The Very Best Choice of Raw Food. Curbside Pickup.
Stand Behind Our Local Pet Supply Store with Your Purchase of Raw Food
Exactly how do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they require? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each claiming that their product is better than the others. High Paw Pet Supplies in Fairplay, CO can help you cut through the complication. We have a variety of cat foods and can help you in selecting the one that is just right for your precious pet.
Your cat is a hunter, descended from a long line of hunters. Wild felines naturally ate a good range of nutritious food, based upon what they could nab. But your domestic cat is dependent on you to feed them. High Paw Pet Supplies 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 crucial 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. Also, some cat foods feature carbohydrates, which are digestible and offer 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 such as fats, protein, and fiber.
Search for the nutritional adequacy STment, which reveals whether the food is meant for an adult cat or a kitten.
Labels include feeding directions, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's suggestions takes lead.
Understand 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 called "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!!
