Support Our Locally Owned Pet Store with Your Order of Dry Food for Cats
How do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they require? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each saying that their product is better than the others. All Paws Gourmet Pet Store in Rye, NY can help reduce the confusion. We offer a number of cat foods and can assist you in finding the one that is just right for your precious pet.
Your cat is a hunter, descended from a long line of hunters. Wild cats naturally ate a wide assortment of nutritious food, based upon what they could catch. But your domestic cat is dependent on you to feed them. All Paws Gourmet Pet Store 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 particular 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 described as "chicken dinner" (or chicken formula) can be anywhere between 25 and 95 percent chicken.
Labels contain feeding instructions, but they're a guideline and not a "one size fits all." Your vet's advice takes precedence.
Search for the nutritional adequacy statement, which explains whether the food is intended for an adult cat or a kitten.
Still have questions? Just ask us! All Paws Gourmet Pet Store in Rye, NY has everything you need for your pet. We offer a wide variety of major brands and our educated staff is eager to answer your questions and help you choose the best food for your cat.
