How do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they require? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each saying that their product is more effective than the others. Wags And Purrs Specialty Pantry in Melbourne, FL can help reduce the confusion. We stock a wide variety of cat foods and can assist you in finding 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 wide selection of nutritious food, based on what they could catch. But your domestic cat depends on you to feed them. Wags And Purrs Specialty Pantry 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 need to have meat in some form. This can be chicken, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to provide energy and help absorb vitamins like A, D, B1, B2, B3, and B6. In addition, some cat foods include carbohydrates, which are digestible and provide 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.

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.

Labels contain feeding directions, but they're a guideline and not a "one size fits all." Your vet's guidance takes priority.

Search for the nutritional adequacy statement, which reveals whether the food is intended for an adult cat or a kitten.
