Peanut Butter Alternatives For Your Pet

Creamy or crunchy? We love peanut butter on an apple or in a PB and J sandwich, but it might not be the best treat for your dog.

Here's why: 

1.  Peanut butter is high in fat and calories which can lead to weight gain or a pancreatitis attack.
2.  It's high in sugar that feeds yeast overgrowth and bacterial infections.
3.  Some brands contain xylitol, a natural sweetener that is highly toxic to dogs. 

Peanut butter is commonly used to hide a pill. Instead, try making a canned food "meatball" for hiding pills. Visit for more pet nutrition tips to keep your cat or dog healthy and happy!
