Feeding treats to your pets should be done in moderation (not more than 10% of their total calorie requirement) and with consideration for their overall diet and health. Here are some guidelines:

1. Treats as rewards:

Use treats as occasional rewards for good behavior or during training sessions.

2. Portion control:

Follow the recommended serving size on the treat packaging and adjust regular meals accordingly.

3. Nutritional value:

Choose high-quality treats made with real ingredients and avoid those with excessive additives or fillers.

4. Health conditions:

Consult your nutritionist for suitable treats and feeding frequency if your pet has specific health conditions.

5. Dental health:

Consider dental treats to promote oral hygiene, but be mindful of their calorie content.

6. Individual preferences:

Observe your pet's response to different treats and adjust accordingly.

Remember, treats should be enjoyable but not replace balanced and nutritious meals. If you wish to understand more about your pet's daily calorie requirement based on breed, age and weight, you can check it out on Kuddle Nutrition Planner.
