Things you should know about peanut butter

Almost all pup parents know how much our dogs love peanut butter.� It�s a favorite treat for most dogs. But is it healthy? We searched the internet in a quest to find more about the healthiness of this yummy treat.

So, is it safe?

Peanut butter is generally safe as long as it is given moderately. A teaspoon for small breed dogs (make sure with no chunks to avoid possible suffocation) and a table spoon for large breeds should be enough. It is a great source of protein, healthy fats and contains Vitamin B, niacin (good for the nervous system and skin) and Vitamin E. It also contains Omega 3 fatty acids which is good for reducing cholesterol levels.

When does it become unsafe?

There are some types of peanut butter in the market today that are unsafe for your dogs. Some peanut butter brands are including Xylitol as an ingredient. It is an artificial sweetener which is used to substitute sugar and is being produced for people who have diabetes and cannot consume sugar. Although Xylitol is safe for people but could be deadly for dogs. If consumed in low quantities your dogs may show signs of confusion and weakness. If consumed in larger quantities, it might destroy your dog�s liver cells and lead to death. On the other hand, peanut butter that does not contain Xylitol contains sugar. As you may or may not know. Too much sugar can hurt your dog. It could get them into a sugar high where they become extremely hyper and lack concentration and could lead to diabetes. When it comes to my dogs Lilly and Hoover, I barely feed them anything that contains sugar.   Conclusion: Please make sure to always read through the ingredients ahead as some ingredients might put your dog�s health at risk.   Sources: http://bit.ly/1HZicz1 http://bit.ly/1Bm5NyS http://bit.ly/2eDlBwJ
