Exactly how do you know your cat is receiving the nutrition they need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each alleging that their product is more suitable than the others. One Wag (Natural Pet Supplies) in Port Washington, WI can help you cut through the confusion. We have a wide array of cat foods and can help you in selecting the one that is right for your precious pet.
Your cat is a hunter, descended from a long line of hunters. Wild cats naturally ate a good range of nutritious food, based upon what they could catch. But your domestic cat depends on you to feed them. One Wag (Natural Pet Supplies) has all the foods that will keep them happy 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 provide 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 offer 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 like fats, protein, and fiber.
Seek out the nutritional adequacy STment, which reveals 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 advice takes precedence.
Comprehend 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 described 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.
