How Many Dog Treats Should You Give Your Dog Per Day?

Wednesday, March 23, 2016
posted by Jim Murphy

dogtreatAll dogs love their treats but too many treats are not good for your dog for several reasons. If you give your dog a treat when training him or teaching him to do something, the dog treats are only given during these times. Giving too many treats may spoil your dog and his appetite. Generally, dog treats are less nutritious and more fattening than regular dog food.  If your dog is active, he or she won’t gain weight with this good active routine. He will burn the calories taken in, and at the same time get the nourishment he needs. In this case,  a few treats per day won’t hurt him but if he’s older and lounges around most of the day, I would cut back on the dog treats.  Make sure that your dog is fed a nutritious diet and ask your vet about treats that may be healthier for your dog. Use your own judgement and know how to say “no” to treats when necessary.
