Just how do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they really need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each claiming that their product is more effective than the others. Point Loma Pet Pantry in San Diego, CA can help you cut through the chaos. We have a wide variety of cat foods and can assist 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 on what they could nab. But your domestic cat is dependent on you to feed them. Point Loma Pet Pantry has all the foods that will keep them happy and nutritious.
What Nutrients Does Your Cat Need?
For starters, your cat is a carnivore. They require meat in some form: animal protein for essential amino acids. This can be poultry, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to deliver 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 incorporate carbohydrates, which are digestible and offer 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 explains 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 guidance takes lead.
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 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).
