How do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they require? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each stating that their product is superior than the others. Other End of the Leash Pet Boutique & Bakery in Durham, NC can help reduce the confusion. We offer a variety of cat foods and can help you in selecting the one that is ideal for your precious pet.
Your cat is a hunter, descended from a long line of hunters. Wild cats naturally ate a wide assortment of nutritious food, based on what they could capture. But your domestic cat relies on you to feed them. Other End of the Leash Pet Boutique & Bakery 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 to have meat in some form. This can 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. In addition, some cat foods incorporate carbohydrates, which are digestible and offer energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put specific 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 described as "chicken dinner" (or chicken formula) can be anywhere between 25 and 95 percent chicken.
Labels have feeding directions, but they're a guideline and not a "one size fits all." Your vet's guidance takes priority.
Look for the nutritional adequacy statement, which reveals whether the food is meant for an adult cat or a kitten.

We had the best experience with our new puppy at The Other End of the Leash! The owner, Diane, and their employees took time to connect with us personally and connect with our pooch during a busy time. They made a great recommendation for nutritional needs for our new pup and didn’t try to up sale us. They were mindful about pricing for our needs. They have found lifelong customers in us!
Really awesome store with great service.
VERY friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful employees and owner, also. People can bring their dogs and let them pick out their purchase. The dogs had a great time, also, playing with each other. Loved parking behind store under a tree on this hot and humid Sunday afternoon.
