How do you know your cat is receiving the nutrition they need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each alleging that their product is better than the others. Animal Connection in Charlottesville, VA can help reduce the confusion. We carry a number 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 upon what they could snag. But your domestic cat depends on you to feed them. Animal Connection 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. This may 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. Also, some cat foods consist of carbohydrates, which are digestible and offer 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.

Understand 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 referred to as "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.
