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. Food 4 Paws in Cedar Rapids, IA can help reduce the confusion. We stock a wide range of cat foods and can assist you in selecting 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 variety of nutritious food, based on what they could catch. But your domestic cat relies on you to feed them. Food 4 Paws 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 supply energy and help absorb vitamins like A, D, B1, B2, B3, and B6. Also, some cat foods incorporate carbohydrates, which are digestible and provide energy.

Reading a Cat Food Label

Cat food companies are required to put certain 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 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.

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

Look for the nutritional adequacy statement, which explains whether the food is meant for an adult cat or a kitten.
