We all want to see our cats happy, and it's fun to give them something outside their regular diet. Fun for them and fun for us. Wags to Whiskers in Plainfield IL feels the same way about Kitty, which is why we carry a number of tasty and nutritious goodies for your pet. Our well-informed staff will help you choose the appropriate treats to ensure your purry friend is healthy and lively.
Tips for Giving Cat Treats
There's no substitute for 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 necessarily best 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, Wags to Whiskers has plenty of tasty snacks created especially to complete Kitty's diet.
Offer a variety. 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 opts for.
Don't feed them from the table or promote begging.
Apply treats as a reward, specially after they've shown patience while being brushed, having their nails trimmed or taking medicine. A few people have even had success training their kitties with treats!
If your cat is trim and healthy, go for any product from [business's] shelves. Unfortunately, though, a lot of our cats are obese. If that's the case, steer clear of goodies with excess calories, fat or salt. On the other hand, there are many cat nibbles that are rich in proteins and contain nutrients and supplements that can strengthen Tabby's health.
If you have questions, ask us! Cat treat labels aren't subject to the same rigor as labels on normal cat food, and it's sometimes hard to tell the advantages of one treat vs. another. Every cat has different conditions, and we can advise tasty and tempting snacks that are most ideal for your pet.
