Yes. And dogs love it! Peanut butter is packed with protein and contains healthy fats, niacin, vitamin B, and vitamin E. But a word of caution: only share peanut butter that’s raw, unsalted, and free of artificial sugars. (Xylitol, in particular, is toxic to dogs, and it can show up in sugar-free peanut butters.)
- Stuff a spoonful of peanut butter in a KONG toy for a delicious project that will keep your dog busy for a good while.
- Offer a few slurps of peanut butter as an occasional treat.
- Use peanut butter to disguise medication your dog isn’t jazzed about ingesting.
- Try making DIY dog treats with peanut butter—it’s easier than you might think.
