homemade peanut butter dog treats are safe

First, let’s demystify the story of peanut butter being a toxic food for dogs. Peanut butter can actually provide our four-legged friends with healthy fats, vitamins B and E and niacin – and they’ll all increase their love towards you, for sure! Having said that, peanut butter is safe for dogs only as long as it does not include xylitol. So if the jar you’ve just bought contains this ingredient, just leave it on the shelf, and look for unsalted homemade peanut butter to use on these recipes instead – it won’t be harmful for your pet, and is even free of sugar and additives! πŸ―
