How do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they require? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each claiming that their product is better than the others. Pet Supplies 'N' More in Muskego, WI can help you cut through the confusion. We have a variety of cat foods and can aid 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 good range of nutritious food, based upon what they could snag. But your domestic cat depends on you to feed them. Pet Supplies 'N' More 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 need to have meat in some form: animal protein for essential amino acids. This can be poultry, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to provide 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.
Seek out the nutritional adequacy STment, which reveals whether the food is meant for an adult cat or a kitten.
Labels include feeding directions, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's guidance takes lead.
Know 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 called "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.
