Tips for Giving Cat Treats
There's no substitute for a regular diet of high-quality cat food. Do not replace meals with treats. Snacks should be small part of their diet.
Be careful about giving them people food. It may be good for you, but it's not automatically best 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, ShakaPaw has loads of tasty snacks created especially to complete Kitty's diet.
Offer a variety. You don't always have the 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. Tryout and find a couple of that your favorite feline goes for.
Don't feed them from the table or encourage begging.
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 results teaching their kitties with treats!
If your cat is slim and healthy, decide on any product from [business's] shelves. Regrettably, though, many of our cats are obese. If that's the case, avoid nibbles with excessive calories, fat or salt. On the other hand, there are many cat nibbles that are plentiful in proteins and have nutrients and supplements that can better Tabby's health.
If you have questions, ask us! Cat treat labels aren't subject to the same roughness as labels on regular cat food, and it's sometimes hard to tell the perks of one treat vs. another. Every cat has different requirements, and we can suggest yummy and tempting snacks that are ideal for your pet.
