Find The Best Food For Your Cat

Anyone who lives with cats knows they are an important part of the family, and like other family members, you likely want to take good care of them to ensure they live a long, healthy life. An important part of that is finding healthy cat food. 

Unfortunately, this can be a little more difficult than finding healthy food for yourself, unless you know what to look for in cat food, as cats have different nutritional needs than people do.

Cats require protein as their main ingredient in food. Avoid cat foods using meat byproduct meals or meat and bone meal as the main source of protein. These byproducts of meals can vary a great deal from one batch to another so they are not a reliable nutrition source for your companion.

Instead look for meat sources that are named, for example, chicken meal. A quality named meat source should be the first ingredient in a portion of healthy cat food. Often choosing brands that are promoted as "natural", or better yet organic, is a good idea.

Many quality cat foods will also add ingredients like flax seeds, probiotics, and enzymes. They will also use vitamins C and E as preservatives instead of things like BHA and BHT.

Since proper nutrition is a basis for a healthy life, choosing healthy cat food is important. It can help keep your cat's immune system strong and give her the nutritional profile she needs to help her live a healthier life.
