Get Behind Our Community Pet Shop with Your Order of Dry Food
Exactly how do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they really need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each declaring that their product is more suitable than the others. Treats on a Leash in Ames, IA can help you cut through the complication. We stock a variety of cat foods and can help 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 felines naturally ate a good variety of nutritious food, based upon what they could capture. But your domestic cat is dependent 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 really need meat in some form: animal protein for essential amino acids. This may be chicken, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to give 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 include carbohydrates, which are digestible and provide 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 like fats, protein, and fiber.
Search for the nutritional adequacy STment, which tells whether the food is meant for an adult cat or a kitten.
Labels consist of feeding directions, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's advice takes lead.
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.
