Make your treats in suitable sizes
Before you bake your spooky doggo treats, think about the size of the treats you’re making. Make sure there is no risk of a choking hazard.
Peanut butter cautions with dogs
Although many dogs love peanut butter, we recommend you be cautious when it comes to which type of peanut butter you feed them. For example, avoid peanut butter high in salt or sugar
What is xylitol and why can’t dogs eat it?
Xylitol can be extremely dangerous for dogs to ingest. If your dog has eaten something containing xylitol, call your vet straight away and have your dog seen.
Xylitol is an artificial sweetener. It’s also known as E967. So, in other words, it’s an E number.
