Just 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 more effective than the others. Four Muddy Paws in Edwardsville, IL can help you cut through the confusion. We store a wide array of cat foods and can help you in choosing 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 good selection of nutritious food, based on what they could catch. But your domestic cat depends on you to feed them. Four Muddy Paws 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 require meat in some form: animal protein for necessary amino acids. This may be poultry, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to give 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 consist of carbohydrates, which are digestible and offer energy. Reading a Cat Food Label Cat food companies are required to put particular information on their labels, like ingredients in descending order of weight, and guaranteed analysis, which tells you minimum and maximum amount of nutrients like fats, protein, and fiber. Search for the nutritional adequacy STment, which tells whether the food is intended for an adult cat or a kitten. Labels have feeding instructions, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's recommendations takes lead. Understand 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. Still have questions? Just ask us!
