How Many Treats Should You Feed Your Cat?

Sunday, May 14, 2017

cattreatMy younger cat Millie loves her treats. She waits for them every night and I always come through with her favorites. I tend to go too far and give her a little too many. She gets treats in her bowl and I also put them in a little mouse that she has to smack around to get them out. It gives her some exercise. WebMD has published the following information regarding cat treats.

What Makes a Cat Treat Healthy?

Moderation is key, experts tell WebMD.

It’s fine to feed your cat treats, but they “should be a very small part of the diet,” says Marla J. McGeorge, DVM, an Oregon vet who treats felines only.

How small? Many experts recommend cat treats make up no more than 10% of the total calories a cat eats.

You can give your cat treats everyday but make sure  that you give them in moderation.
