I know dogs can eat peanut butter. The other day I was eating some unsalted shelled peanuts. I know dogs aren't suppose to have nuts, but can they eat peanuts? (not the shell of course)

💙💜💚💛❤️

I forgot how to put a pic in my signature. Please pm me if you can help. Thanks

many many years ago my boyfriend and i rescued a borzoi. nicki was a pisser, not only did she eat and unwrap all the chocolate our christmas tree ornaments but she used to stole and ate most of a 5lb bag of fresh roasted peanuts. they were on top of the mantel. we came home to neat piles of shells, she would lie on the floor and crack them open, eat them and spit out the shells! we blamed our roomate, until the day we found nicki on her real legs, standing tall taking the bag of peanuts down for a feast!

 

that dog was amazing, not only did she NOT get sick from all the chocolate she ate, the excessive amounts of peanuts, cleaning out the fridge(it was a model w/ a lever handle) but she survived distemper. when we found her, she was sick, undernourished and in critical condition. so, home she came, i reported the person who had her for sale chained in her garage and cancelled the check!

Loca used to steal and eat peanuts all the time, shells and all. She was always fine.

Peanuts are not related to other nuts. They are legumes, and more closely related to peas than to other nuts. Technically, peanuts are not nuts at all, so if a human is allergic to, say, pecans, he is less likely to be allergic to peanuts than to cashews.

 

As far as I know, if peanut butter is safe for dogs, whole peanuts are too. After all, peanut butter is nothing more than squished peanuts, with other additives.

I make peanut butter for myself and Dory. It's very simple. Just get plain peanuts and put them in a blender. After it gets pasty, add a little water/veggie oil. Voila! So much healthier than store-bought (if you're the natural kind of person) and it really only takes two minutes. I put the peanut butter in yogurt cups, freeze them for a little, and give them to Dory a few times each week (we're trying tot fatten her up).
