We all like to see our cats happy, and it's fun to give them something outside their usual 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 wide array of yummy and nutritious goodies for your pet. Our educated staff will help you choose the right 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 small 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 valuable for both of us, cats required a different combination of amino acids, vitamins and minerals. Fortunately, The Scoop Feed & Supply has plenty of tasty snacks made especially to complete Kitty's diet.
Offer a variety. 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 couple that your favorite feline goes for.
Don't feed them from the table or support begging.
Use treats as a reward, specifically after they've shown patience while being brushed, having their nails trimmed or taking medicine. A few people have even had progress teaching their kitties with treats!
If your cat is trim and healthy, pick out any product from [business's] shelves. Sadly, though, a number of our cats are obese. If that's the case, avoid nibbles with excess calories, fat or salt. On the other hand, there are many cat nibbles that are plentiful 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 rigor as labels on standard cat food, and it's sometimes hard to tell the benefits of one treat compared to another. Every cat has different conditions, and we can suggest delicious and tempting snacks that are best for your pet.
