Exactly how do you know your cat is receiving the nutrition they need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each saying that their product is better than the others. Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming in Savannah, GA can help you cut through the chaos. 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 felines naturally ate a good variety of nutritious food, based on what they could snag. But your domestic cat counts 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 really need meat in some form: animal protein for necessary amino acids. This may be chicken, 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. Also, some cat foods incorporate carbohydrates, which are digestible and supply 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.
Seek out the nutritional adequacy STment, which tells whether the food is intended for an adult cat or a kitten.
Labels include feeding instructions, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's advice takes priority.
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.
