Support Our Locally Owned Pet Store with Your Purchase of Cat Food for Cats
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 effective than the others. Buckles Feed Depot & Pet Supply in Lafayette, IN can help reduce the confusion. We offer a wide array of cat foods and can help 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 cats naturally ate a wide selection of nutritious food, based on what they could snag. But your domestic cat is dependent on you to feed them. Buckles Feed Depot & Pet Supply 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. This could 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. Also, 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, 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.
Understand 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 referred to as "chicken dinner" (or chicken formula) can be anywhere between 25 and 95 percent chicken.
Labels have feeding instructions, but they're a guideline and not a "one size fits all." Your vet's advice takes precedence.
Search for the nutritional adequacy statement, which explains whether the food is intended for an adult cat or a kitten.

Support locally owned business. Easily the best pet store I've frequented. Several times I've needed something for my pet that they don't carry and they've not only ordered it for me but it is now part of their stock.
I have mixed feelings about this place just because I visit so often. First off is their pet food is amazingly priced. Way better than the name brand stores. They have a wife variety of animals and have some rescues sometimes. So if you are looking for a pet rat I would check and see if they have any rescues you can take home. They have a rewards system for every 5 bags of food your 6th one is free. They have stuff for cats dogs, amphibians, reptiles, and arachnids. But also for birds, rodents, and a few other interesting animals. The only problem that I have ever really had is 1 the smell of the room where they keep all the feeder rats and the rescues. But I know they clean it regularly. And one time I got a rat from there and they said it was a boy. Without checking I got all the way home and found out it was a girl and had to come back and exchange it.
Excellent place for reptiles, feeders & other odds and ends for your pets that your local pet stores don't carry!
