We received this nifty infographic that helps remind all of us that treats and anything "extra" like table scraps all count toward your pet's daily caloric allotment.
Of course that sounds obvious, but if 55 percent of U.S. dogs and cats are overweight then I'd say someone is being overfed and under exercised! It's kind of like saying that food eaten by humans standing up doesn't count. EVERYTHING counts, so make sure to help keep your pet healthy by measuring their food and counting in treats and snacks too.
Our FitDog Friday co-host SlimDoggy has a neat app that can help you keep track. Check it out here after you wander through the infographic and then, head on over to see all our other pals participating in FitDog Friday!
