Peanut butter is quite commonly used in homemade dog treats, and can make a delicious snack! Some brands of peanut butter use xylitol as an artificial sweetener, so make sure to check the ingredients before using these products in your dog’s diet.
Xylitol can cause low blood glucose and, in severe cases, liver damage in dogs. The prognosis is often good if treatment is started promptly.
If you suspect xylitol toxicity, call us anytime on 02073 055 055 for treatment advice.
Owners can call our Animal PoisonLine on 01202 50 90 00.
