If you are limiting dietary carbohydrates as part of your cat's regulation regimen, many popular cat foods and cat treats can pose a problem.

Cat treats should be as high as possible in protein as cats are obligatory carnivores, that is, their digestion and metabolism needs meat for proper functioning. There are 100% all-meat cat treats. They are usually freeze-dried, though some are wet and preserved by canning.

Freeze-dried cat treats come as:

  • Bonito/Tuna flakes
  • Cod fish filets
  • Salmon
  • Shrimp
  • Chicken
  • Beef
  • Livers

Whenever you're selecting a cat treat, read the label. Dry treats will necessarily have a higher carbohydrate content due to the manufacturing process. Also watch for high levels of sugar used as flavoring. However, remember that you're not seeking "zero" carbs, just lower carbs and higher protein. Also note that products labeled as "jerky-like" may be too tough for your cat.
