Happy National Peanut Butter Day
Did you know that you can treat your dog to peanut butter?
Here are a couple of ways:
1). You can stuff a kong toy with peanut butter and freeze it. Then when you leave the house, you can give them their kong or you can give it to them when they are in their crate to keep them busy. This will keep your dog happy!
2) Another good way to trick your dog to take medication is to put a pill or capsule in a wad of peanut butter and give it to him or her. Works like a charm!
What are the health benefits of Peanut Butter?
The health benefits of giving your dog peanut butter are amazing. “Not only is it a good source of protein, but it also contains heart-healthy fats, vitamin B, niacin, and vitamin E. The best peanut butter to feed your dog is raw and unsalted.”
In my opinion, raw and unsalted is best. You can purchase that at Publix Supermarket and or Whole Foods Market. But don’t overdo it. Also, be careful how much peanut butter you give to your dog, as he or she can gain weight.
However, a word to the wise on peanut butter. Make sure the peanut butter you choose does not contain xylitol. Xylitol can be fatal to dogs. Reading the label before purchasing is a must!
