Stand Behind Our Local Pet Supply Store with Your Order of Cat Food
Just how do you know your cat is receiving the nutrition they need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each declaring that their product is more effective than the others. Roo's Holistic Pet Supplies in Muncie, IN can help you cut through the chaos. We stock a variety of cat foods and can assist 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 felines naturally ate a good variety of nutritious food, based upon what they could snag. But your domestic cat relies on you to feed them. Roo's Holistic Pet Supplies has all the foods that will keep them satisfied and healthy.
What Nutrients Does Your Cat Need?
For starters, your cat is a carnivore. They need to have meat in some form: animal protein for crucial amino acids. This can be chicken, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to provide 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 supply 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 such as 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 contain feeding instructions, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's advice takes priority.
Comprehend 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 referred to 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.
