Having the right cat treat for your kitty is important to some cat owners. Treats are fun to give and are a nice way of bonding with your cat. Here are some tips to help you choose the best cat treats for your special kitty!
Features to Consider in a Cat Treat
Desirable Features of a Cat Treat
The ideal cat treat is one made of good quality ingredients, moderate to low in calories, consistent in ingredients (thus unlikely to cause stomach upset from bag to bag), and very appealing to your cat. New cat treat formulations that minimize dental tartar may also be beneficial to some cats however the overall effectiveness of this relative to the teeth is debatable.
The Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) publishes feed regulations and ingredient definitions. If the cat food (or cat treat) follows the guidelines set forth by AAFCO, the label will include a statement that says "Formulated to meet the AAFCO Cat Food Nutrient Profile for Kittens/Adults/Senior.”) Some companies create treats to be in compliance with the AAFCO standards, most companies producing cat treats do not.
It is also ideal if the treats you choose don’t cost you a fortune!
