Whether your pet is in great shape, carrying an little extra weight, or is obese, you may want to reconsider the high-fat, high-calorie pet treats. There are many healthy, and inexpensive options you might offer instead. If your pet is already eating a quality commercial diet designed for his or her age, breed,and stage of life, the addition of fruits and vegetables is not necessary for nutritional balancing. However, as treats or snacks, fruits and vegetables offer task, low-calorie options, in moderation. These should only be offered in small quantities, as in less than 10% of your pet’s diet. If eaten in huge amounts, and not eased into gradually, it could result in gastrointestinal disturbances. Check with your veterinarian first, but if there are no conflicts with medical conditions or prescribed diets, here are some guidelines that may help you select for your cat.
Good fruits/Vegetables for cats (offer only in small amounts)
-cooked winter squash
Avoid these fruits or vegetables with cats
-uncooked veggies (while they may be highly palatable, they may pose a choking hazard or may be difficult to digest).
