Support Our Locally Owned Pet Store with Your Order of Frozen Food for Cats
How do you know your cat is receiving the nutrition they need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each claiming that their product is more effective than the others. Pet Playhouse in Plantsville, CT can help reduce the confusion. We carry 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 felines naturally ate a wide selection of nutritious food, based on what they could capture. But your domestic cat counts on you to feed them. Pet Playhouse 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 supply energy and help absorb vitamins like A, D, B1, B2, B3, and B6. Additionally, some cat foods incorporate carbohydrates, which are digestible and offer energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put specific 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.
Learn about 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.
Labels contain feeding directions, but they're a guideline and not a "one size fits all." Your vet's guidance takes precedence.
Try to find the nutritional adequacy statement, which reveals whether the food is intended for an adult cat or a kitten.
