Tips for Giving Cat Treats
There's no alternative to 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 best 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, Auggie's Pet Supplies has many tasty snacks created especially to complete our cats diet.
Don't feed them from the table or encourage 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 handful that your favorite feline approves.
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 training their kitties with treats!
If you have questions, ask us! Cat treat labels aren't subject to the same thoroughness as labels on regular cat food, and it's sometimes hard to tell the advantages of one treat compared to another. Every cat has different requirements, and we can recommend yummy and tempting snacks that are best for your pet.
