...you decide making peanut
butter for dogs is a wise choice before adding it to your pal's
favorite homemade dog treat.
If you don't have time, knowing which type to buy is your next best choice. Furthermore, learn about your furry pal's wild ancestors' diet. Then you'll...
... accept the fact that peanut butter (and most other doggie treats) are a people food.
Dog treats can be safely consumed by your furry pal if fed in moderation!
It's hard to cut Nimble off while she's begging for more peanut butter dog treats with those big eyes!
Following this regimen makes me feel comfortable about dogs eating peanut butter...
Use raw, organic peanuts in the shell. The shell protects them from going rancid. I'll admit, it gets old shelling them! Sometimes I don't... Nimble says I'm getting lazy while making her peanut butter dog treats!
If the peanuts are roasted, make sure you follow Nimble's dog tooth cleaning routine. Foods that are not raw tend to stick to your dog's teeth.
If they're shelled, try to buy refrigerated peanuts... it keeps them from going sour.
Our companions' digestive systems are designed for a canine diet (barf dog food diet). The biggest portion of a wolf's diet is prey animals. When consumed, the bones, meat and stomach contents of the prey animal should be considered when feeding your dog.
Wild dogs are opportunistic... they will eat other items when the opportunity presents itself. These include, but are not limited to...
My brother observed Mamma Coyote teaching her pups how to catch crickets on a ranch in eastern Oregon. As she turned over the “cow flops,” crickets hiding underneath them would jump up. Eventually her pups caught on!
I need to remind
myself of these best all natural dog food menus. Then, I'll think
twice before I give Nimble “just one more” peanut butter dog
treat! This also applies to yogurt dog treats... please read this before you go shopping.
I read an article on the internet that said meat is a people food, don't feed it to your dog! You're kidding me!...
It's no wonder we're confused! I know we're not talking peanut butter for dogs here, but that's not my point.
I'm disappointed with all the misleading “best dog food to buy” information online and in books. I'm angry because tons of dog parents are “fed” this stuff (and their dogs)!
What are safe dog foods? Numerous opinions are formed from scientific data or copying another author's content. Some of this dog food stuff is spot on... don't misunderstand me!
...some don't know any better (or do, they just don't want to admit it... this would affect their financial interest). They haven't been there or done that. Lining their pockets with dollars, not your pooch's health, is their only concern!
“Sometimes my daddy needs to blow off steam... arf!”
Organic peanut butter for dogs will be free of gmo's and irradiation. Furthermore, unhealthy dog food ingredients you can't pronounce or those containing numbers, as well as unhealthy preservatives will be left out.
Healthier versions (the lessor of two evils) of salt, preservatives and sugar may still be included.
Also give this a shot... human grade dog vittles!
Please read our
following safe healthy dog food pages when you and your doggy have
time. They will help you realize peanut butter and other people
treats should be fed in moderation.
Maybe your dog is allergic to peanut butter. If you're not sure about feeding your dog peanut butter, please contact your veterinarian. My intent is not replace excellent veterinary care. I'm only sharing our dog food experiences so you can make an informed “peanut butter” decision.
Did your doggy throw up her peanut butter after feeding it for the first time? Don't worry... she'll probably be ok. A dog throwing up undigested food can be caused by feeding something new to your dog. Or... it might be something else. Click here to find out more.
I had a little doggie named Gidget before Nimble. She ate a yummy, healthy dog food diet.... I never gave her any people food treats.
This wasn't hard because I also didn't eat people food treats (they weren't hang'in around the house).
Then I started thinking about how healthy our diet is. “We” decided that an occasional peanut butter (or other) treat would be ok...
...if we knew what was in 'em and didn't over indulge! Tap here to check out Nimble's yummy yogurt dog snack!
Oops... I almost forgot... Nimble reminded me that peanuts are actually a legume... not a nut!
