Benson's Pet Center in Saratoga Springs NY feels the same way about Kitty, which is why we carry a variety of delicious and nourishing nibbles for your pet. Our educated staff will help you select the right treats to guarantee your purry friend is healthy and lively.
Tips for Giving Cat Treats
There's no replacement for a regular diet of premium 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 automatically 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, Benson's Pet Center has plenty of tasty snacks produced especially to fill out Kitty's diet.
Offer an assortment. 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 couple that your favorite feline approves.
Don't feed them from the table or promote begging.
Use treats as a reward, especially after they've shown patience while being brushed, having their nails trimmed or taking medicine. Some people have even had great results teaching their kitties with treats!
If your cat is trim and healthy, select any product from [business's] shelves. Regrettably, though, a lot of our cats are obese. If that's the case, avoid treats with excessive calories, fat or salt. On the other hand, there are many cat snacks that are plentiful in proteins and have nutrients and supplements that can strengthen 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 perks of one treat vs. another. Every cat has different necessities, and we can suggest yummy and tempting snacks that are most ideal for your pet.
