We are so excited to be able to offer our own brand of peanut butter
Our favourite peanut butter treats for dogs have been made using responsibly sources peanut butter with no xylitol or palm oil in it, but now we will be using our own brand of peanut butter!
Why is it so important to use peanut butter with no xylitol or palm oil? Read on to find out:
Xylitol toxicity in dogs can be life-threatening and can be found in some peanut butter brands. This sugar substitute affects humans and dogs differently. Although xylitol doesn’t cause an insulin release in humans, it can in dogs. The release of insulin is so rapid, in fact, it causes a quick and dramatic drop in blood sugar levels, known as hypoglycemia. After ingesting xylitol, symptoms may develop within 15 to 30 minutes or may take as long as 12 to 18 hours to appear, depending on the product and amount ingested
While palm oil is not widely known to be poisonous to dogs, it does have a laxative effect and, if eaten, can cause sickness, diarrhoea, dehydration and, in extreme cases, pancreatitis. It can also cause blockages in the gut due to its semi-solid state. Some dogs have become seriously ill after ingesting palm oil. Much of the risk from palm oil is thought to derive from other toxic products mixed in it.
