When I took my feline friend Sebastian to the vet several years ago, I was shocked when the doctor told me “You’re feeding him too much.” He didn’t even look fat! He was only 1.6 pounds overweight. So … one sure fire way to minimize the amount of pet food you buy, is to simply feed your animal less. How can you tell how much to feed your pet? If your pet looks overweight, then continue to decrease the amount of food you give it until the weight normalizes. Your vet can tell you what the optimal weight for your pet should be. You will be doing your animal a huge favor by extending its lifespan, and you will save lots of money on pet food. That’s my minimalism tip for today. Keeping it easy and breezy. Vita.
