Can I feed TLT to my pet with pancreatitis?
As with other treats and titbits, this product is not suitable for pets recovering from bouts of recent pancreatitis.
How much should I give my pet?
Each tube provides 295 kcals/100g (221 calories per 75g tube). Whether using as a treat, training aid or to give medication, we would recommend the following as a guideline:
Small dogs – up to 1/6 per day
Medium dogs – up to 1/4 per day
Large dogs – up to 1/2 tube per day
Cats – up to 1/6 per day
You do not need to use large amounts of the product as it is very concentrated. It can be diluted with warm water or other ingredients to make it go further for filling interactive toys etc. As a general guide, reduce dry food by 15g for every ¼ of a tube fed.
What if my pet has a Pork allergy?
If your pet has been diagnosed by a vet with a true allergy to pork protein, then this product is not suitable.
My dog has had digestive issues with dried pig skin/ear treats, will this be suitable?
Some pork products, such as dried skins or ears are made largely from indigestible protein, and these may be problematic to sensitive animals since an incompletely digested food protein has the potential to incite an allergic response. The fresh pork meat, liver and fat used in this product is novel with digestible nutrients and, if there is no known allergy or intolerance to pork, should not be problematic.
Is this suitable for my cat or dog with a sensitive stomach?
Absolutely, as long as your pet does not have a specific allergy to any of the ingredients or require low fat food. However, it is unwise to give any treats close to a bout of digestive upset and allow the digestive system to rest.
Why shouldn’t I just buy pork pate from the supermarket?
Your pet will certainly find a shop bought slab or tube of human pate very appealing! However, we urge you to read the ingredients list. These products may contain ingredients which fall within the most common dietary allergens, are very high in sodium (salt) or are in fact totally unsuitable for consumption by cats or dogs (e.g. onions or onion powder, nutmeg, unnamed spice mixes and various artificial additives and preservatives).
What is the sodium content?
0.5% (as fed) which equates to 0.17g per 100 calories, which is lower than most pates prepared for people.
My dog or cat will not eat their food can I use this product to help?
Yes, Tasty Liver Treat can be used as a palatant. Simply dissolve a small amount (approx. 1 teaspoon for a medium sized dog, use a little more or a little less for larger or smaller dogs or cats respectively) into a mug of hot water, stir and pour over the kibble. It smells delicious and will often tempt even the most reluctant of eaters.
Will this help in giving medications to my pet?
Yes, it is a great aid to giving mediation, either mixed in with a crushed tablet or with liquid medications on a dish. It can even be used for cats and dogs with kidney problems as low in phosphorous.
How shall I store this product?
Once opened, store this product, lid pointing upwards, in the fridge and use within 28 days.
Always keep delicious treats far out of reach of your pets to prevent dangerous events such as pets ingesting product packaging.
