How do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each claiming that their product is superior than the others. Pet Pantry & Dog Wash in Colorado Springs, CO can help reduce the confusion. We offer a variety of cat foods and can help you in choosing the one that is perfect for your precious pet.
Your cat is a hunter, descended from a long line of hunters. Wild felines naturally ate a wide selection of nutritious food, based on what they could snag. But your domestic cat is dependent on you to feed them. Pet Pantry & Dog Wash has all the foods that will keep them happy and healthy.
What Nutrients Does Your Cat Need?
For starters, your cat is a carnivore. They need meat in some form. This can be chicken, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to provide energy and help absorb vitamins like A, D, B1, B2, B3, and B6. Also, some cat foods include carbohydrates, which are digestible and provide energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put particular information on their labels, such as ingredients in descending order of weight, and guaranteed analysis, which tells you the minimum and maximum amount of nutrients like fats, protein, and fiber.
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 referred to as "chicken dinner" (or chicken formula) can be anywhere between 25 and 95 percent chicken.
Labels have feeding directions, but they're a guideline and not a "one size fits all." Your vet's recommendations takes precedence.
Try to find the nutritional adequacy statement, which explains whether the food is intended for an adult cat or a kitten.

They are great people that work there. Always helpful and a friendly smile. It's a pleasure to shop there for my dog
Store employees very knowledgeable and helpful
Always have what we need in stock and I love that they automatically keep track of how many bags of dog food we buy so they automatically give us the 12th bag free!
It was nice to be able to give both of my dogs a bath and not have to worry about clogging up my bathtub and they provided everything we needed
I initially rated a 3star by accident. This place has a really nice setup. And the staff is so accommodating. Even when we had a problem with the equipment, ultimately flooding the stall, they were more than nice about it. We were also pleasantly surprised at how affordable it was, compared to other local options. Too bad we are only in town briefly on vacation. I would love to support a business like this.
