I wonder if it was a canine who declared January 24th as National Peanut Butter Day? Anyone who shares their home with a four legged canine family member knows just how much they absolutely love this gooey golden brown blend of deliciousness.
Peanut butter is a popular treat among tail-waggers. Filling a Kong with frozen peanut butter can often keep a dog busy for quite a while. It’s also a great training treat.
Can’t get that stubborn pooch to take their medication? Try smearing some peanut butter on the pill or capsule.
Peanut butter is also an excellent source of protein, containing heart healthy fats and important vitamins. However, this food should be fed in moderation and to healthy dogs.
Always check the ingredients in the peanut butter you are feeding your canine. Xylitol, an artificial sweetener sometimes found in peanut butter, can be toxic to dogs.
