Can anyone recommend a high-fiber treat?

Misty won't touch pumpkin or bran cereal.

Thanks,
Jennie

Try mixing Beechnut baby food veggies in with canned food.

Is benefiber, I am pretty sure thats tasteless and odorless, safe for cats? I would imagine so. Ingredient is Wheat dextrin. Dextrin seems to be carbohydrates that the body can't digest. Kind of like fiber. Research more and see if this is a possibility.

Maybe try psyllium husk powder.

If Benefiber doesn't work, try getting some guar gum powder from a health food store and mixing that with cat food or the gravy from the bottom of the can, plus water. (Benefiber used to be made from guar gum before they changed the formula.)

Peas or beans are also good. If your cat will east them plain, peas have added appeal because you can roll or bounce them. If not, try dipping them in cat food gravy, or mush them up in it.

Also, all high-fiber treats taste better when hand-fed.

Yes, Benefiber is safe for cats....I used it when Callie had IBD. Completely tasteless and didn't affect the consistency of the food at all. She showed no signs that she detected it at all. Maggie would even eat what Callie didn't finish and she can detect the slightest bit of anything different mixed in the food.

Benefiber HOW COOL!
Great idea!
My new Sindy has anal sac issues and fiber treats cured my Bosco of his nasty anal troubles. I fed him Fiber Formula Treats by Stewart. The only draw back was
that they were fairly expensive. Benefiber is way cheap! LOL
Cant wait to try it....I will post back next week to see if my darling Sindy has lost her lovely anal odors.....Yuck she STINKS!
Here is a review of Fiber Formula Treats and I can add 10+ more positives to the review.

Another option - treat form - might be Cat Lube.
