Help your Dogs Shed some Pounds with Low Calorie Treats

Did you know that the American Pet Products Association estimates that 41 million dogs are classified as overweight or obese? 41 million! That means that a lot of us are over feeding our pets and not helping them get enough exercise.

When it comes to helping our pets lose weight, one of the hardest activities to change is giving our pets treats. We all want to give out little rewards and show them how much we love them, but all those treats can add up to extra weight. A great place to start is to switch your current treat to a new low calorie, low fat treat.

You could also switch your pet over to a freeze dried treat, like the ones from PureBites. The PureBites treats are made from just one freeze dried meat source and there are no extra ingredients added, so they are great low calorie options and they are available in flavors for dogs and cats. Remember that it’s not just dogs that are over weight!

Although low calorie treats and weight control foods can help reduce your pet’s weight, it’s very important to make sure your pets get exercise every single day. A simple 20-30 minute walk twice a day is a perfect healthy routine for your pets, and let’s face it, it’s good for us too! So what are you waiting for? Grab your pup and go!
