Just how do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each alleging that their product is better than the others. Treats on a Leash in Ames, IA can help you cut through the complication. We have a wide variety of cat foods and can assist 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 cats naturally ate a good selection of nutritious food, based on what they could snag. 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 crucial amino acids. This could be poultry, 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. Also, some cat foods incorporate carbohydrates, which are digestible and supply energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put certain information on their labels, for instance, 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 tells whether the food is meant for an adult cat or a kitten.
Labels contain feeding instructions, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's suggestions takes lead.
Comprehend 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.
