Possible peanut butter issues

Was at my vet and saw a sign that said some peanut butter manufacturers are switching their sweetener to a non-sugar substitute that can can cause hypoglycemia in dogs and can be very dangerous if not treated quickly

However, this is as easy as checking the ingredients for Xylitol

Can Dogs Eat Peanut Butter? - American Kennel Club

I understand this may be not so recent news, but thought it would help for someone who may not have even thought about it... like me

Thank you for posting this. I think it was an excellent idea!

There are SO many food items, as well as sugar-free candy and sugar-free gum that contain xylitol now. How many of us carry a pack of breath freshening mints or gum in our purses or maybe even tucked into that cubbyhole in the dash of our vehicle, so it's quick and easy to grab?

Kind of scary to think about how quickly our pups could get ahold of it...

Oh, we had a "Peanut butter" warning some time ago! To keep it simple no artificial sugars!! You gotta read the labels! A good option is the "All Natural Peanut Butter" but best to sit the jar on a counter before opening! The stuff is a liquid at room temperature, you have to stir it??? I was surprised ... that was a messy clean up.

Yeah, it is a mess. I walk around the house shaking the jar until my arm hurts. Then I store it in the fridge upside down. That helps with the oil mess, usually.

Store it in the firdge upside down??? Thanks for the tip.

We got giant jars at Costco in the summer. And I at home I was holding it as I forced the lid open and it tipped upon opening and the stuff wen everywhere??? Apparently Marilyn had seen All Natural Peanut Butter before, me not so much??? Wiping it up off the floor ... did make the floors look great but the floor was kinda slippery for a few days, so not a recommended approach for opening the jar. The stuff was like soup ... who knew???

Is Sitka the only dog in the world who doesn't like peanut butter?!
