Cat Treat Recipe For Crispy Liver Morsels

By Valdette Muller| April 4, 2018 | Blog

As carnivores, cats used to get their main source of vitamin A from the liver within their prey.

A small bird or a mouse could have a little liver which the cat could have eaten. The odd bit of liver that we give our cats can give them a vital vitamin A boost as well as iron which is good for the blood.

Vitamin A is an essential vitamin for cats, which means it must be part of their diet in order for your cat to maintain optimal health.

However please be careful not to over feed liver to your cat. Too much liver in your cat’s diet can result in a vitamin A toxicity.

If your cat likes a bit of liver, rather use it as a way to treat, which means giving your cat liver in a small dose as they would have in the wild.

Liver is full of protein and also contains calcium, vitamins D, E, K and vitamins of the B group.

Cats can eat chicken liver either raw or cooked. They can eat them on their own or mixed in with other meat such as beef chunks.

Ingredients for Crispy Liver Morsels:

  • 1/2 cup cooked chicken livers
  • 1/4 cup water

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C .
  2. Place well-done livers and cooked carrots in a blender with the 1/4 cup of water, then blend until fine.
