Exactly how do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each alleging that their product is superior than the others. Buckles Feed Depot & Pet Supply in Lafayette, IN can help you cut through the complication. We store a wide array of cat foods and can help you in finding the one that is perfect 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 is dependent on you to feed them. Buckles Feed Depot & Pet Supply 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 meat in some form: animal protein for crucial amino acids. This could be chicken, 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. Also, some cat foods include carbohydrates, which are digestible and offer energy. Reading a Cat Food Label Cat food companies are required to put specific 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. Try to find the nutritional adequacy STment, which reveals whether the food is meant 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 guidance takes precedence. Learn about 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. Still have questions? Just ask us!
