Adding a natural pet supplement to your recipe is another great way to make healthy treats at home. You can also add supplements formulated to help support specific areas of your pet’s body and mind. Here are just a few you might want to try for your cat treats: 

  • Fish Oil: Felines famously love the taste of fish, so they’ll be sure to go crazy over this blend of Icelandic sardines, anchovies, herring, and mackerel. The extra Vitamin E also helps the fish oil be better processed by the body. 
  • USDA Organic Probiotics with Prebiotics: I custom-picked 12 living strains with powerful dosing of 5 billion CFUs to balance your pet’s intestinal microflora. 
  • Calming Support: If your cat could do with a little extra zen, this unique blend of herbs, amino acids, neurotransmitters, and probiotics effectively promotes relaxation.
