How do you know your cat is receiving the nutrition they really need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each claiming that their product is better than the others. Pets Etc. in Plainfield, IL can help you cut through the confusion. We have a wide array of cat foods and can assist you in choosing 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 upon what they could nab. But your domestic cat relies on you to feed them. Pets Etc. has all the foods that will keep them happy and healthy. What Nutrients Does Your Cat Need? For starters, your cat is a carnivore. They require meat in some form: animal protein for necessary amino acids. This could be chicken, 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 offer energy. Reading a Cat Food Label Cat food companies are required to put specific information on their labels, such as ingredients in descending order of weight, and guaranteed analysis, which tells you minimum and maximum amount of nutrients like fats, protein, and fiber. Look for the nutritional adequacy STment, which tells whether the food is intended for an adult cat or a kitten. Labels have feeding advice, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's suggestions takes lead. Learn about 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 referred to 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. Still have questions? Just ask us!
