Your cat is a hunter, descended from a long line of hunters. Wild cats naturally ate a good assortment of nutritious food, based on what they could capture. But your domestic cat is dependent on you to feed them. Pets Pets Pets 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 require meat in some form: animal protein for necessary amino acids. This can be chicken, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to deliver energy and help absorb vitamins. Vitamins such as A, D, B1, B2, B3, and B6. Minerals including iron, sodium, and chloride. In addition, some cat foods feature 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 minimum and maximum amount of nutrients like fats, protein, and fiber.
Look for the nutritional adequacy STment, which reveals whether the food is intended for an adult cat or a kitten.
Labels have feeding advice, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's advice takes precedence.
Comprehend food descriptions. There's a 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.
