Healthy fats are not only an important part of your pets diet but can also be beneficial for pets who suffer from itchy, dry or irritated skin. Although we do not recommend peanut butter being apart of your pets daily diet we do recommend it once a week to ensure they are getting some healthy fats in.
Vitamin B3 for Dogs
Are you giving your pet Vitamin B3? Or have any idea on what it is and how it is beneficial for your pet?
