The amount of treats to give your pet

Frozen or other snacks should be offered in a ratio of 10%. What we mean by this is that treats offered outside of meals should not exceed 10% of your pet's caloric intake. It is important to remember that any dietary supplement given to your pet, in addition to its usual meals, adds extra calories. This can influence their weight and unbalance their diet, a particularly crucial consideration for overweight pets.

Here is a simple method to determine the right amount to offer:

Let's take the example where your pet eats 1 cup of KALŪ kibble daily (i.e. 135g). In this case, it is recommended not to exceed approximately 13g of treats per day. For illustration, our capelins have an average weight of 5g each, which means that 2 to 3 fish are enough to reach the recommended daily limit.

Other examples:

Banana : A slice of banana weighs around 10 to 15 grams.

Strawberry : A medium strawberry weighs approximately 12 to 18 grams.

Mango : A piece of mango (2 cm square) weighs approximately 12 to 15 grams.

Cucumber : A slice of cucumber (0.5 cm thick) weighs approximately 10 to 15 grams.

Tip: You can then reduce your companion's daily kibble ration a little if you give him a frozen treat on hot days or even better, add part of his ration to the treats! Kibble is a nice addition to snacks to replace other more caloric ingredients.

The entire KALŪ team wishes you a great summer with your companions!
