How do you know your cat is receiving the nutrition they require? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each saying that their product is more effective than the others. Pet's General Store in Lakewood, OH can help you cut through the chaos. We store a number of cat foods and can aid you in finding 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 range of nutritious food, based on what they could catch. But your domestic cat relies on you to feed them. Pet's General Store 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 require 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. Additionally, 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, 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.
Search for the nutritional adequacy STment, which tells whether the food is meant for an adult cat or a kitten.
Labels consist of feeding instructions, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's advice takes lead.
Learn about 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.
