Default daily pumpkin?

I don't want to bug the vet again, so I'm asking y'all what you think...

Is there any harm in giving a dog a few tablespoons of canned pumpkin
daily, on a long-term basis? Roxy loves it so much that it's been a great
way for me to deliver her Proin to her without a struggle. It also makes
her poop easier to spot. G

If you don't mind the extra bulky stool there's no reason why not. Mine
get pumpkin on a regular (though not daily) basis.

No harm at all. It's commonly used as "filler" for dieting dogs, but
can be just a supplement in food.
