Tips for Giving Cat Treats
There's no alternative to a regular diet of premium cat food. Never replace meals with treats. Snacks should be a small part of their diet.
Be careful about giving them people food. It may be good for you, but it's not necessarily right 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, Odyssey Pets has plenty of tasty snacks formulated especially to complete our cats diet.
Don't feed them from the table or support begging.
Offer a variety. 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 couple 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. 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 advantages of one treat versus another. Every cat has different requirements, and we can suggest delicious and tempting snacks that are best for your pet.
