Default Peanut Butter, Yogurt, Cream Cheese

Hey guys. So I was at the pet store and they tried selling me tubes of peanut butter, yogurt and cream cheese to put in my puppies kong, freeze, and let him lick at it to sooth his gums.

So I read the ingredient list on the peanut butter flavor one, and it's pretty much the same as every day peanut butter, except $7.00 a tube lol. As for the yogurt and cream cheese tubes, I didn't read the ingredients because I was too busy facepalming at the peanut butter tube.

With that being said, can I freeze yogurt in my kong for puppy, if so, what flavor? Is peanut butter a better option?

I would just use peanut butter you have at home or yogurt...why waste the money on their creation of peanut butter & yogurt?

I freeze yogurt & give as treats in a tiny glass bowel...plain yogurt with sardines & he's HAPPY!

Peanut butter is fine frozen in a kong. With any yogurt I watch the sugar content...mine gets plain greek yogurt as well.

Too much peanut butter can give diarrhea. I prefer PLAIN, SUGAR-FREE, UNFLAVORED yogurt. No artificial colors, flavors, or sweeteners.

If feeding yogurt or cottage cheese daily does it matter if it's fat free or not. Will they get the same benefit from 2 Tsp. daily.

Can I cream together some plain greek yogurt and peanut butter maybe? Just so the yogurt is naturally sweet from the peanut butter and freeze it in combination or just give one or the other?

I like the plain, fat-free Greek yogurt.

Ok! I'm going to pick up both at the store, since I can always munch on one or the other myself and freeze one of them in the kong. Anything to sooth my little demon's gums.

For soothing gums...frozen carrots are great. I did this with mine. Someone else in a another thread mentioned a wet clean rag that's frozen...also a good idea.

Like Emoore said...watch the peanut butter...maybe a tablespoon or two.

I use the sodium and sugar free peanut butter for both myself and the pup. She also loves plain yogurt. It is tasty enough to them without being "sweet"
