Customer Question

I read on line today that dogs shouldn't be given peanut butter. I have a three year old Goldendoodle, I've given her peanut butter many times, what is the risk of keeping this up. She doesn't seem to have any adverse effects.

Hi this is DRB and I would be happy to assist you with this.....low fat peanut butter is not a problem occasionally in small amounts as long as your dog does not have a food allergy. The problem can be using regular fat level peanut butter in large amounts can cause pancreatitis in some dogs that are given a lot of fatty food items in their diet. I hope this helps you. So in summary low fat peanut butter in small amounts should not be a problem for your dog. Let me know if you have additional questions. Sincerely, DRB
