Default Ants

So I just found ants in Igor’s cat treats. They weren’t overrun with them so they were saveable.

But I was wondering if I can still feed Igor the treats? Or is there a health risk by doing so?

I wouldn't. You don't know where those ants have been, what they may have walked in and left on the treats that could be harmful to Igor.

Personally I don't think its really worth that risk. They may not have left anything and they may be fine. But its such a huge chance to take.

Yes that makes sense. He doesn’t get a treat tonight anyway, but tomorrow I’ll give him some of the dog treats we have. Cut it up.

I’ll buy him new treats next month. Such a waste though, the packet was still full 😭 darn ants. I don’t even know how they got in, in the first place. But thank you for your advice!
