    I found purely fancy feast natural hand selected treats in fresh packs.
    Crude protein 25 %
    Crude fat .5%
    Crude fiber .5%
    Moisture 70%
    Is this ok to give as a treat??? The freeze dried chicken is getting old...(boring)

    How do I calculate the carb content and/ or know if these are ok???

    Those numbers are minimums and maximums, so it will not be very accurate, but you would add those numbers together and subtract from 100 to get approximate carb content.

    That's Temptations isn't it? Yeah, those are not the best choice for a diabetic.

    Good to keep around for raising the BG and they are not eating but not a staple treat.
