How do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each saying that their product is better than the others. Pawsitively Native in Gunnison, CO can help reduce the confusion. We stock a wide range of cat foods and can assist you in selecting the one that is perfect for your precious pet.
Your cat is a hunter, descended from a long line of hunters. Wild felines naturally ate a wide selection of nutritious food, based upon what they could snag. But your domestic cat counts on you to feed them. Pawsitively Native 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 may 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 incorporate 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 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 contain feeding directions, but they're a guideline and not a "one size fits all." Your vet's guidance takes priority.
Look for the nutritional adequacy statement, which reveals whether the food is meant for an adult cat or a kitten.
