Just how do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each declaring that their product is superior than the others. Pure Pet in Carbondale, IL can help you cut through the confusion. We store a wide variety of cat foods and can aid you in choosing the one that is just right for your precious pet. Your cat is a hunter, descended from a long line of hunters. Wild cats naturally ate a good selection of nutritious food, based on what they could snag. But your domestic cat is dependent on you to feed them. Pure Pet 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 require meat in some form: animal protein for essential amino acids. This can be poultry, 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. On top of that, some cat foods consist of carbohydrates, which are digestible and provide energy. Reading a Cat Food Label Cat food companies are required to put specific 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. Seek out the nutritional adequacy STment, which reveals whether the food is meant for an adult cat or a kitten. Labels have feeding directions, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's guidance takes lead. Know 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. In any case, look at nutrients in addition to ingredients. After all, nutrition is what your cat needs. Still have questions? Just ask us!
