkin" is thrown around in three different squash species. Connecticut carving pumpkins are Cucurbita pepo. Atlantic giants are Cucurbita maxima. I think the Libby pumpkins are Cucurbita moschata. The amount of variation in one species of squash--especially pepo-- makes me feel that the distinction of the "golden fleshed sweet squash" is merited.

Pumpkin works wonders for dogs and their guts. It strange but it helps with both diarrhea and constipation. My dog has had some gland issues before, and it's so unpleasant (for both the dog and human alike. That's one of the least pleasant smells ever). I'm glad the pumpkin helps out. Do you just add it to dry food or do you do any other special dietary stuff?

This is such a great example of "things are cheaper if you're rich".

It's usually applied to things like being able to buy well made clothing etc. that lasts longer than 'fast fashion' but even here, a person who can afford to pay $200 at once, is saving 300 bucks, but someone who can only buy a few cans at a time, will be paying $500 over the year (or going without it).

I think clothes is a bad example. You can pretty easily buy clothing priced marginally higher than "fast fashion" articles, launder it as it instructs you too and it will last a lot longer. People just love buying new clothes and fast fashion is a way to accomplish that. So much waste is created by these people buying that crap. Let's not also forget the copious amount of sales and overstock outlets like clothing story factory outlets, TJ Maxx, and Marshalls where you can get mid/top tier product for the price of low-tier product. You may have to wait or not get exactly the piece of clothing you want, but you can get some pretty damn good stuff with some self-responsibility and self-control.

https://www.renolon.com/global-money-spent-on-clothing-statistics/

Average American spends $161/month on clothing (even higher for women). That is an absurdly high figure. I buy clothes once a year and alternate the season I buy for annually. Plus I use clothing for years at a time. I'm shopping at kohls, macy's, tj maxx, marshalls, factory outlets, etc.. Not getting anything fancy. Clothing addiction sucks, glad I don't have it.

I keep what I like/ fits and take the rest to charity.

Just hopping on the top comment to tell folks that if you decide to feed pumpkin to your pets, make sure it is just 100% pumpkin and not the “pumpkin pie” cans that have additional sugar/spices. They often look similar :)

P.S., pumpkin helped my kitten get healthy when I first got her. She was so little and underdeveloped and had liquid poops/colitis for weeks. Pumpkin helped her finally firm up her poops. I’ve never been so happy to see poop-shaped poop :)

He had consistent problems with impacted anal glands. It made a stinky mess and caused him discomfort. The pumpkin helps increase the fiber in his stool so that it better expels his anal glands when he defecates. It's worked wonderfully and a bonus is that it makes his droppings easier to clean up.

As soon as I saw this much pumpkin, I said "that's a man who owns a dog with a leaky ass." And goddamn was I 100%

You can't say stuff like "It's for my dog" without telling us about the dog.

So it’s good to put pumpkin mixed in with dog food, is it daily? My dogs never like their dry food plain so always looking for things good for them to mix in that isn’t from Petco for an overpriced topping. Hopefully you don’t live in my neighborhood so there is some left

I did it to increase his fiber intake, but he definitely likes it better. I mix it in with hot water like a little stew.

u/Working-Raspberry185 Nov 28 '22

Thanks! I will have to try this!

u/changefan Nov 28 '22

I'm just happy their Aldi marks stuff down. My Aldi could have Easter candy on the shelves right now and it'd be full price. We had canned pumpkin through the whole summer this year. Never went down.

u/numerousbullfrogs Nov 28 '22

My cat has DEMANDED a tablespoon of canned pumpkin daily ever since he had a stomach issue 9 months ago. There has been a shortage at my local stores. Now I know why.. You bastard!!

Oh man, my dog (RIP Penny, you were always a good girl) LOVED pumpkin, especially mixed up with a little bit of plain Greek yogurt.

u/NotChedco Nov 28 '22

u/CalmerThanYouAre_716 bought 168 cans of pumpkin. If his dog ate half a can a day except on Thursdays when his dog eats a whole can, how many days until u/CalmerThanYouAre_716 runs out of pumpkin. Show your work.

4

u/imonlybr16 Nov 28 '22

Ok so there's 7 days in a week, which means the dog is eating 4 cans a week (half + half = 1+ half+ half = 2 + half + half + 1= 4)

168/4 = 42 weeks worth or 294 days.

Canned pumpkin is my magic fix for dog digestive issues. Constipated? A little pumpkin will help things move along. Loose stool? A little pumpkin will firm things right up. Sensitive stomach? Pumpkin is an excellent bland food that stays down.

I buy pumpkin by the case from Aldis for my dog (s) too. I rescue dogs and all of them get a tablespoon per night. Unfortunately, it's seasonal at Aldi's so we start to horde it after Xmas. Works great to keep them regular.

u/No_Gap4679 Nov 28 '22

I found pumpkin, for the exact same reason… my dog, and bought 113 cans on sale, at $1.50/can. I bought them out.

My Chihuahua loves me for it.
