Support Our Locally Owned Pet Supply Store with Your Order of Dry Food for Cats
How do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they really need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each claiming that their product is superior than the others. Treats on a Leash in Ames, IA can help reduce the confusion. We offer a wide range 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 cats naturally ate a wide variety of nutritious food, based on what they could catch. But your domestic cat depends on you to feed them. Treats on a Leash 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 need meat in some form. This can be chicken, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to provide energy and help absorb vitamins like A, D, B1, B2, B3, and B6. Also, some cat foods include carbohydrates, which are digestible and provide 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 the minimum and maximum amount of nutrients like fats, protein, and fiber.
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 referred to as "chicken dinner" (or chicken formula) can be anywhere between 25 and 95 percent chicken.
Labels have feeding directions, but they're a guideline and not a "one size fits all." Your vet's recommendations takes priority.
Try to find the nutritional adequacy statement, which explains whether the food is intended for an adult cat or a kitten.
Still have questions? Just ask us! Treats on a Leash in Ames, IA has everything you need for your pet. We carry a wide variety of major brands and our qualified staff is eager to answer your questions and help you choose the best food for your cat. Stop by our store or call (515) 233-4592 for all your pet's needs.

Lovely little shop with food, treats, toys, and more for dogs and cats. Got a catnip mouse for my sister's cat, and on my way out of town got treats for my dog to apologize for being away. She loved the cookie and I think she'll like the training treats
Absolutely blown away by the whole experience! Great company, great people, great stuff! Awesome assortment of treats, leashes, toys, & bandannas. You name it, they have it. This is my $5 “yappy meal” I got today for my fur babies!
