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 alleging that their product is more effective than the others. City Dogs Grocery in Indianapolis, IN can help you cut through the chaos. We have a wide variety of cat foods and can aid you in selecting 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 good range of nutritious food, based on what they could catch. But your domestic cat counts on you to feed them. City Dogs Grocery 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 require meat in some form: animal protein for essential 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. 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 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 tells whether the food is intended for an adult cat or a kitten.
Labels consist of feeding advice, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's guidance takes lead.
Know food descriptions. There's a 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.
