Today, many dogs and cats are overweight or obese, a problem which can shorten their lifespan by putting them at a higher risk for weight-related diseases. Obesity in pets can be a result of a combination of causes, such as not getting enough exercise or being overfed. One contributor to overfeeding that many pet owners fail to take into consideration is treats.
While the nutritional content of pet treats can vary greatly, all treats should be factored into your pet’s daily calorie consumption. For this reason, the number of treats you should feed your pet can depend on the treat’s calorie content, how much food you feed your pet, and how much exercise your pet gets. If you have questions about the right number of treats for your pet, then ask your veterinarian during your pet’s next checkup.
