Just how do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they really need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each alleging that their product is more effective than the others. J-B Pet Supplies in Oakland, NJ can help you cut through the confusion. We store a number of cat foods and can assist 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 nab. But your domestic cat depends on you to feed them. J-B Pet Supplies 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 really need meat in some form: animal protein for necessary amino acids. This can be poultry, 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. Additionally, some cat foods consist of 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. Search for the nutritional adequacy STment, which tells whether the food is meant for an adult cat or a kitten. Labels consist of feeding instructions, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's advice takes lead. Learn about food descriptions. There's a distinction 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!
