The Benefits of Organic Peanut Butter for Dogs: A Nutty Guide to Tastier Treats

Jan 26, 2023

Peanut butter 🥜 is a beloved treat for many dogs, and for good reason. Not only is it a delicious and easy way to give your dog a healthy dose of protein, but it also has many other benefits for their overall health and well-being.

However, not all peanut butter is created equal. That's why, at Afternoon Paws, we only use 100% organic peanut butter in our treats.

🌿 Organic peanut butter is made from peanuts that have been grown without the use of harmful pesticides or chemicals. These pesticides can be harmful to dogs, just as they are to humans, and can cause a range of health problems over time. Organic peanut butter is also free from genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and contains no artificial preservatives, colours, or flavours.

🐾 Organic peanut butter is also a great source of healthy fats, protein, and vitamin B-6. It also contains antioxidants and minerals such as magnesium, potassium and zinc. These nutrients can help to support your dog's overall health and well-being, including their skin, coat, and immune system.

❌ Another benefit of organic peanut butter is that it's free from xylitol, an artificial sweetener that can be fatal to dogs. Xylitol is commonly used in sugar-free products, but it's extremely toxic to dogs. Even small amounts can cause a rapid release of insulin, which can lead to hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) and liver failure. 

👩‍🍳 At Afternoon Paws, we believe in using only the best ingredients for our treats, and that's why we choose to use organic peanut butter. We're dedicated to creating fun, unique, wholesome treats using all-natural, high-quality ingredients, but also being kind to the planet in doing so.

🥜In conclusion, if you're looking for a healthy and safe treat for your dog, choose organic peanut butter. At Afternoon Paws, we're happy to use it in our delicious and healthy dog treats.

We hope you and your furry friend enjoy our treats as much as we enjoy making them! 🐶
