Health Benefits of Peanut Butter for Dogs

Posted on

We love to spoil our dogs with people food, but the fact is that dog food is the safest and healthiest form of nutrition for your pet. Some human foods are unhealthy or downright unsafe for dogs as they are higher in sugar, toxins, chemicals, and salt – all of which can lead to obesity and serious health problems in dogs. But thankfully for our happy hounds, peanut butter is not one of these foods.

Peanut butter can provide dogs with some of the vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants that are scarce in certain dog foods. Treating your pup with The Lazy Dog Cookie Co.’s Yippy Peanut Butter Biscuits adds Vitamin E (necessary for proper immune system function) and Vitamin B (very important for a shiny, healthy skin and coat) to their diet. It is also a wonderful source of essential heart-healthy fats and protein to give your dog energy.

Peanut butter is most healthy for your canine friend when it is organic and raw, void of sugars, salt, and preservatives. Like any other foods, too much peanut butter may not be healthy for your dog…over indulging can cause weight gain or gastrointestinal issues. At The Lazy Dog Cookie Co. we are not only dedicated to baking delicious cookies your dog will love, but are totally committed to cooking up only the best, natural, and nutritious treats, free of wheat, corn, soy, meat products, egg, dairy, salt, sugar and preservatives.

Puppy peanut butter tip: Can’t get your dog to take their medicine? Cover the pill in a small amount of peanut butter deliciousness and your dog will just think they’re being spoiled.
