Begables Pumpkin Pineapple treats were born out of a need to reduce or completely stop Coprophagia (the eating of poop). Yes, a gross subject but unfortunately this is a problem for many pet parents. While these treats were made for this specific purpose, they have become very popular because the dogs simply love them!
How do Pumpkin Pineapple treats help with Coprophagia? Well, the acidity of the pineapple when digested gives the dog’s poo a unpalatable (lol), bitter taste. 90% of the time this will stop your pup from their poop eating frenzy!
Beyond the Coprophagia, Pumpkin Pineapple treats have many other benefits as well! As with all of our dog treats these are made with a base ingredient of Garbanzo Beans. Garbanzos serve up protein (vital to all aspects of development, including the immune system), copper (necessary for producing and storing iron) and folate (crucial to DNA production, plus many other functions). And there’s more; garbanzos contain vitamin A to sustain eye health, the B-complex vitamins that provide a host of essential nutrients, and vitamin C’s antioxidants, which may prevent, or delay, cell damage. We call that a Superfood!
Pumpkin we add in because if your pup was eating poop (I won’t tell), their tummy may be giving them some problems. Pumpkin is wonderful for digestion! Pumpkins are choc-full of nutrients. They contain loads of vitamin A, respectable amounts of vitamin C, and good quantities of other enriching minerals like potassium. It’s also low fat and low calorie.
Pineapples are fruits rich in fiber, vitamins and minerals (most important of which are Vitamin C and Manganese), all of which will improve your dog’s health markers, immune system and overall digestion.

I have one pup that is having a hard time chewing these due to how hard they are, the other pup has no issues. I’m still waiting to see if they actually start to curb our pup that eats the others poop.
