Four Muddy Paws in St Louis MO feels the same way about Kitty, which is why we carry a wide array of tasty and nutritious treats for your pet. Our educated staff will help you choose the perfect 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 premium cat food. Do not replace meals with treats. Snacks should be modest part of their diet.
Be careful about giving them people food. It may be good for you, but it's not automatically ideal 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, Four Muddy Paws has many tasty snacks formulated especially to fill out Kitty's diet.
Offer a selection. 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 encourage begging.
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 success training their kitties with treats!
If your cat is slim and healthy, pick out any product from [business's] shelves. Sadly, though, a number of our cats are overweight. If that's the case, steer clear of treats with excessive calories, fat or salt. On the other hand, there are many cat goodies that are rich 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 thoroughness as labels on normal 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.
