Support Our Local Pet Store with Your Order of Cat Food for Cats
How do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they require? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each declaring that their product is better than the others. Horses & Hounds in Granby, CT can help reduce the confusion. We offer a number of cat foods and can help 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 wide selection of nutritious food, based upon what they could catch. But your domestic cat relies on you to feed them. Horses & Hounds 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 require meat in some form. This could be chicken, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to provide energy and help absorb vitamins like A, D, B1, B2, B3, and B6. In addition, some cat foods include carbohydrates, which are digestible and provide 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 the minimum and maximum amount of nutrients like fats, protein, and fiber.
Learn about 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.
Labels contain feeding directions, but they're a guideline and not a "one size fits all." Your vet's recommendations takes priority.
Try to find the nutritional adequacy statement, which explains whether the food is intended for an adult cat or a kitten.
