How do you know your cat is receiving the nutrition they need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each declaring that their product is better than the others. Z Bones Pet Mercantile in Bainbridge Island, WA can help you cut through the confusion. We have a variety of cat foods and can help you in finding 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 selection of nutritious food, based upon what they could capture. But your domestic cat is dependent on you to feed them. Z Bones Pet Mercantile 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 really need meat in some form: animal protein for essential amino acids. This could 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. Also, some cat foods incorporate carbohydrates, which are digestible and supply energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put specific information on their labels, such as ingredients in descending order of weight, and guaranteed analysis, which tells you minimum and maximum amount of nutrients like fats, protein, and fiber.
Search for the nutritional adequacy STment, which reveals whether the food is meant for an adult cat or a kitten.
Labels consist of feeding instructions, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's suggestions takes priority.
Understand 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 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.
