Our knowledgeable staff will help you select the best treats to ensure your purry friend is healthy and lively.
Tips for Giving Cat Treats
There's no substitute 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 good 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 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 few that your favorite feline opts for.
Don't feed them from the table or encourage 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 results training their kitties with treats!
If your cat is trim and healthy, go for any product from [business's] shelves. Regrettably, though, a lot of our cats are chubby. If that's the case, stay clear of nibbles with excess calories, fat or salt. On the other hand, there are many cat nibbles that are abundant in proteins and include 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 recommend delicious and tempting snacks that are best for your pet.
