We all like to see our cats happy, and it's exciting to give them something more than their typical diet. Fun for them and fun for us. ShakaPaw in Sandpoint ID feels the same way about Kitty, which is why we carry a wide range of tasty and nourishing snacks for your pet. Our well-informed staff will help you select the best treats to guarantee your purry friend is healthy and lively.
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 essentially 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, ShakaPaw has plenty of tasty snacks formulated especially to complete Kitty's diet.
Offer a variety. 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. Experiment and find a couple of that your favorite feline prefers.
Don't feed them from the table or promote begging.
Apply treats as a reward, even more so after they've shown patience while being brushed, having their nails trimmed or taking medicine. Many people have even had great results training their kitties with treats!
If your cat is slim and healthy, pick out any product from [business's] shelves. Sadly, though, a lot of our cats are overweight. If that's the case, stay clear of goodies with excess calories, fat or salt. On the other hand, there are many cat nibbles that are abundant in proteins and include nutrients and supplements that can improve Tabby's health.
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 vs. another. Every cat has different conditions, and we can suggest tasty and tempting snacks that are most ideal for your pet.
