    Default Too young for peanut butter?

    Is my 10wk old puppy still too young to be given peanut butter as a "snack"? I'd like to smear some in his little Kong toy but not sure if it's a good idea yet. I'm also curious about when he can have things like pumpkin, cottage cheese, and yogurt.

    Also, when you guys give your bullies yogurt, what kind is it--plain, lowfat, full fat, non-fat, fruit-filled?

    thanks a bunch!

    I don't think it should be a problem to feed your baby peanut butter or any of those other foods.

    I would suggest using them in strict moderation until you know their effect on his developing system.

    I don't think he is too young for those things but I agree with sheshistory, do so in moderation. As for yogurt, I give Samson the nonfat plain yogurt. You should avoid the flavored ones, too much sugar in those for a dog!

    My boys get plain Greek yogurt--I share with them. 10 weeks is old enough for any of the foods you mentioned but like @sheshistory and @TessaAndSamson said moderation is the key!

    Great, i think i'll give him a little bit of p-b this evening and see what he thinks of it. I'll definitely work these foods in slowly and in moderation.

    Thank-you much for the input!

    @laurilolaandmojo--well, i'm just like your bullies when it comes to PB! I can't get enough of the stuff so if Tate doesn't like it (which I doubt), i'll finish it off for him!

    @giasmom--i've been giving Tate his Kong in the a.m. b4 i leave for work too...been putting those little "kong stix" or whatever they're called...not sure if this is the best thing for him but he really loves gnawing on the stuff and the ingredients don't look all that bad...but i'm looking for healthier alternatives like the pb for his Kong toy.

    I don't think there is such a thing like too young for cottage cheese and yogurt, I feed my 4 week old puppies either plain yogurt or cottage cheese in their soft food when I start them on food and I often mix yogurt in their formula if mom doesn't have enough milk. But a small amount goes a long way.....

    Yes just a scoop of yogurt--not too much!

    Moderation is key....and always introduce 1thing at a time and wait a week before adding another. That way you can determine if it bothers them or not.

    I also do this and i freeze it and samson is well at it for a while haha. How often can you do this though do you know, would once a day be too much?

    Another alternative is cream cheese, as peanuts are a possible allergy food for those bullies with allergies!
