Support Our Local Pet Store with Your Order of Prescription Food for Cats
How do you know your cat is receiving the nutrition they need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each saying that their product is superior than the others. Chow Down Pet Supplies in Fruita, CO can help reduce the confusion. We stock a wide variety of cat foods and can help you in choosing the one that is perfect for your precious pet.
Your cat is a hunter, descended from a long line of hunters. Wild felines naturally ate a wide variety of nutritious food, based upon what they could snag. But your domestic cat counts on you to feed them. Chow Down 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 meat in some form. This could be chicken, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to provide energy and help absorb vitamins like A, D, B1, B2, B3, and B6. Also, 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, such as ingredients in descending order of weight, and guaranteed analysis, which tells you the minimum and maximum amount of nutrients like fats, protein, and fiber.
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 called "chicken dinner" (or chicken formula) can be anywhere between 25 and 95 percent chicken.
Labels contain feeding instructions, but they're a guideline and not a "one size fits all." Your vet's guidance takes precedence.
Search for the nutritional adequacy statement, which explains whether the food is meant for an adult cat or a kitten.

Very helpful staff. We did a pet scan allergy test and the manager saved the results so when I go in looking for food we know what my pup can and can’t have to calm down food allergy response of incessant itching! So grateful for these people who truly care about my pet as family.
This is the place to go instead of big box stores. The customer service was amazing! He helped us find what we purchased previously (by name in their system) and gave us lots of advice when we asked about chew toys. We love this place!
