Stand Behind Our Community Pet Store with Your Purchase of Pouched Food
Exactly how do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they really need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each declaring that their product is better than the others. Rivertown Feed & Pet Country Store in Petaluma, CA can help you cut through the confusion. We have a wide range of cat foods and can aid you in finding 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 capture. But your domestic cat relies 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 need to have meat in some form: animal protein for crucial amino acids. This could be poultry, 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. Also, some cat foods include carbohydrates, which are digestible and provide energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put particular 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.
Look for the nutritional adequacy STment, which reveals whether the food is intended for an adult cat or a kitten.
Labels have feeding instructions, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's suggestions takes priority.
Understand 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 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.
