How do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each declaring that their product is more suitable than the others. Southern Barker in Lexington, KY can help you cut through the complication. We have a variety of cat foods and can aid you in finding the one that is perfect for your precious pet. Your cat is a hunter, descended from a long line of hunters. Wild felines naturally ate a good selection of nutritious food, based on what they could nab. But your domestic cat is dependent on you to feed them. Southern Barker 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: animal protein for crucial amino acids. This could 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. In addition, 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, like 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 tells whether the food is intended for an adult cat or a kitten. Labels have feeding instructions, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's advice takes precedence. Understand 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 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!
