Stand Behind Our Community Pet Store with Your Purchase of Dry Food
Exactly how do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they require? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each declaring that their product is better than the others. Point Loma Pet Pantry in San Diego, CA can help you cut through the confusion. We stock a wide range of cat foods and can assist you in finding the one that is right for your precious pet.
Your cat is a hunter, descended from a long line of hunters. Wild cats naturally ate a good selection of nutritious food, based upon what they could snag. But your domestic cat depends on you to feed them. Point Loma Pet Pantry has all the foods that will keep them satisfied and nutritious.
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 may be chicken, 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. On top of that, some cat foods include carbohydrates, which are digestible and offer energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put particular information on their labels, for instance, 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 tells whether the food is meant for an adult cat or a kitten.
Labels contain feeding instructions, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's recommendations takes lead.
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 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.

Raw food is the way to go
I cannot rave about a business enough! I always feel welcomed when I walk in. The staff is very knowledgeable and has given me FANTASTIC advice on multiple occasions. They stock the high quality dog food (raw and kibble) and treats (frozen goat milk is my dog's favorite).
