Cat food labels

Friday, October 7, 2011

All pet food labels are regulated federally by the FDA. Many states also have their own requirements. In general, they must include nutritional value as well as feeding guidelines.  When choosing a new cat food, compare labels. They could tell you a lot. You can start by reading the guarantee analysis section of a label. It will tell you more about the fiber, protein and water that is contained in the food. The next thing that you should do is look at the list of ingredients. They’re listed in order of weight. The first few things that you read will make up the bulk of the food. If you are unfamiliar will any ingredients or terms, ask your vet. Appropriate ingredients make for a healthy food for you cat. Take the time and learn more.  Read the labels.

Remember, your pets count!
