I have to/really want to/love to give my pet treats. Can my pet still lose weight? ~ YES!!!
With the New Year comes new resolutions for many. Staying healthy does not mean going without. This applies to us as well as our pets. Whether the goal is to maintain their weight or lose a few pounds, treats can still be a part of your pet’s diet.
Although high-calorie treats can certainly make weight loss more difficult, low-calorie treats can be used successfully. Below is a list of treats and how many calories they have. If a family likes to give large numbers of treats, we must compensate with less food at meals and by using lower-calorie foods. But remember, most packaged treats are similar to what we would consider “junk food” for our other kids (the human kind!).
