Cat Food Basics

Why cat food is so important.

Food is obviously very important for your cats as it helps growth and ensures that your cat remains healthy and active. Getting the right cat food is vital to the continued well being of your cat and many different foods have many different advantages and disadvantages. You may well think that any food will do and that you can just walk into your local store or supermarket and pick up the first, and probably, cheapest tin you see. However, recent developments have shown that some tinned cat foods may actually be doing your cat more harm than good.

What to do to ensure you're buying good cat food. With the worries over commercial cat food, it is important for cat owners to find a suitable answer and make sure they are buying cat food that is not only safe but also active in encouraging growth and good health in their cats. One such owner, Ann Martin, has brought about a sea of change in the pet food consumer's world. She proved that her dogs died because the food she was buying them had 20 times more than the daily recommended amount for dogs.

With more and more consumers paying greater attention to the cat food they buy, they have noticed a significant improvement in the appearance and health of their cats; skin, coat, fur and eyes invariably appear much healthier and many health problems their cats suffered before changing the food have now disappeared.

A greater awareness.

One of the most important changes that cat owners have seen is a much-improved awareness. Owners are learning that reading the label on your cat food is just as important as on your own food. Cats have similar dietary needs to humans, in so far as they require levels of certain vitamins and nutrients and that having too much of any of these can be as dangerous as getting none.

The price of health.

Unfortunately, the better the food is the more it normally costs. Even foods like Iams, which still isn't as healthy as a good cat food should be, are quite a bit pricier than cheap supermarket brands but you can't put a price on your cat's health. Do a little research and find out exactly what you should be feeding your cat, and then become accustomed to reading your cat food tins whenever you buy any.
