Tips for Giving Cat Treats
There's no substitute for a regular diet of top quality cat food. Do not 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 necessarily good for cats. Our digestive systems and theirs aren't the same. While some foods, such as poultry, are beneficial for both of us, cats require a different combination of amino acids, vitamins, and minerals. Fortunately, The Filling Station Pet Supplies has many tasty snacks created especially to complete our cats diet.
Don't feed them from the table or promote begging.
Offer a range. 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 couple 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 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 standard cat food, and it's sometimes hard to tell the rewards of one treat compared to another. Every cat has different needs, and we can recommend delicious and tempting snacks that are ideal for your pet.
