Did you know that pet treats are one of the reason why pet obesity exists?
Treats should be given in moderation and with caution. It is called TREATS for a reason.
Some of the pet treats list calories of each treat on their packaging.
But we found many that do not list the calories.
There’s an easy way to calculate how many calories are in a treat.
This calculation is also helpful especially if you make homemade treats for your dog.
The origin of this calculation is from a book,
Feed Your Pet Right written by a nutritionist Marion Nestle.
It is a simple calculation.
1) You can calculate how many calories in a treat based on its weight in grams.
2) Assume that there are 3-4 calories per gram in a treat.
3) FORMULA: 1 Treat weight in grams x 3 or 4 = #calories/treat
Invest on a food scale and apply this simple calculation. A food scale is an inexpensive kitchen gadget that is beneficial for both you and your dog.
