“ Brand: Felix / Food Type: Cat Food „
Felix Denta Paws was something I originally bought for my oldest cat becasue she had tooth problems and needed to keep them clean. She hates letting anyone near her mouth so we decided to give her these to see if they helped her out at all and she certainly seems happier since we've been giving her these.
We decided that because they seemed to be helping our oldest cat so much, we'd try them on the younger two as well and they see equally impressed by them! We now have to buy them a pack of these every month or so because they use them up so quickly.
They only cost about 80p (sometimes more, someitmes less, depending on the store) and I think this is certainly worth it. After all, if they last 3 cats a month then that's pretty good!
As the name suggests, these treats are there to clean the teeth of your cats. They are shaped like paws. They have a strange texture which I suppose is to clean their teeth but my cats certainly don't seem to object to their texture.
I would recommend this to anyone with cats because even though my younger two cats' breathe didnt really smell, theres still been an improvement and their teeth seem much better for it. The older cat has certainly improved greatly and I think that this has got to make her feel better and be more able to eat her food.
After buying the chicken treats offered by felix and getting a good reaction from my kitten i decided to expand his treat choice and so decided to see what else felix had to offer. The packaging is similar to the other treats. Blue foil, with a resealable seal along the top. A picture of the felix cat on the front and pics of what the treats look like. Aswell as a little tooth logo indicating that the treats are good for cats teeth.
The treats claim to be good for cats teeth, reducing tartar build up and acting like a tooth brush. (like denturesticks for dogs) As teeth are often a major problem for cats that are on a meat only diet this seems like a good idea.
The treats are a reddy brown colour and are in the shape of a paw. They smell slightly bacony but aernt overpowering and are about 1cm x 1cm. My cat isnt as keen on these treats as on the chicken ones but hes still happier to eat them than his regular food.
At well under a pound for 50g they last quite a while providing you only give your cat a couple a day which to be honest is all the cat should need.
Unfortunately unlike a human tooth brush they wont give you cat nice fresh breath.
I like to spoil my cats sometimes, so I have a range of treats on offer. So I was pleased to find Felix Dentapaw - not just a treat, but a toothbrush for kitty too! These treats have a texture which acts to clean your cat's teeth and reduce the build up of tartar (that yellow substance that you sometimes see on their teeth).
Dentapaw go down reasonably well with two out of my three moggies, though one refuses to touch them completely. The good thing about these treats is that they really seem to work on their teeth, freshening their breath and visibly whitening them, so I'm happy with them on that count. However, the slightly worrying thing is that they look and smell incredibly salty. I wouldn't feel comfortable giving my cats more than one or two a day because of this (and indeed, there's a warning against feeding them more than about 10 on the packet!)
