Our educated staff will help you decide on the appropriate treats to ensure your purry friend is healthy and lively.
Tips for Giving Cat Treats
There's no alternative to a regular diet of premium 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 good for Fluffy. Our digestive systems and theirs aren't the same. While some foods, such as poultry, are helpful for both of us, cats required a different combination of amino acids, vitamins and minerals. Fortunately, The Critters & Me has plenty of tasty snacks formulated especially to fill out Kitty's diet.
Offer a selection. 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. Experiment and find a couple that your favorite feline goes for.
Don't feed them from the table or encourage begging.
Use treats as a reward, specially after they've shown patience while being brushed, having their nails trimmed or taking medicine. Many people have even had great results teaching their kitties with treats!
If your cat is trim and healthy, choose any product from [business's] shelves. Regrettably, though, many of our cats are obese. If that's the case, avoid snacks with extra calories, fat or salt. On the other hand, there are many cat goodies 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 rigor as labels on regular cat food, and it's sometimes hard to tell the advantages of one treat vs. another. Every cat has different conditions, and we can suggest tasty and tempting snacks that are ideal for your pet.
