Do not feed table scraps to your dog or cat — especially when they are trying to lose weight. Take a look at these unhealthy treats and what it would mean in human terms.

  • For a cat, a cup of milk or a piece of cheese may seem like a little treat, but it's like a whole meal for cats.
  • For a dog, a cookie or a piece of cheese may seem like a little treat, but it too is like a whole meal for dogs.

Too many unhealthy snacks can add up fast!

 

NOTE: If your veterinarian has suggested using cheese or another human snack to administer medicine, please be aware of the extra calories and account for it in your dog or cat's daily caloric intake. Always consult with your veterinarian if you have any questions.
