Exactly how do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they really need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each declaring that their product is better than the others. J-B Pet Supplies in Oakland, NJ can help you cut through the complication. We store a wide array of cat foods and can aid you in selecting the one that is just right for your precious pet. 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 snag. But your domestic cat relies on you to feed them. J-B Pet Supplies 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 essential amino acids. This can be poultry, 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. On top of that, some cat foods incorporate carbohydrates, which are digestible and supply energy. Reading a Cat Food Label Cat food companies are required to put specific information on their labels, such as ingredients in descending order of weight, and guaranteed analysis, which tells you minimum and maximum amount of nutrients such as fats, protein, and fiber. Search for the nutritional adequacy STment, which explains whether the food is meant for an adult cat or a kitten. Labels consist of feeding advice, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's recommendations takes lead. Learn about food descriptions. There's a big 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 described as "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!
