    I could not find temptations on the list of low carb healthy treats under health links. The bag says 30% crude protein. I thought that was good.

    I think I read some where, that one and along with the one that I used to give Hank ( Purina Whisker Lickin's, soft treat) is considered "kitty candy"!

    Hank loves it but too high in carbs. Now I use it to raise his sugar levels if need be. Oh, it does too!

    We have one member who used Temptations as a high carb treat to bring up her cat when her blood sugar is low. Best to stick to a pure meat treat. Temptations have corn, rice and wheat flour - all carbs.

    The freeze dried meat-only treats seem to be the best. I purchase the dog ones sine it is less expensive.

    I've also used freeze dried liver treats. My local mom and pop pet food store stocked the Whole Life brand of liver treats. Here is a link to some at Chewy.com for chicken liverhttp://www.chewy.com/dog/whole-life-pure-chicken-liver-freeze/dp/36840 or this one for beef liver http://www.chewy.com/dog/whole-life-pure-beef-liver-freeze/dp/30232

    I stopped buying the Temptations, even for my 2 civies, once Wink joined my family, since the Temptations and a lot of other hard crunchy treats have high carb ingredients like corn, wheat, rice.

    Now, I only have to open ANY type bag that makes that crinkly sound like the Pure Bites treats come in (think a bag of almonds) and the cats come running. ohmygod_smile
