Why not almonds when peanut butter is okay?
It may seem pretty confusing. You may be asking yourself why your dog can eat peanut butter, but they cannot eat almonds. This is because peanuts are not technically a nut. They have different vitamins in them that are actually good for dogs.
There may be some other confusion as to why some fruits are okay when others are not, or why some vegetables are okay when others are not. Simply remember that different fruits and vegetables have different vitamins and other nutrients that can be either good or bad for your dog.
Better safe than sorry
When it comes to your dog’s health, it is always better to be safe than sorry. Use this guide to help keep your dog healthy to keep them around for a long time!
