    well is there any kind of sugar substitute in ICBINB???? If so that is dangerous/deadly to bullys and you can tell him that - salt isn't good for dogs either (which I guess that's why he chose the lite salt).

    "I cant believe its not butter" has soybean oil - soy is a no-no for dogs.

    Incoming unpopular opinion!!

    Unless he is putting a pound of ICBINB on the veggies or he is giving Jack a pound of carrots a day, the tiny bit of soy in it won't hurt him. And unless he is already overweight or has other health issues like pancreatitis or heart disease, the extra fat and calories might actually do him some good. The same would go for salt. Salt (in moderation) helps the cells retain the fluids that they need to function properly. The only time you would want to withhold salt is if the dog is hypertensive. Abby is about as sick as sick gets and I intentionally add a dash of salt to her meals. I will also give her the leftover vegetables from our own dinner on which I also use ICBINB and salt

    That said, I'm not exactly sure what "lite salt" is. I'm not sure how it's processed or if anything is added to it to make it "lite". Sodium in itself is (again, in moderation) a necessary mineral in a dogs diet.

    The things that we think of as bad for dogs like chocolate, garlic, grapes, onions etc are only bad if given in large quantities or the toxicity is accumulated over long periods of time. The only thing that I know of that even a small dose of is toxic is xylitol.

    For me, her name was Abby
