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 a small part of their diet.
Be careful about giving them people food. It may be good for you, but it's not always right for cats. Our digestive systems and theirs aren't the same. While some foods, such as chicken, are beneficial for both of us, cats require a different combination of amino acids, vitamins, and minerals. Fortunately, All American Pet has lots of tasty snacks created especially to complete our cats diet.
Don't feed them from the table or support begging.
Offer a selection. 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 few 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. 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 suggest tasty and tempting snacks that are best for your pet.
