Tips for Giving Cat Treats
There's no replacement for a regular diet of top quality cat food. Don't replace meals with treats. Snacks should be a small part of their diet.
Be careful about giving them people food. It may be good for you, but it's not necessarily best for cats. Our digestive systems and theirs aren't the same. While some foods, such as poultry, are helpful for both of us, cats require a different combination of amino acids, vitamins, and minerals. Fortunately, Pet Pantry & Dog Wash has lots of tasty snacks produced specifically to complete our cats diet.
Don't feed them from the table or encourage begging.
Offer a variety. You don't always have the 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 handful that your favorite feline approves.
Use treats as a reward, especially after they've shown patience while being brushed, having their nails trimmed, or taking medicine. Several people have even had success training their kitties with treats!
If you have questions, ask us! Cat treat labels aren't subject to the same thoroughness as labels on ordinary cat food, and it's sometimes hard to tell the advantages of one treat compared to another. Every cat has different needs, and we can suggest delicious and tempting snacks that are best for your pet.
