How do you know your cat is receiving the nutrition they need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each claiming that their product is superior than the others. High Paw Pet Supplies in Fairplay, CO can help you cut through the complication. We have a wide array of cat foods and can assist you in finding the one that is just right for your precious pet.
Your cat is a hunter, descended from a long line of hunters. Wild cats naturally ate a good assortment of nutritious food, based upon what they could capture. But your domestic cat relies on you to feed them. High Paw Pet Supplies 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 need to have meat in some form: animal protein for necessary amino acids. This could be chicken, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to provide 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 consist of carbohydrates, which are digestible and provide energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put certain information on their labels, like ingredients in descending order of weight, and guaranteed analysis, which tells you minimum and maximum amount of nutrients like fats, protein, and fiber.
Look for the nutritional adequacy STment, which explains whether the food is intended for an adult cat or a kitten.
Labels include feeding advice, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's guidance takes lead.
Comprehend 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.

Its a great place for all types of animals and animal things. I highly recommend it if they don't have it usually they can order things.
Great place to get pet food or dog grooming. I brought my two older Australian Shepherds in sporting one of my Covid haircuts and I was so impressed! My dogs were happy, smelled great, haircuts that are perfect, and brushed! Love their service. I will be using them again!!
