We all would like to see our cats happy, and it's exciting to give them something outside their regular diet. Fun for them and fun for us. The Scoop Feed & Supply in Waterloo IA feels the same way about Kitty, which is why we carry a variety of tasty and healthy snacks for your pet. Our knowledgeable 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 substitute for a regular diet of top quality cat food. Don't 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, The Scoop Feed & Supply has lots of tasty snacks made especially to fill out Kitty's diet.
Offer a range. 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. Try and find a couple that your favorite feline opts for.
Don't feed them from the table or encourage begging.
Apply treats as a reward, even more so after they've shown patience while being brushed, having their nails trimmed or taking medicine. A few people have even had results training their kitties with treats!
If your cat is slim and healthy, go for any product from [business's] shelves. Unfortunately, though, many of our cats are obese. If that's the case, avoid snacks with extra calories, fat or salt. On the other hand, there are many cat nibbles that are plentiful in proteins and include nutrients and supplements that can improve Tabby's health.
If you have questions, ask us! Cat treat labels aren't subject to the same roughness as labels on normal cat food, and it's sometimes hard to tell the perks of one treat versus another. Every cat has different conditions, and we can recommend tasty and tempting snacks that are best for your pet.
