Can Dogs Eat Peanut Butter?

Peanut Butter is one of the best things to feed a dog, unless it contains an ingredient called xylitol. However, most of the peanut butter that’s in your home cupboard is unlikely to contain this ingredient.

Peanut butter such as Jiffy (the most popular brand of peanut butter) do not contain xylitol.

So, the short answer is Yes.

Recommended Usage of Peanut Butter

My wife and I give our puppy a Kong Dispenser filled with peanut butter, frozen. This gives the dog more time to enjoy the snack, and is especially nice in hot climates.

Nutritional Value of Peanut Butter for Dogs

Peanut Butter is a nice source of protein, however many brands include ample amounts of sugar. It is recommended, but not required, to feed your dog sugar-free peanut butter, such as Smooth Operator Peanut Butter. However, this Jiffy 2-Pack of creamy peanut butter will also do.
