Tips for Giving Cat Treats
There's no alternative to a regular diet of premium cat food. Never replace meals with treats. Snacks should be a tiny part of their diet.
Be careful about giving them people food. It may be good for you, but it's not necessarily 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, Animal House Pet Center has many tasty snacks formulated especially to complete our cats diet.
Don't feed them from the table or encourage begging.
Offer a range. 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 few 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. Some people have even had great results training 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 rewards of one treat compared to another. Every cat has different requirements, and we can suggest yummy and tempting snacks that are ideal for your pet.
