Dogs and Packing Peanuts
I received a package with the biodegradable starch peanuts for
packing. Which I think are great! As I was disolving them in water one
of our dogs ate a peanut or two. Is there any potential danger to
animals with these if digested?
No. They are starch. You can eat them yourself. (I sometimes do.) My dog used to eat them when he found them (rest his furry soul.)
When I get them, if I'm not going to re-use them, I just put them in my compost pile.
