Support Our Local Pet Supply Store with Your Order of Canned Food
Exactly how do you know your cat is receiving the nutrition they really 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 help you in choosing the one that is perfect for your precious pet.
Your cat is a hunter, descended from a long line of hunters. Wild cats naturally ate a good range of nutritious food, based on what they could catch. But your domestic cat relies on you to feed them. City Dogs Grocery 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 really need meat in some form: animal protein for essential amino acids. This can 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. In addition, some cat foods consist of carbohydrates, which are digestible and provide energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put particular information on their labels, for instance, 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 consist of feeding directions, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's recommendations takes lead.
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 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.
