We all would like to see our cats happy, and it's exciting to give them something outside their normal 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 number of delicious and nourishing snacks for your pet. Our educated staff will help you decide on the appropriate 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 high-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 always good 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 many tasty snacks produced especially to complete Kitty's diet.
Offer a selection. You don't always have the very 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 few that your favorite feline goes 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. Many people have even had success training their kitties with treats!
If your cat is slim and healthy, pick out any product from [business's] shelves. Unfortunately, though, a lot of our cats are obese. If that's the case, avoid goodies with extra calories, fat or salt. On the other hand, there are many cat treats that are rich in proteins and contain nutrients and supplements that can better Tabby's health.
If you have questions, ask us! Cat treat labels aren't subject to the same thoroughness as labels on ordinary cat food, and it's sometimes hard to tell the benefits of one treat versus another. Every cat has different needs, and we can advise tasty and tempting snacks that are best for your pet.
