Just how do you know your cat is receiving the nutrition they require? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each claiming that their product is more suitable than the others. The Wishbone Pet Company in Freedom, CA can help you cut through the complication. We have a wide range of cat foods and can help you in choosing 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 good variety of nutritious food, based upon what they could nab. But your domestic cat counts on you to feed them. The Wishbone Pet Company has all the foods that will keep them happy 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 essential amino acids. This can be chicken, 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. Also, some cat foods consist of carbohydrates, which are digestible and provide energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put particular information on their labels, for instance, ingredients in descending order of weight, and guaranteed analysis, which tells you minimum and maximum amount of nutrients like fats, protein, and fiber.
Seek out the nutritional adequacy STment, which explains whether the food is intended for an adult cat or a kitten.
Labels have feeding advice, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's recommendations takes lead.
Comprehend 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 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.
