Treating your small animal

As a pet-loving nation we are sure to go above and beyond when it comes to our furry friends. For those with small animals there are many different enrichment strategies that create variety and encourage foraging fun. Here at Target Feeds Ltd we offer a range of healthy treats that will be a keen favourite within your little herd.

Apples are full of beneficial nutrients such as vitamin C which can play a vital role in supporting your pet's immune system. Not only this, but they are also an excellent source of fibre which can help towards a healthy digestive system. Their sweet taste also helps aid appetite as a healthy treat.

Bananas have a range of qualities for small animals, from encouraging confidence as a hand fed treat to being an excellent source of vitamins and minerals. Its abundant fibre source and essential nutrients create a delicious health treat for your pet. Also, its high potassium content aids in the development and maintenance of muscles and helps in supporting blood health.

Beetroot is enjoyed greatly by your pets as part of a natural diet, as a treat, or as an added tastiness when foraging. It has a great source of folic acid, vitamin C and B1 which allows natural circulatory support and detoxifying properties. Their delicious flavour makes them an ideal treat for appetite stimulation.

Carrots are not only a tasty snack for your pet, but they are also loaded with nutrients, such as vitamin A, C, K, and potassium. Also rich in beta- carotene, this can help towards promoting eye health. Carrots are great for herbivorous rodents, such as chinchillas, when given as a treat in moderation.

Flaked peas are a natural healthy treat for your small animal. They are a great way of also supplying key minerals and amino acids into the diet. The peas can be fed as a treat on their own or can be sprinkled into hay to create a fun enrichment activity for your pets to forage around.
