Just a heads up

Post by rnor1120 » Sun Jul 19, 2015 5:35 pm

Just a heads up, they're starting to replace sugar in certain brands of peanut butter with the artificial sweetener Xylitol. Just a small amount of xylitol can cause profound hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) in dogs causing seizures and coma AND can cause liver failure. Check the label before giving your pup peanut butter!

Good call - thank you.

Also be careful of ice cream, flavoured yoghurt etc.
A dog is never bad or naughty - it is simply being a dog
