Tips for Giving Cat Treats
There's no replacement for a regular diet of top quality cat food. Never replace meals with treats. Snacks should be a small 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 poultry, are valuable for both of us, cats require a different combination of amino acids, vitamins, and minerals. Fortunately, Gone to the Dogs has plenty of tasty snacks created specifically to complete our cats diet.
Don't feed them from the table or support begging.
Offer an assortment. 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 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. Several 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 ordinary cat food, and it's sometimes hard to tell the benefits of one treat versus another. Every cat has different needs, and we can suggest tasty and tempting snacks that are best for your pet.
