Around 1 in 3 dogs in the UK are suffering from obesity.
Obesity is an important issue and can lead to heart disease, diabetes, arthritis and other mobility problems.
We all like to treat our dogs, and there is nothing wrong with that. But we do have to take care that their overall calorie consumption, including treats, isn’t more than they need.
Fish4Dogs Low-Calorie Treats
Fish4Dogs Sea Jerky is a low calorie treat – with only 2.5 calories in each Sea Jerky Tiddler – compared to 50 or even over a 100 for some dental treats. Used sensibly, you can still treat your dogs for a fraction of the calories.
That doesn’t mean you can feed them their own body weight in Sea Jerky but it does mean that you can give them a few delicious treats that they will love safe in the knowledge that you aren’t piling on calories.
At Fish4Dogs, we like to promote sensible feeding. Remember our feeding guidelines are a guide, and how much food your dogs needs will vary from dog to dog. Start with the feeding guidelines and then monitor your dog's weight
- if they seem to be putting on weight, then reduce the amount of food
- if they are losing weight, increase the amount of food.
