Exactly how do you know your cat is receiving the nutrition they require? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each declaring that their product is more suitable than the others. Four Muddy Paws in Edwardsville, IL can help you cut through the confusion. We have a wide variety of cat foods and can help 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 variety of nutritious food, based on what they could snag. But your domestic cat is dependent on you to feed them. Four Muddy Paws has all the foods that will keep them satisfied and nutritious. 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 could be chicken, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to supply 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 consist of carbohydrates, which are digestible and provide 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 minimum and maximum amount of nutrients like fats, protein, and fiber. Seek out the nutritional adequacy STment, which explains whether the food is meant for an adult cat or a kitten. Labels contain feeding instructions, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's recommendations takes priority. Learn about 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 called "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!
