Peanut butter a good condiment for spread to your sandwiches and toast. Who doesn’t love peanut butter? Some people even mix this with Bananas for a delicious sandwich afternoon treat! But, do you know that this could be a good treat for your dogs as well?
The Peanut Butter and Your Dog
Peanut Butter, a typical food spread or paste that is usually paired with sandwiches and toast. It purely consists of nuts ground roasted dry peanuts with added salt, sweetness, and emulsifiers. It does give you a palatable taste, but it also serves a special kind of snack with other food combinations. But the good thing about it is that you’re not the only one who can enjoy this spread. Luckily, your dog can also have this wonderful treat!
Regular Peanut butter is certainly a safe food for your dogs (with certain limitations). It contains vitamin B and vitamin E, healthy fats, and protein that could help your dog’s body system. However, remember not to give to many servings to your dog; anything too much is bad for them. Keep in mind also not to let them have peanut butter with xylitol. This kind of element is a toxic one for your little buddy.
Xylitol is a powerful insulin stimulator released to dogs that could cause a drop in your little companion’s sugar. Usually, this kind of content is placed in peanut butter as a common sugar-replacement. Additionally, you might see this ingredient cited in all peanut butter as an “All-natural ingredient”. But you have to beware; Xylitol content is certainly fine for humans to take but not for your dogs.
So, the next time that you go through a market and find out that peanut butter has a Xylitol ingredient, better not to buy or else, you would risk your dog’s life. If you find this piece helpful, please make yourself at home.
