Why Size Matters

Bistro Bites™ was founded because of the void in the market for treats exclusively for small dogs, which lead to many health issues, especially obesity.

According to the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention the cost of obesity in illness and injury make it the number one medical issue seen in veterinarian offices today. The third annual National Pet Obesity Awareness Survey, conducted in October 2009, found that more than 34 million dogs (more than 45% of America’s total canine population) were estimated to be obese or overweight.

It’s easier for small dogs to become overweight, for a number of reasons. One of those reasons is that the dog treats available on the market are not sized correctly for them. Also, some dog owners feed human foods to their small dogs as treats, not realizing that even a small fast food hamburger is enough to satisfy the dietary needs of a small dog for between four and five days.

Bistro Bites solves this problem by coming in several sizes for smaller dogs – small for dogs 10 pounds and under and medium for dogs over 10 pounds. Our packages contain just the right number of treats to last a month, so you don't have to worry about overfeeding!
