Exactly how do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each claiming that their product is more effective than the others. Healthy Pet Products in Pittsburgh, PA can help you cut through the complication. We have a wide array of cat foods and can assist you in selecting 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 capture. But your domestic cat depends on you to feed them. Healthy Pet Products 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 supply energy and help absorb vitamins. Vitamins such as A, D, B1, B2, B3, and B6. Minerals including iron, sodium, and chloride. Additionally, some cat foods include carbohydrates, which are digestible and offer energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put particular information on their labels, for instance, 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 tells whether the food is intended for an adult cat or a kitten.
Labels include feeding directions, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's recommendations takes precedence.
Comprehend 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.
