Heart Peanut butter??

I'm getting conflicting reports from different websites about whether or not to feed her peanut butter. I gave her a little tiny taste the other day and she loved it.

Also, how does the Kong work exactly? I have so much stuff on my wish list on Amazon for her...more than for myself now..LOL

I feed my two PB.

You do have to make sure to only give them a little bit - too much can cause pancreatitis.

I give Grace about 1 tsp.

I use it to mix her medicine in.

But for a KONG you can rub it along the inside with your finger and let her lick it out

Leila hasn't tasted peanut butter yet. But speaking of Kongs, has anyone tried the cheese stuff made by them that comes on a can like Cheese Wiz and if so, what do you think of it? My husband bought some and I've let Leila have some twice in her Kong to keep her entertained and calm while she's recovering from surgery and she loves it! I'm just wondering if it's ok to let her have it anymore.

Peanut Butter is okay in small amounts at a time. Like Tori said just rub a little inside the Kong and let her get it out.....it keeps them busy for a while.

If Tiffany needs to take medicine, I give it to her in a little bit of peanut butter. She loves it.

You can also put your dog's food in the kong, spread some peanut butter over the end, and freeze it. Then they have to lick through the frozen peanut butter to get to the food.

For years we've used the "squirty cheese" (Kraft Easy Cheese; Cheddar and Bacon is their favorite) out of a can to give the dogs their monthly heartworm tablets (currently Trifexis). We squirt the cheese all over the pill and they go nutz for it and can't get the pill down fast enough. But they only get it once a month. I don't think a steady diet of very much of it would be very good since it's rather a "junk food" type of cheese with 430 mgs of sodium "per serving". That's a lot of salt.

I will have to check the can to see how much sodium is in this stuff. Since it is made for dogs, I can't see them adding sodium but you never know. No, I wouldn't give it to her regularly, but just a tiny bit as an occasional treat.

Ah, I didn't know yours was a doggie version. It might be fine then. It's the people version that isn't very healthy. Ironic, isn't it!?

Mine love PB but only get a tiny by each month with their heart worm meds. It's the only way I can get the meds down them.

No peanut butter from me it is just too messy. I always filled my Kong with dry food and Rylee would toss it around and around until the food spilled out. Once in a while she would use her tongue to try and lick it out. The times when she could not get all the treats out I would have to go and pry it loose. This did not happen often.
