Tips for Giving Cat Treats
There's no alternative to a regular diet of top quality cat food. Don't 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 necessarily good for cats. Our digestive systems and theirs aren't the same. While some foods, such as chicken, are valuable for both of us, cats require a different combination of amino acids, vitamins, and minerals. Fortunately, Adventure Pets Covington has many tasty snacks created specifically to complete our cats diet.
Don't feed them from the table or invite 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. Many people have even had success teaching 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 benefits of one treat compared to another. Every cat has different needs, and we can recommend yummy and tempting snacks that are best for your pet.
