Just how do you know your cat is receiving the nutrition they need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each saying that their product is more effective than the others. Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming Wesley Chapel in Wesley Chapel, FL can help you cut through the confusion. We stock a wide array of cat foods and can aid you in choosing 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 variety of nutritious food, based upon what they could snag. But your domestic cat is dependent on you to feed them. Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming Wesley Chapel 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 need meat in some form: animal protein for essential amino acids. This may be poultry, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to supply 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 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 like fats, protein, and fiber.
Search for the nutritional adequacy STment, which explains whether the food is meant for an adult cat or a kitten.
Labels have feeding instructions, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's advice takes precedence.
Learn about food descriptions. There's a big 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.
