Support Our Locally Owned Pet Shop with Your Order of Cat Food for Cats
How do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they really need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each saying that their product is better than the others. Auggie's Pet Supplies in Fort Lauderdale, FL can help reduce the confusion. We offer a variety of cat foods and can help you in selecting 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 assortment of nutritious food, based upon what they could capture. But your domestic cat depends on you to feed them. Auggie's Pet Supplies 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 may 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. Additionally, some cat foods incorporate 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 the minimum and maximum amount of nutrients like fats, protein, and fiber.
Learn about 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 called "chicken dinner" (or chicken formula) can be anywhere between 25 and 95 percent chicken.
Labels include feeding instructions, but they're a guideline and not a "one size fits all." Your vet's guidance takes precedence.
Try to find the nutritional adequacy statement, which tells whether the food is meant for an adult cat or a kitten.
