Support Our Locally Owned Pet Store with Your Purchase of Grain-Free 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.

Best place to go for reptiles and info about them! Staff is awesome!!! Great prices!
Someone told me that Buckles offers a hoist for nail trims. My dog gets VERY stressed and reactive to nail trims and medications that my vet trialed with her had mediocre results at best. Buckles got her up in the hoist and it went SO WELL. She was a little nervous, of course, but behaved very well and the Buckles employee was very thorough and careful with her dark nails. Additionally, nail trims at Buckles are super-cheap... $5 without the hoist or $10 with the hoist. They also offer a great selection of treats and toys. Shopping local is very little extra effort when there are excellent places like this!
Buckles is always top notch. They've got just about everything you could want for any pet, and the staff is super knowledgeable and super friendly. You can get everything from lizard lights to horse food.
Big variety of food and toys, knowledgeable clerks, but awkward parking.
A very good business, I am so glad they are there when we need them
