Cats quickly become accustomed to the sound of the treat bag as you shake it ready for the next snack. Cat treats should not only appeal to your cat’s senses, but also offer health benefits too, such as tartar and plaque control, which is just what Pounce® Tartar & Plaque Control Cat Treats provide.
Price and Availability
While out shopping for cat treats recently, I wanted to buy a bag of treats that would provide dental benefits for my cats, as I noticed that the cats were all starting to suffer from bad breath. Most of the cat treats they usually eat do not offer additional dental benefits. I settled for a 127g (4.5 oz) bag of Pounce® Tartar & Plaque Control Cat Treats for just $1.52 from Wal-mart, which is not a bad deal for a bag of cat treats.
According to the Pounce® nutritional statement, Pounce® Tartar & Plaque Control Cat Treats “are formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO cat food nutrient profiles for maintenance”.
Pounce® Tartar & Plaque Control Cat Treats are catnip flavoured, which I knew my cats would go for, as they love rolling around in catnip whenever they use their catnip-laced scratching post or if I sprinkle more catnip onto the scratching post. The bag is green and features a delighted, contented looking cat playing with Pounce® Tartar & Plaque Control Cat Treats as if they were toys. I was curious to find out how well the cat treats smelled, but I was not particularly impressed. Pounce® Tartar & Plaque Control Cat Treats reminded me of stale food or smelly socks.
All it took was a few shakes of the bag and all four cats came running for their share of Pounce® Tartar & Plaque Control Cat Treats. According to the feeding instructions, cats that weigh 6-8lb should be given 14-18 pieces and cats larger than 18lb should be given 18 treats plus 2 for each pound above 8. I was not prepared to feed the cats that many treats, so I just gave the cats 5 cat treats each. Even though my cats usually prefer soft cat treats, they were very impressed with these treats and wanted more once they had eaten their share.
I was impressed with Pounce® Tartar & Plaque Control Cat Treats and so were my cats, as they quickly ate their treats and came back for more. Although I cannot personally attest to a dramatic improvement in my cats’ dental health, I did notice that their breath was fresher.
