Just how do you know your cat is receiving the nutrition they need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each declaring that their product is superior than the others. Barkley’s Pet Market in Rocky Mount, VA can help you cut through the chaos. We stock a variety of cat foods and can assist 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 felines naturally ate a good assortment of nutritious food, based on what they could capture. But your domestic cat depends on you to feed them. Barkley’s Pet Market 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 to have meat in some form: animal protein for essential amino acids. This can be poultry, 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. On top of that, some cat foods incorporate carbohydrates, which are digestible and provide 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 like fats, protein, and fiber. Seek out the nutritional adequacy STment, which explains whether the food is intended for an adult cat or a kitten. Labels consist of feeding instructions, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's recommendations takes lead. Know 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. In any case, look at nutrients in addition to ingredients. After all, nutrition is what your cat needs. Still have questions? Just ask us!
