“Peanut butter provides a sense of comfort to many of us and over the past few years Americans have been consuming peanuts at record high levels,” said Lauren Highfill Williams, National Peanut Board Director of Communications. “This National Dog Day we wanted to give pet owners a fun way to celebrate with their dogs by creating the first-ever peanut butter snacks that are dog-safe and delicious for people and pups.”
Please always seek the advice of veterinarians with any questions regarding the nutritional needs of dogs. Ingredients that should not be consumed by dogs are noted. Do not feed these treats as more than 10% of the dog’s diet. These are not complete foods and should be enjoyed only as a celebratory treat and are not meant to replace the dog’s daily diet.
Substitutions are not recommended. Avoid using peanut butter with Xylitol, a sugar substitute that is toxic to dogs.
