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. Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming in Savannah, GA can help you cut through the confusion. We have a wide range of cat foods and can assist you in finding the one that is 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 depends on you to feed them. Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming 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 essential amino acids. This could 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. Also, some cat foods consist of carbohydrates, which are digestible and offer energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put certain information on their labels, for instance, ingredients in descending order of weight, and guaranteed analysis, which tells you minimum and maximum amount of nutrients like fats, protein, and fiber.
Seek out the nutritional adequacy STment, which tells whether the food is meant for an adult cat or a kitten.
Labels contain feeding directions, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's advice takes precedence.
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.
