Think peanut butter is safe for your pets, think again!

Peanut butter is a nice treat that you can give your pets.  You can stuff a Kong toy with it, put it on a celery stick, make your own peanut butter treats, and you can even hide pills in it to trick your pet to take their meds!  Dogs love it!  But beware!  There are some brands of peanut butter that contain xylitol, which is deadly to pets.  When you are purchasing peanut butter, make sure you READ THE INGREDIENTS.

Here is a very helpful article that contains some of the brands that contain Xylitol, the effects of when a dog ingests it, and what to do.  If you suspect your pet has had any xylitol, contact your vet and/or Pet Poison Control immediately.
