The Importance of Annual Exams for Continuing Medications

Important Warning about Peanut Butter and Dogs:

Do you give your dog peanut butter as a treat?

Xylitol, a sweetener sometimes added to candy and snacks, is known to cause liver damage and dangerously lowers blood sugar in dogs. It is now also found in several peanut and nut butter brands. Something to check is whether the packaging says "sweetened naturally" or that it uses a "natural sweetener." Xylitol IS is found in small amounts in fruits and vegetables but it is still dangerous for dogs. Look for xylitol or sugar alcohols being listed in the product ingredients.
