Just how do you know your cat is receiving the nutrition they really need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each saying that their product is better than the others. Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming Katy in Katy, TX can help you cut through the complication. We have a variety of cat foods and can assist 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 cats naturally ate a good variety of nutritious food, based upon what they could catch. But your domestic cat relies on you to feed them. Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming Katy 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: animal protein for crucial amino acids. This may 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. On top of that, some cat foods feature 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 explains whether the food is intended for an adult cat or a kitten.
Labels include feeding advice, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's advice takes lead.
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 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.
