Can my Puppy have Peanut Butter?
It is safe to give your puppy this peanut butter from 6 weeks of age in tiny quantities. Your puppy will have weaned on to solid food at this stage. Start by introducing the butter in tiny amounts by allowing them to lick it from your finger. As your puppy develops you can increase the quantity that you give them.
