How do you know your cat is receiving the nutrition they require? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each saying that their product is superior than the others. Pet Pantry in Harbor Springs, MI can help reduce the confusion. We offer a wide variety of cat foods and can assist you in finding the one that is right for your precious pet.
Your cat is a hunter, descended from a long line of hunters. Wild felines naturally ate a wide variety of nutritious food, based upon what they could snag. But your domestic cat depends on you to feed them. Pet Pantry 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 to have meat in some form. This could be chicken, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to supply energy and help absorb vitamins like A, D, B1, B2, B3, and B6. Additionally, some cat foods consist of 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 the minimum and maximum amount of nutrients like fats, protein, and fiber.
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.
Labels contain feeding instructions, but they're a guideline and not a "one size fits all." Your vet's guidance takes priority.
Search for the nutritional adequacy statement, which tells whether the food is meant for an adult cat or a kitten.
