    Treating 101: What You Should Know Before Rewarding Sparky

    A variety of dog treats are available at Dollar General — from meaty treats to crunchy biscuits. For cats, soft and crunchy varieties are available. 

    Treats should be limited to no more than 10 percent of your dog’s or cat’s total daily calories.

    What about table scraps? Dogs may enjoy a table scrap or two, but that doesn’t mean they should be a large part of your dog’s diet. That’s because human food doesn’t provide the complete and balanced nutrition dogs need. Remember, too, that some human food can be poisonous to dogs or cats depending on the dose.

    Small soft bones (such as pork chop or chicken bones) should never be given to your dog, as they may splinter and lodge in his mouth or throat.
