Stand Behind Our Local Pet Store with Your Order of Cat Food
How do you know your cat is receiving the nutrition they need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each declaring that their product is more suitable than the others. Dog-Mania & Cats in Dade City, FL can help you cut through the confusion. We have a wide variety 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 cats naturally ate a good variety of nutritious food, based upon what they could snag. But your domestic cat counts on you to feed them. Dog-Mania & Cats 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 essential amino acids. This could 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. In addition, some cat foods feature carbohydrates, which are digestible and provide energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put specific information on their labels, like 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 explains 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 recommendations takes priority.
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 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.
