For starters, your cat is a carnivore. They need to have meat in some form: animal protein for essential amino acids. This can be chicken, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to give 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 include carbohydrates, which are digestible and provide energy. Reading a Cat Food Label Cat food companies are required to put specific 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 explains whether the food is meant for an adult cat or a kitten. Labels have feeding directions, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's guidance takes lead. Comprehend 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 referred to 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!
