Just how do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they really need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each alleging that their product is more effective than the others. Pet's General Store in Lakewood, OH can help you cut through the complication. We have a wide range of cat foods and can assist you in finding the one that is just right for your precious pet.
Your cat is a hunter, descended from a long line of hunters. Wild felines naturally ate a good range of nutritious food, based on what they could snag. But your domestic cat relies on you to feed them. Pet's General Store has all the foods that will keep them satisfied and nutritious.
What Nutrients Does Your Cat Need?
For starters, your cat is a carnivore. They need to have meat in some form: animal protein for necessary amino acids. This could 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. On top of that, some cat foods include carbohydrates, which are digestible and supply energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put certain information on their labels, such as ingredients in descending order of weight, and guaranteed analysis, which tells you minimum and maximum amount of nutrients such as fats, protein, and fiber.
Search for the nutritional adequacy STment, which tells whether the food is intended for an adult cat or a kitten.
Labels consist of feeding directions, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's advice takes lead.
Know 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.

Great local shop. One of the few places with a cat groomer.
This is the best privately owned shop in town. The entire staff is extremely knowledgeable, super friendly and make you feel like family. Also, the groomer here is hands down the best around!
People where kind, informed and honest. They weren't just trying sell they made sure you knew what you were getting. Would definitely be my first recommendation to anyone.
