Support Our Local Pet Store with Your Purchase of Cat Food
Exactly how do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they really need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each declaring that their product is more effective than the others. Dogs Paw in Park Rapids, MN can help you cut through the chaos. We stock a wide range of cat foods and can aid you in selecting 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 good range of nutritious food, based upon what they could snag. But your domestic cat is dependent on you to feed them. Dogs Paw has all the foods that will keep them happy and nutritious.
What Nutrients Does Your Cat Need?
For starters, your cat is a carnivore. They require meat in some form: animal protein for crucial amino acids. This can be chicken, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to deliver energy and help absorb vitamins. Vitamins such as A, D, B1, B2, B3, and B6. Minerals including iron, sodium, and chloride. Additionally, some cat foods consist of carbohydrates, which are digestible and supply energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put specific information on their labels, for instance, ingredients in descending order of weight, and guaranteed analysis, which tells you minimum and maximum amount of nutrients like fats, protein, and fiber.
Look for the nutritional adequacy STment, which tells whether the food is intended for an adult cat or a kitten.
Labels have feeding instructions, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's recommendations takes lead.
Comprehend food descriptions. There's a 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.
In any case, look at nutrients in addition to ingredients. After all, nutrition is what your cat needs.

From the onset "phone call" to the completion of our 3 dogs grooming (Golden Retriever, Border Collie & Welsh Corgi) it was a warm, positive and happy experience for all of us. Our dogs are all "rescue/abuse" situations which Nicole recognized & worked beautifully around. Even though this was our 1st time we highly recommend and will be continually using their services for our needs. Thank you 😊

I have left my 12 year old Miniature Schnauzer, Annie, at Dogs Paw three times...it is so apparent how much the staff cares for her and all the doggos left in their care. I know I don’t have to worry in any way when she is in their care. This week I took her to be groomed by Theresa, who did a fabulous job❣️
They are always so good with the pets.
Lola loves going 💕
I am so thankful to have such a great boarding and grooming service nearby. They are always friendly, accommodating and tell me Lexi has such a good time there! We really appreciate you!
