Almond butter kong

Hi everyone,
Any thoughts or experience on using almond butter in the kong instead of peanut butter? Upset stomaches? Diarrhea? Good for puppies?
Thanks!

I wouldn't use either. Try canned pumpkin, but make sure to get the 100% pure pumpkin and not the pie mix with sugar added. Canned dog food and yogurt also work. If you get yogurt, make sure to get the unflavored stuff with no added sugar.

Almonds aren't digested particularly well by dogs, so I'd avoid them. I use peanut butter, but not really a lot at once, maybe a tablespoon. For a puppy (especially while housetraining) I would use something much lower in fat than peanut butter, like the pumpkin or yogurt mentioned above, or baked and mashed-up sweet potato.

plain yogurt, your dog wont know the difference between brands. Freeze it for yogurt. I also stuff meat like a hotdog or ground beef into it.

instead of almond butter and p-nut butter use something that's
more organic or natural.
