Just how do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each claiming that their product is better than the others. Paw Country in La Mesa, CA can help you cut through the complication. We have a wide array of cat foods and can help 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 assortment of nutritious food, based on what they could snag. But your domestic cat depends on you to feed them. Paw Country 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 crucial amino acids. This could be chicken, 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 incorporate carbohydrates, which are digestible and offer 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.
Try to find the nutritional adequacy STment, which explains whether the food is intended for an adult cat or a kitten.
Labels include feeding advice, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's suggestions takes lead.
Learn about 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 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.
