How do you know your cat is receiving the nutrition they really need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each declaring that their product is more suitable than the others. Earth Pets Natural Pet Market in Gainesville, FL can help you cut through the confusion. We have a number of cat foods and can help you in selecting 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 range of nutritious food, based on what they could capture. But your domestic cat counts on you to feed them. Earth Pets Natural Pet Market 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 really need meat in some form: animal protein for crucial amino acids. This can 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. Additionally, some cat foods consist of carbohydrates, which are digestible and offer energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put certain 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.
Try to find the nutritional adequacy STment, which tells whether the food is meant for an adult cat or a kitten.
Labels contain feeding directions, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's suggestions takes priority.
Understand 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.

Great healthy products for your pets. My animals have done so much better since switching to foods recommended by Earth Pets!

Their selection is very good and the prices are extremely fair. My pup is obsessed with their bully sticks and I am too because they last!!! They are way higher quality than anything I’ve gotten from Petco/ Petsmart. I will forever come here and would 10/10 recommend checking this place out if you haven’t!
