Tips for Giving Cat Treats
There's no replacement for a regular diet of high-quality cat food. Don't replace meals with treats. Snacks should be tiny part of their diet.
Be careful about giving them people food. It may be good for you, but it's not automatically good for Fluffy. Our digestive systems and theirs aren't the same. While some foods, such as poultry, are valuable for both of us, cats required a different combination of amino acids, vitamins and minerals. Fortunately, Z Bones Pet Mercantile has many tasty snacks made especially to complete Kitty's diet.
Offer a selection. You don't always have the exact same snack, so why should your cat? There are crunchy treats and semi-soft. There are flavors cats love such as chicken, fish and liver. Try and find a few that your favorite feline opts for.
Don't feed them from the table or invite begging.
Apply treats as a reward, especially after they've shown patience while being brushed, having their nails trimmed or taking medicine. A few people have even had success training their kitties with treats!
If your cat is slim and healthy, pick any product from [business's] shelves. Sadly, though, a lot of our cats are overweight. If that's the case, avoid treats with excessive calories, fat or salt. On the other hand, there are many cat goodies that are abundant in proteins and contain nutrients and supplements that can better Tabby's health.
If you have questions, ask us! Cat treat labels aren't subject to the same rigor as labels on regular cat food, and it's sometimes hard to tell the advantages of one treat versus another. Every cat has different necessities, and we can suggest yummy and tempting snacks that are best for your pet.
