The Doctors: Peanut Butter Ingredient Dangerous To Dogs
The Doctors were joined by veterinarian Courtney Campbell, who explained that there’s a particular treat that pet owners give to their pets regularly, not knowing it could potentially kill them. Dr Campbell explained that they were talking about peanut butter, but began by saying that by itself, peanut butter is completely safe. The reason it’s been considered dangerous lately, is because there’s an ingredient in certain types of peanut butter called xylitol.
Xylitol is usually found in gum as a sweetener. It can cause a dog’s blood pressure to drop drastically. Low-fat cream cheese or small amounts of cheese is much better for your dog. If you want to give your dog peanut butter, just be sure to check your ingredient list first and keep in mind that the higher up on the list xylitol is, the more there is in the peanut butter.
