Get Behind Our Community Pet Supply Store with Your Purchase of Cat Food
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. Treats on a Leash in Ames, IA can help you cut through the complication. We stock a wide range of cat foods and can assist you in choosing the one that is right for your precious pet.
Your cat is a hunter, descended from a long line of hunters. Wild felines naturally ate a good range of nutritious food, based upon what they could snag. But your domestic cat depends on you to feed them. Treats on a Leash has all the foods that will keep them satisfied and nutritious.
What Nutrients Does Your Cat Need?
For starters, your cat is a carnivore. They need meat in some form: animal protein for essential amino acids. This may be chicken, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to deliver energy and help absorb vitamins. Vitamins such as A, D, B1, B2, B3, and B6. Minerals including iron, sodium, and chloride. On top of that, some cat foods feature carbohydrates, which are digestible and supply energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put particular information on their labels, like ingredients in descending order of weight, and guaranteed analysis, which tells you minimum and maximum amount of nutrients such as fats, protein, and fiber.
Search 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.
Know 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 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.
