Looking for recommendations for low calorie cat treats for clicker training my cat. He’s very food motivated so it’s been pretty easy to start, but I haven’t found the right treats yet. There are a few that he likes but they all have downsides. Here’s what I’ve tried:
Fancy Feast savory cravings aka the “chocolate bar” treats. He LOVES these, but they’re about 3 calories a square (probably why he likes them so much, ha!). The recommended serving size for him is 8 treats a day. I’d estimate I typically click/reward 10-15 times per session, so I need to cut them in half. They kind of splinter into crumbs if I don’t do it just right
Hartz Lickable treats
He also loves these tubes of lickable treat, but they unleashed digestion issues like I’ve never seen. Liquid coming out both ends for a couple days
Luvsome lickable treats
He liked these ones as well, but they’re more meaty bits in sauce than a paste, so the liquid is kinda messy. Definitely the best option so far, but it would be nice to have something that’s a little more of a paste consistency.
Bonus, other treats he’s not interested in:
Navus Sardine Treats
Emerald Dental Treats
Baby Blue Kitten Crunchies
I know this is a lot of detail for a post about cat treats, but I figured if anyone would have good ideas, it would be y’all!
