You love your pet and you want to provide them with healthy meals and treats.

Consumption of too much food or too many treats can lead to obesity, do it is important to know if your pet’s eating habits are keeping him healthy. Talk to your vet to determine the appropriate amount of food and treats for your dog’s breed, age and size.
