Pumpkin spice latte (PSL) is undeniably a crowd favourite during fall and winter. It is one of Starbucks’ most popular seasonal beverages worldwide and it just landed in Starbucks Singapore last September.
Since Christmas is around the corner, wouldn’t it be nice if our dogs can enjoy a comforting cuppa pumpkin spice latte with us? It’s healthy and delicious. Well, their version that is – without all the sugar and cream.
Pumpkin is rich in fiber (Great for dogs with soft stools) and vitamins and minerals, such as vitamins A, C, and E, and iron. Cinnamon is reputed for its anti-inflammatory properties – beneficial for senior dogs with joint problems. It also helps prevent diabetes by regulating blood sugar. However, it’s not suitable for dogs with kidney issues.
