Frequently Asked Questions
Can dogs eat peanut butter?
Dogs can eat peanut butter, but it should be 100% free from xylitol and as with any treat, it should be given in moderation. Look for peanut butters made with limited ingredients that are safe for dogs, or avoid stressing over ingredients by getting a peanut butter made especially for canines. Chewy carries a range of tasty peanut butters made specifically for dogs to take the worry out of treating your pup. Always consult your vet about giving your dog new food or snacks and be sure to seek guidance on appropriate quantities, too.
Which peanut butter is good for dogs?
Peanut butter formulated especially for dogs is often the best and safest choice, and all the dog peanut butters Chewy carries are completely safe for pups. Peanut butters made for humans can be good for dogs, too—just look for natural or homemade varieties with no sugar or salt added, and take extra care to ensure they don’t contain xylitol, which is highly toxic for dogs.
How much peanut butter do I give my dog?
Give your dog no more than 1 or 2 spreads of peanut butter to lick, and use even less if you have a small breed dog. You can use peanut butter to fill treat toys like the famous KONG toys. You’ll find a little peanut butter goes a long way, especially if you make your pup work for it by putting it in a fun and challenging toy.
