Obesity in dogs is a major health concern. Just as with people, obesity can lead to very serious health problems.
Want a low-cal dog treat tip? Think veggies! Carrot niblets, snow peas, and celery make great snacks - without all the calories and fat of traditional dog biscuits. Just make sure that, like anything else, you feed veggies in moderation - only a few pieces a day.
