Cat Food – Finding the Best Treats
What are the best cat treats? This is a question many people ponder, especially since so many stores and websites offer so many tempting treats. The truth of the matter is that there really is no single treat that is the best. Every cat likes a different treat, so it’s important to find one that your pet likes. The following are some tips for finding the best cat treats.
The first thing to look for in a healthy skin is moisture. Some cat foods only come dry. You may want to find a package that comes with a selection of canned or dry foods. Dry cat treats come in two flavors: dry ice and dehydrated raw meat. Freeze-dried is the best, but if you cannot buy dehydrated raw meat at the store, look for a product called dehydrated chicken breast, or even chicken tenderloin.
The best cat treats also come in variety. Not every pet likes the same taste. It’s OK to experiment with new cat treats. If your pet is a purist, then there’s nothing like the dried or freeze-dried cat treats on the market. But if you’re open to trying new foods, look for a variety in both flavors and size.
Another important factor to look for is the number of calories in the ingredients. Most artificial additives are carbohydrate based, and that adds calories without giving your pet any nutrients. Look for low-glycemic brands that use real meat as a protein source and have complex carbohydrates. Look for artificial additives like RolyPig that contain no calories and no fat.
Finally, look for products that are high in fiber and nutrition. Cats love crunchy foods, so look for moist cat treats such as canned raw chicken or a dried berry mix. A dried fruit mix like Fruits In A Bag (FAD) is crunchy yet nutritious. It has 22 g of fiber in a small package, which is almost twice the amount found in a can of tuna! And it’s not bad for you; about two calories per treat!
So what do you think? Is a dry mix like FAD better than a moist pack? Will your cat prefer the crunchy texture of canned or freeze-dried? Will he benefit from one over the other? With a little observation and a lot of research, you’ll find the best treats for your cat. And that will help you make better cat food choices, too!
