Tips for Giving Cat Treats
There's no replacement for a regular diet of high-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 always good for cats. Our digestive systems and theirs aren't the same. While some foods, such as poultry, are helpful for both of us, cats require a different combination of amino acids, vitamins, and minerals. Fortunately, Fangs & Fur has plenty of tasty snacks created specifically to complete our cats diet.
Don't feed them from the table or promote begging.
Offer a range. 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 prefers.
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 standard cat food, and it's sometimes hard to tell the rewards of one treat versus another. Every cat has different needs, and we can suggest delicious and tempting snacks that are best for your pet.
