Exactly how do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they require? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each saying that their product is superior than the others. Pet's General Store in Lakewood, OH can help you cut through the chaos. We stock a wide variety of cat foods and can assist 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 cats naturally ate a good range of nutritious food, based on what they could snag. But your domestic cat is dependent on you to feed them. Pet's General Store 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 need meat in some form: animal protein for essential amino acids. This may be poultry, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to deliver energy and help absorb vitamins. Vitamins such as A, D, B1, B2, B3, and B6. Minerals including iron, sodium, and chloride. On top of that, some cat foods consist of carbohydrates, which are digestible and provide energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put particular information on their labels, for instance, ingredients in descending order of weight, and guaranteed analysis, which tells you minimum and maximum amount of nutrients like fats, protein, and fiber.
Search for the nutritional adequacy STment, which tells whether the food is meant for an adult cat or a kitten.
Labels include feeding instructions, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's recommendations takes precedence.
Know food descriptions. There's a big 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.
