Exactly how do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they really need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each declaring that their product is superior than the others. Pet Pantry & Dog Wash in Colorado Springs, CO can help you cut through the confusion. We have a wide variety of cat foods and can aid you in finding the one that is right for your precious pet.
Your cat is a hunter, descended from a long line of hunters. Wild felines naturally ate a good selection of nutritious food, based on what they could snag. But your domestic cat depends on you to feed them. Pet Pantry & Dog Wash has all the foods that will keep them satisfied and healthy.
What Nutrients Does Your Cat Need?
For starters, your cat is a carnivore. They really need meat in some form: animal protein for essential 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 consist of carbohydrates, which are digestible and supply energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put particular information on their labels, like ingredients in descending order of weight, and guaranteed analysis, which tells you minimum and maximum amount of nutrients like fats, protein, and fiber.
Seek out the nutritional adequacy STment, which reveals whether the food is meant for an adult cat or a kitten.
Labels include feeding advice, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's guidance takes lead.
Learn about food descriptions. There's a distinction 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.
