All of us would like to see our cats happy, and it's fun to give them something more than their typical 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 treats for your pet. Our well-informed staff will help you decide on the best treats to make sure your purry friend is healthy and lively.
Tips for Giving Cat Treats
There's no replacement for a regular diet of premium cat food. Never replace meals with treats. Snacks should be tiny part of their diet.
Be careful about giving them people food. It may be good for you, but it's not always 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 formulated especially to complete Kitty's diet.
Offer a selection. You don't always have the exact 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 few that your favorite feline opts for.
Don't feed them from the table or encourage begging.
Use treats as a reward, specifically 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 your cat is trim and healthy, pick any product from [business's] shelves. Unfortunately, though, a lot of our cats are obese. If that's the case, avoid treats with extra calories, fat or salt. On the other hand, there are many cat goodies that are rich in proteins and include nutrients and supplements that can strengthen Tabby's health.
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 perks of one treat vs. another. Every cat has different requirements, and we can advise delicious and tempting snacks that are ideal for your pet.
