Peanuts are safe for dogs

Peanuts are generally safe for dogs and are a good source of protein. Although the fats found in peanuts are generally good for your dog, peanuts are still high in fat. For this reason, it is best to feed it in moderation. Be aware, peanuts can harbor aflatoxins, which are a highly toxic mold that can lead to liver disease and cancer in dogs. Organic peanuts are preferred because they are less problematic in terms of mold.
