The Boston Terrier in this video is savoring peanut butter. Her name is Penny. At first she seems uncertain about her Mom’s offer of a spoonful of peanut butter. Could this be her first experience? There seems to be different opinion about peanut butter. Recently I even learn that peanut butter made for dogs are available.
According to Nicole Pajer in Cesar’s Way, if you are feeding your dog peanut butter for humans, make sure that the peanut butter is raw and unsalted. And more importantly, Nicole emphasizes, NO artificial sweetener, no xylitol, no sugar-free or “lite” peanut butter. These substances are harmful to dogs, in fact, toxic, according to Nicole. So… raw and unsalted.
Healthy treats for dogs
Peanut butter is a favorite treat for dogs. It offers protein, healthy fats, vitamin B and E, and Niacin. If you stuff peanut inside a Kong, your dog will ignore the world for a good while. There are other human food that can be an occasional treat for our dogs. If you are ever in doubt whether a certain human food is safe or good for your dog, please check with your vet. Nicole includes other food we can give as a treat to our dogs. You can add a little cooked chicken to your dog’s regular food for extra protein. If you run out of dog food, this can be a meal replacement. Carrots are good for a dog’s teeth. They are high in fiber, low in calorie, and rich in Vitamin A and Beta Carotene. Cooked salmon makes our dog’s coat healthy and shiny, and is great for her immune system. Besides cooked salmon, you can add salmon oil to her food bowl, or give her the fish skin. Pumpkin can help with digestive issues. Also keeps the GI tract moving. You can read about other human food that are dog approved here.
