Cat treats & cat snacks
Why have treats and snacks for cats?
Cat treats are good for a variety of reasons: you can get your cat’s attention in this way, reward behaviour and promote their natural urge to play during shared activities. Vitamin-rich snacks are also good for cats and supplement their diet, while dental care products strengthen their teeth. Treats with malt are good for digestion: cats automatically ingest hair when grooming. This can form painful hair balls in the stomach. Malt helps to remove swallowed hair more quickly. And of course, when you give your cat treats you are pampering them and showing them that you love them. You will also increase their affection for you in this way.
How many treats and snacks are good for cats?
As always, the golden rule applies: snacks only in moderation. Even for cats, too much well-intentioned pampering can have health consequences. They start getting fat and lose their ideal weight. Food manufacturers indicate a maximum quantity per day on the packaging. You should adapt these to your pet individually. Many cats like a varied diet, so you can switch up the different varieties now and then.
Which treats and snacks are suitable for cats?
There are different types of snacks for cats that are adapted to the animals’ individual needs. They also come in different forms, such as soft pastes that can be lapped up, juicy Soft Bites or crunchy snacks for chewing. Tasty food supplements include vitamins and minerals and support cats in the various stages of life. For cats with allergies or intolerances, there are special snacks that are made only with ingredients they can tolerate. There are also treats that are beneficial for the health of the stomach, intestines, teeth or fur. The different flavours, such as fish, beef or cheese, provide the necessary variety.
