Making sure your cat has proper Dental Hygiene is very important as they help eradicate problems and issues relating from Gingivitis and Plaque that can lead to both Tooth Decay and Heart-Related issues. Dental Chews don’t only help provide oral care but they also come in a variety of textures and flavors with spectrums of Nutritional benefits that range from Skin and Coat to Hip and Joint care and more. Hard Chews are also great for developing jaw and chewing muscles.
Soft and Chewy Treats:
Soft and Chewy Cat Treats are extremely soft and somewhat moist and Chewy. These types of treats are typically mixed with various ingredients with a glutinous mixture or something that binds and provides a softer texture like applies and bananas. These types of cat treats are then dehydrated in a low heat setting in the oven for a shorter period than for example Dehydrated Dog Treats or foods and removed from the heat source until it has a dried and chewy texture. These types of treats pack more flavor than treats that are typically freeze-dried or dehydrated. Cats love these as they’re packed with flavors and they’re the closest snack or treat to its freshest source behind Cat Foods that are raw and Wet Cat Foods.
Soft Cat Chews typically have a lesser shelf life period however they’re the most enticing and appetizing treat made available and that’s what makes these very popular. They’re also delicious when placed in a fridge or freezer to pro-long shelf life and they double as a hard chew or a summer treat.
Today’s modern technology had enabled manufacturers to create a cooking or baking process that prolongs shelf-life and retains every bit of flavor and that method of cooking is called Freeze-Drying and that process remains the same as say Freeze-Dried Dog Food. Now let’s talk about what this process is. The Freeze-Drying process is a method wherein water is completely drained through a process called Sublimation which basically Crystallizes the food (The process is also referred to Crystallization) and what this does is it converts liquid or water within the foods or treats into a gaseous state. After that’s done it’s Crystallized a secondary period to remove any excess water.
Before this initial and secondary sublimation process even begins the foods are initially fully cooked to remove any and all bacteria and chemicals found in raw cat foods. Between the cooking and sublimation periods the process is actually conducted very quickly as compared to Dehydrated Cat Foods which are heated over a long period of time.
Cats and their owners love buying Freeze-Dried Cat Treats as they’re about the same thing as eating Raw Foods with a shelf-life that can last years and they don’t require freezer space and don’t be deceived by the way they’re cooked down, they actually pack 4 times the nutrients when compared pound to pound with say Dry Dog Foods and Wet Cat Foods. They’re so easy to travel with and can be used sparingly as a full and complete meal replacement. They’re also Human-Grade, we’re just saying!
Dehydrated Cat Treats:
Mmmmmm… yes these are nothing short of delicious. Like Freeze-Dried Treats these little Dehydrated Treats for Cats are extremely appetizing and pack in lots of nutrients and flavors pound for pound. These Dehydrated Treats have harder textures than Soft and Chewy Treats and they’re softer than Dental and Hard Chews and similar in Texture to Freeze-Dried Treats.
These Treats are placed in a low heat oven for many hours of approximately 200 degrees, the idea here is low and slow, what this then does is it dries out the Meats, Chickens, Fruits and Vegetables of Water. Think of it as a sauna, most of us need to hydrate when we go inside or leave, the same for foods that are dried using this method. Liquids or Waters slowly begin to exit the food source so that it retains a light degree of moisture without burning the food.
Dehydrated cat treats are delicious as they pack in high levels of protein and they’re typically blended and flavored or spiced to your felines taste buds such as Chicken, Beef mixed with Fruits and Vegetables with any spice your cat enjoys. They’re chewy so they can be taken anywhere and they’re high in nutritional value. Due to the dehydration process not much salt or sugar is added to retain flavor, they’re high in all-natural flavor since the food or treats cook down to a quarter it’s original size as the flavor is condensed further in the oven. And guess what they’re human grade too.
Cat Jerky Treats
These deliciously flavored Cat and Dog Jerky Treats are cooked very similar to Dehydrated Treats are, these baking process remains the same with the exception of these treats are typically mor salted and spiced. Similar to Dehydrated Treats, Jerky Treats are usually tougher in texture and are Dehydrated for an even longer period of time than Dehydrated Treats. These are also Human Grade and are stronger in Nutrients. These types of treats feature the lowest levels of moisture. They’re similar in toughness to bully sticks, they’re great for developing stronger chewing muscles however due to the higher sodium levels these treats are typically eaten sparingly as an enjoyable snack your cat or dog will live to chew on. They’re very high in nutritional value and many Jerky treats aren’t eaten with blended mixtures for instance straight up Fish such as Cod or Salmon and Trout or Beef Jerky (We all love that) or Chicken Jerky maybe with an added barbeque sauce or spice or two or three.
Dogs and Cats love for Jerky extends to their owners. Jerky is so high in Protein and since they’re cooked down for so long they pack in so much nutritional value. Go ahead and give these a try yourself since they’re human grade. If you’re not into Chicken try Turkey, Bacon or whatever your cat loves we have it. Just know that Pet Life only sources out the manufacturers with the freshest and cleanest ingredients and that’s important when buying some good old fashion quality jerky yeeehaww.
Catnip and Cat Grass:
It’s no mystical secret that Cats love to calm down namaste style wherever that are. Catnip is a natural plant or gardening source that is known to completely calm and chill out your cats. This type of plant also goes by the name Catmint or Catswort and naturally cultivated in Asia and Europe. This plant is used in some teas we drink to help calm us down and they’re also an attractant that cats just keep getting drawn to.
Catnip like the fresh spices we buy in our cabinets are commonly sold dry and crushed. However, there are some brands of catnip that are sold fresh in whole leaves and those are just breathtaking literally they can’t have enough they just enjoy it and you can see the smiles in their little whiskers.
