My little Angel has 2 Kong toys. I'm wondering if it's really ok to stuff it with peanut butter (as suggested by many), I thought we shouldn't feed dogs peanut, but then why is it ok to give them peanut butter?!

Just don't give it to them in great big glops as they tend to get very excited and end up with peanut butter mushed into their faces and it is NOT easy to shampoo peanut butter out of the hair of any little wiggle butt.

Or, this could be a problem only I have ever faced.

Just give her a finger first and see how her tummy tolerates it. If she likes it and can handle it, you can stuff her kong with it. I've found with the small kongs whatever I stuff tends not to get on their face because they smush their face hair back while eating it. Plain, organic, low fat yogurt or low fat cottage cheese are favorites here. I usually fill the kong and freeze it overnight.

I would think the difference between a peanut and peanut butter is that the peanut is whole and small and it is likely that Angel may not chew the peanut completely and therefore it may cause a stomach upset. The peanut butter is in a form that would be easier to digest. Just buy fresh peanut butter that has no additional sugar, fat or salt.

I have given peanut butter to Miko and he loves it but I never stuffed his kongy with it because I thought it may be too many calories for him??

Peanut butter is very calorie and fat dense. I would certainly keep it to a very, very small amount. It is about 100 calories for a tablespoon---16% protein, 7% carb and 76% fat!
