Tips for Giving Cat Treats
There's no substitute for a regular diet of premium cat food. Don't replace meals with treats. Snacks should be a small part of their diet.
Be careful about giving them human food. It may be good for you, but it's not necessarily good for cats. Our digestive systems and theirs aren't the same. While some foods, such as poultry, are valuable for both of us, cats require a different combination of amino acids, vitamins, and minerals. Fortunately, The Urban Dog has plenty of tasty snacks created specifically to complete our cats diet.
Don't feed them from the table or promote begging.
Offer a range. You don't always have the same snack, so why should your cat? There are crunchy treats and semi-soft treats. There are flavors cats love such as chicken, fish, and liver. Try to find a handful that your favorite feline approves.
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 great results teaching their kitties with treats!
If you have questions, ask us! Cat treat labels aren't subject to the same thoroughness as labels on regular cat food, and it's sometimes hard to tell the rewards of one treat versus another. Every cat has different requirements, and we can suggest yummy and tempting snacks that are ideal for your pet.
