Tips for Giving Cat Treats
There's no replacement for a regular diet of high-quality cat food. Don't replace meals with treats. Snacks should be a tiny part of their diet.
Be careful about giving them people food. It may be good for you, but it's not necessarily right for cats. Our digestive systems and theirs aren't the same. While some foods, such as chicken, are beneficial for both of us, cats require a different combination of amino acids, vitamins, and minerals. Fortunately, Dog Day Afternoon has plenty of tasty snacks formulated especially to complete our cats diet.
Don't feed them from the table or support begging.
Offer a variety. You don't always have the exact 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 few 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. Several 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 standard cat food, and it's sometimes hard to tell the perks of one treat versus another. Every cat has different needs, and we can suggest delicious and tempting snacks that are ideal for your pet.
In Belleville, IL, Dog Day Afternoon isn't just the place to get cat treats. We serve all of your pet care needs. Drop in our store or call us at (618) 233-0060. We look forward to answering your questions and helping you select the very best of everything for your pets.

Love supporting small business and this pet store has high quality inventory. They were so nice and knowledgeable. I was able to get everything I needed for my new puppy. I will 100% shop here again.
This place is a real gem. I went in the other day to buy a specific dog food to use as a treat, but it was out of stock. When I asked if they had anything similar, I was told no. BUT she showed me a different food that works well as a high value treat. She even found me a sample to try out with my dog. Both workers were friendly, and polite, and the woman I spoke with was very knowledgeable. My dog enjoyed the store, too.
Last time I went into a non-chain pet store, none of the items had a price tag, which was incredibly frustrating. This store had price stickers on the large items and cutely labeled bins for small individual items like rawhides, etc. No confusion, no asking about every product. From what I looked at, prices are comparable with Chewy, but don't require the 2-day wait on shipping. I will DEFINITELY be coming back here.
This place rocks! The staff always has their dogs in and its nice to see the friendly furry faces. The groomers they have are incredible, I was seriously impressed with their professionalism and when I came back to get my big ol pup he looked wonderful. I'll never take my dog to another groomer. I know some people have complained about the wait getting an appointment the same day they call, but I have never had an issue. They are booked a little ways out, but im glad to see such a great small business thrive.
