Tess has developed a taste for peanuts ( ready salted )..Am I doing wrong by giving her a few?

Suppose dogs are like humans and can have a nut allergy. I make my dogs and my friends dogs peanut butter cookies for a rare treat. None of the dogs been harmed by them.

I wouldn’t give the ready salted as they seem to be very very salty.

I sure hoe not mine has been getting two teaspoons a day for several years now. I use it to hide her medication in. she loves peanuts and it is one of the only foods she doesn't just woof down, but puts in the back of her mouth and truly chews up.

I would wash off the salt or get her unsalted peanuts. Too much salt is not too good of an idea for little doggies.

A couple here and there wouldn't be bad.

Peanuts are a dog favourite... :lol: Unsalted would be better if you give lots, but a few a day won't be an issue. Peanut butter is a BIG favourite for many dogs! :D
