Latest Topic: Are you overfeeding your dog?

Treats should be limited to no more than 10% of the recommended daily calorie intake. Seemingly small treats can, in fact, turn out to be the equivalent of a sizable meal. If these calories are not included in your calculation of your dog's daily food rations, there is a serious risk of causing obesity. For instance, 2 oz (2 slices) of ham equals 70 calories or 1 doughnut equivalent for humans.

1 oz of cheese (120 calories) equals 2 doughnuts

1 hotdog (170 calories) equals 3 doughnuts

2 oz of liver treats (199 calories) also equals 3 doughnuts

3 oz of bacon strip treats (297 calories) equals 4 doughnuts

1- 6 oz rawhide bone (667 calories) equals a whopping 10 doughnuts
