    Excellent post - it is hard to break the habit of over "treating" and feeding one's pet, until you accept that obesity can shorten your pet's life!

    Good advice, however, I think quality of food should also be a factor for this discussion.  There are many brands of dog and cat food that include by-products that maybe toxic for most pets.  Also, ingredients for many pet foods is not regulated well. Even in high quality pet foods, tracking the global suppliers is difficult.

    Absolutely - it goes without saying that quality is important, especially in light of the almost daily recalls.

    Great article!  So many people don't realize how much food their pet is actually eating, especially if they free-feed.  Measuring will definitely help!
