The following tidbits have been taken with permission from the book "Chow Hounds" by veterinarian Dr. Ernie Ward:
One Small Pedigree
Denta-Bone for a 20lb dog os like us eating a Denny's Buttermilk Pancake Platter
One Snausages SnawSomes Peanut Butter and Apple Flavor for a 20lb dog os like us eating 1/2 Large Domino's Pizza with extra cheese
One Good Life Wholesome Bone Small for a 40lb dog is like is eating four chocolate eclairs
One Purina Busy Bone for a 40lb dog is like us eating four McDonald's Egg McMuffins
One Large Milk Bone Dog Biscuit for a 60lb dog is like us eating a large Snickers Bar
Here's my favorite: one large Beggin' Chew for an 80lb dog is like us eating a Wendy's Classic Single Hamburger with Everything, a medium order of fries, and a 20 ounce Coke Classic! Many of my patients get several of these treats every day.
