How do you know your cat is receiving the nutrition they really need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each declaring that their product is superior than the others. Rivertown Feed & Pet Country Store in Petaluma, CA can help you cut through the complication. We have a number 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 felines naturally ate a good variety of nutritious food, based upon what they could catch. But your domestic cat is dependent on you to feed them. Rivertown Feed & Pet Country Store 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 necessary amino acids. This may be poultry, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to give 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 include carbohydrates, which are digestible and offer energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put certain information on their labels, like 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 tells whether the food is intended for an adult cat or a kitten.
Labels contain feeding advice, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's suggestions takes lead.
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 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.
