Season's Eatings

As we approach the holiday season, which some of the staff here at Belle City call the eating season, we will be doing a series of posts regarding pet safety during the holidays.  For now, while we are tasting our kids Halloween candy, and are beginning to envision a large turkey meal in the not so distant future, I thought I'd share a few quick facts that I just read in Veterinary Practice News.

One oatmeal cookie for a dog =  One hamburger for a human

1 oz. of cheese for a cat = Four chocolate bars for a human

One potato chip for a cat =  Half a hamburger for humans
**estimates from Hills Pet Nutrition

Now that really put's treat intake in perspective!
