Exactly how do you know your cat is receiving the nutrition they require? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each claiming that their product is more effective than the others. Treats on a Leash in Ames, IA can help you cut through the chaos. We stock a variety of cat foods and can help you in finding the one that is perfect for your precious pet.
Your cat is a hunter, descended from a long line of hunters. Wild cats naturally ate a good assortment of nutritious food, based on what they could catch. But your domestic cat counts on you to feed them. Treats on a Leash 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 need meat in some form: animal protein for necessary amino acids. This may be chicken, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to supply energy and help absorb vitamins. Vitamins such as A, D, B1, B2, B3, and B6. Minerals including iron, sodium, and chloride. Additionally, some cat foods feature carbohydrates, which are digestible and provide 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.
Look for the nutritional adequacy STment, which explains whether the food is intended for an adult cat or a kitten.
Labels have feeding advice, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's recommendations takes lead.
Understand 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.
