Tips for Giving Cat Treats
There's no replacement for a regular diet of premium cat food. Never replace meals with treats. Snacks should be a small part of their diet.
Be careful about giving them human food. It may be good for you, but it's not always best for cats. Our digestive systems and theirs aren't the same. While some foods, such as chicken, are beneficial for both of us, cats require a different combination of amino acids, vitamins, and minerals. Fortunately, Pet Barn Inc has many tasty snacks made 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 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 approves.
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 ordinary cat food, and it's sometimes hard to tell the advantages of one treat versus another. Every cat has different needs, and we can recommend tasty and tempting snacks that are ideal for your pet.
