Peanut oil?

Hi, I’ve been discussing peanut oil with a few friends and it seems dog food manufacturers can list this as vegetable oil? Does anyone have any information on peanut oil in dog food? Thanks, Lynda

Hello and welcome to the forum. It’s an interesting question but unfortunately I can’t help on this one. I’ve looked at lots of dog food recipes and never once seen peanut oil listed. However, I have read that some folk give peanut butter in their dog’s Kong

Peanuts are not actually nuts at all, they are legumes and are generally considered safe for dogs, but what perceived benefit peanut oil has I have no idea. iwould have thought that there is more benefit using fish oil or animal fat, though i guess the same could be said for coconut oil too.
