Tips for Giving Cat Treats
There's no substitute for a regular diet of top quality cat food. Do not replace meals with treats. Snacks should be a tiny part of their diet.
Be careful about giving them human food. It may be good for you, but it's not always good for cats. Our digestive systems and theirs aren't the same. While some foods, such as chicken, are helpful for both of us, cats require a different combination of amino acids, vitamins, and minerals. Fortunately, Pet Pantry & Dog Wash has many tasty snacks made especially to complete our cats diet.
Don't feed them from the table or encourage begging.
Offer a selection. You don't always have the exact same snack, so why should your cat? There are crunchy treats and semi-soft treats. There are flavors cats love such as chicken, fish, and liver. Try to find a couple that your favorite feline prefers.
Use treats as a reward, especially after they've shown patience while being brushed, having their nails trimmed, or taking medicine. Many people have even had great results teaching their kitties with treats!
If you have questions, ask us! Cat treat labels aren't subject to the same thoroughness as labels on standard cat food, and it's sometimes hard to tell the perks of one treat compared to another. Every cat has different needs, and we can suggest tasty and tempting snacks that are ideal for your pet.
