Support Our Local Pet Store with Your Purchase of Pouched Food
How do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each alleging that their product is more effective than the others. All About Dogs & Cats in Springfield, MO can help you cut through the confusion. We store a variety of cat foods and can aid you in selecting the one that is perfect 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 relies on you to feed them. All About Dogs & Cats has all the foods that will keep them satisfied and healthy.
What Nutrients Does Your Cat Need?
For starters, your cat is a carnivore. They need meat in some form: animal protein for essential amino acids. This can 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. Also, some cat foods feature carbohydrates, which are digestible and provide energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put specific information on their labels, such as ingredients in descending order of weight, and guaranteed analysis, which tells you minimum and maximum amount of nutrients like fats, protein, and fiber.
Search for the nutritional adequacy STment, which reveals whether the food is intended 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 recommendations takes priority.
Learn about 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 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.

I seriously can’t get over how amazingly nice the people are that work here. The two gentlemen were so helpful with what I should feed my cat, and were so nice! Definitely will only be shipping here for my first babies!!!! I felt so good with my purchases and hopeful that my cat will feel better! Oh
I used the self wash to clean my dog. The place was clean and the staff was very helpful.
Very friendly, locally owned shop. Each time I've been in there I've dealt with a different sales person and EACH of them asked if they could help me. Loved it!!
Piper and I love this pet store. The owners greet us, answer my many questions, and spend one-in-one with the new member on MY family. Piper is almost 10 months old and 150 percent Airedale. The store is always amazingly clean, well stocked, and organized. Piper's favor treats include: "turkey neck" and "moo stick" and pig snout are always available. All About Dogs & Cats is a store for all your pet needs! 🥰🐾✅
