Tips to Prevent Pet Obesity - Home & Family

It’s important to continue to connect with your pet, and giving treats is a nice way to do that but be aware that treats shouldn’t be more than 10% of daily ration!

  1. Break up their treats into smaller treats, so you’re rewarding them with little bits at a time.
  2. Choose healthier, alternative treats that will fill them up but aren’t as high calorically. Like Cauliflower, apples, carrots, green beans, watermelon (for dogs)
  3. A Feed 2x a day so you can observe their eating patterns and don’t leave food out for free grazing!
  4. Feed based on what the bag of food recommends but remember that those calculations are for dogs/cats that are at their most active. If yours are more sedentary, feed less.
