Am I Feeding My Pet Too Many Treats?
Cats and dogs have turned the art of begging into a science. It can be hard to resist pampering your pet with lots of treats. But giving your pet too many extra snacks can lead to weight gain, and obesity in pets can lead to serious health complications. It’s best to limit your pet’s intake of treats to no more than 10% of his or her daily diet. For more specific guidance on cat and dog food, you can talk to your pet’s veterinarian.
The vet can tell you how many calories your cat or dog should eat every day, based on his or her age, activity level, and weight. You can use this number to calculate 10% of the daily calorie intake. Check the calories on the bags of treats you purchase. Look for low-calorie options. You can also choose treats that serve a dual purpose, like the promotion of dental care.
