Are your pets’ treats toxic?

by Twila Beasley on March 21, 2017

It’s no secret that dogs and some cats love the creamy taste of peanut butter. It makes a good snack when their are behaving well, keeps them occupied when a Kong is involved and makes it easier for pet parents to administer medication. Peanut butter just makes life so much easier when you’re a pet parent, but if you’re feeding your fur kid store bought peanut butter you may be doing more harm then good!

Store bought peanut butter

Store bought peanut butter contains a lot of harmful ingredients for your pets mainly because it isn’t meant for pet consumption. Sugar and salt is very bad for your pet but it’s more serious then you think.

Sugar (xylitol) causes:

  • hypoglycemia
  • liver problems
  • Cats are susceptible to xylitol poisoning
  • death

Salt is extremely poisonous to pets & causes:

  • vomiting
  • diarrhea
  • lethargy
  • excessive thirst or urination
  • kidney damage
  • seizures
  • coma
  • death

Even with big box pet specialty stores you have to be very careful and make sure to read the ingredients and fine print. I’ve personally experienced shopping at a big box pet specialty store and picked up a box of peanut butter flavor dog treats, then realized that peanuts or peanut butter was not an ingredient listed. My first thought was, well what is it? I quickly learned that there is a big difference between peanut butter and peanut butter flavor. But no worries there is an healthier option.

 

Locally-made Organic PB

After discovering that there aren’t a lot of  pet-friendly peanut butter out on the market my partner Chris &  I decided to make our own. I’m a natural born cook/baker so it came  easy to me and fun to do. I only use fresh natural ingredients from Whole Foods. My spreads contains organic unsalted nuts, peanut oil, and honey, that’s it!  Our spread comes in an 8oz jar for $8 and ships in the U.S. via UPS. At NOLAs Finest Pet Care we also have organic peanut butter bone & heart shape treats. All of our customers love that they can have a healthy option for their pets and support a local business at the same time. We love that each day our gourmet treats bring a happy tail wag or purr to America’s fur kids.
