Get Behind Our Local Pet Shop with Your Purchase of Cat Food
Exactly how do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each declaring that their product is better than the others. Pet Pantry in Colorado Springs, CO can help you cut through the complication. We store a wide variety of cat foods and can help you in selecting the one that is ideal for your precious pet.
Your cat is a hunter, descended from a long line of hunters. Wild felines naturally ate a good variety of nutritious food, based upon what they could catch. But your domestic cat depends on you to feed them. Pet Pantry has all the foods that will keep them happy and nutritious.
What Nutrients Does Your Cat Need?
For starters, your cat is a carnivore. They really need meat in some form: animal protein for necessary amino acids. This may be poultry, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to supply energy and help absorb vitamins. Vitamins such as A, D, B1, B2, B3, and B6. Minerals including iron, sodium, and chloride. In addition, some cat foods feature carbohydrates, which are digestible and supply energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put specific information on their labels, for instance, ingredients in descending order of weight, and guaranteed analysis, which tells you minimum and maximum amount of nutrients such as fats, protein, and fiber.
Seek out the nutritional adequacy STment, which reveals whether the food is intended for an adult cat or a kitten.
Labels consist of feeding advice, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's advice takes precedence.
Understand food descriptions. There's a difference between "chicken cat food" and "cat food with chicken." Chicken cat food must be 95 percent chicken, while cat food with chicken can have as little as 3 percent. Food described as "chicken dinner" (or chicken formula) can be anywhere between 25 and 95 percent chicken.
In any case, look at nutrients in addition to ingredients. After all, nutrition is what your cat needs.

Was very happy that they carry the brand of dog food I needed. I had been to three different pet shops prior and had no luck. Goo to know a place that I can use from now on to get what I need for my fur baby.
