Get Behind Our Local Pet Store with Your Order of Cat Food
How do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each saying that their product is better than the others. Pets Etc. in Plainfield, IL can help you cut through the complication. We have a variety of cat foods and can assist 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 cats naturally ate a good selection of nutritious food, based on what they could snag. But your domestic cat depends on you to feed them. Pets Etc. 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 to have meat in some form: animal protein for necessary amino acids. This could be chicken, 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 supply energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put certain 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.
Look for the nutritional adequacy STment, which tells 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.
Understand 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 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.

We absolutely love this pets etc. store! The people are wonderful, and they’re always so sweet to my daughter when she goes in there. Even when we ordered with delivery through the pandemic, they included stickers and a lollipop for her and made her feel very special. Great selection; great people. Definitely check them out!
This place is the best! From dog grooming to food delivery-wouldn’t go anywhere else!
I took my 3lb Yorkie Izabella there today for a groom. I have heard from other groomers she is not the easiest to groom lol. I was so impressed with Billie who groomed her. She was just the nicest person I have met in a long time. she treated Izabella like she would her own pet. She said Izabella was well behaved and a pleasure to have there. I was so happy to hear this. thank you so much Billie for treating my furbaby so well. we will continue to see Billie for Izabella and my other dogs grooming needs.

We LOVE Pets ETC! They always go above and beyond and today I needed dog food and couldn’t get out to the store. I remembered that they have a delivery service and it was so easy to use. I highly recommend them for everything your pet needs. Thank you PETS ECT, for everything.
