Exactly how do you know your cat is receiving 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 you cut through the complication. We have a wide variety of cat foods and can assist you in finding 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 range of nutritious food, based upon what they could capture. But your domestic cat relies on you to feed them. Horses & Hounds 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 crucial amino acids. This may 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. Also, some cat foods feature carbohydrates, which are digestible and offer energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put particular 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.
Search for the nutritional adequacy STment, which reveals whether the food is intended 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 guidance takes lead.
Comprehend 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 called "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.

Extremely helpful employees. Great selection of treats and toys for dogs. Fantastic prices that make it even easier to shop local.
Valley dog grooming did an excellent job on my Astro this week. Highly recommend for dog grooming.
One of the few stores locally that carries the feed for my horse (Proelite). A super well-stocked, well-laid out store with super friendly and helpful staff. I had emailed them late one evening asking if they happened to carry my feed in stock- I had struck out elsewhere, and Brianna responded first thing the next morning. I recommend them for all your pet needs, feeds, and supplies!
Clean store, amazing staff that are knowledgeable! Not a chain store! Good prices and a excellent variety.
I went in because I had a coupon for 2 free cans of catfood. I easily found the product. The store was easy to shop, nicely organised, and clean. I also bought a cat toy. The checkout associate was friendly and took my coupon with no problem. She also signed me up for a store account. Later that day I received an email for $5 off my next purchase, which was appreciated.
