Just how do you know your cat is receiving the nutrition they need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each claiming that their product is superior than the others. Boofy's Best for Pets in Albuquerque, NM can help you cut through the chaos. We have a wide variety of cat foods and can aid you in selecting the one that is right for your precious pet.
Your cat is a hunter, descended from a long line of hunters. Wild cats naturally ate a good variety of nutritious food, based upon what they could nab. But your domestic cat relies on you to feed them. Boofy's Best for Pets 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: animal protein for necessary amino acids. This could be poultry, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to supply energy and help absorb vitamins. Vitamins such as A, D, B1, B2, B3, and B6. Minerals including iron, sodium, and chloride. In addition, some cat foods feature carbohydrates, which are digestible and offer energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put certain information on their labels, like ingredients in descending order of weight, and guaranteed analysis, which tells you minimum and maximum amount of nutrients like fats, protein, and fiber.
Try to find the nutritional adequacy STment, which tells whether the food is meant for an adult cat or a kitten.
Labels include feeding directions, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's suggestions takes priority.
Understand 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 described as "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.

Love this place! Workers are so friendly! Only place we get our fur babies food & treats
I’ve been coming here since last summer and consistently have a positive experience every time I stop by. They’re one of the only stores they sells the brand of food my dog likes and the staff is always super helpful.
Our dog is allergic to basically everything and we were having a very difficult time finding her a good food. Nichole and Scott spent quite some time helping us making sure we found the perfect food. I don’t think we will be shopping online anymore now that we have this store to help us with everything we need. Wonderful place!
Best selection and service around!
The staff are knowledgeable and resourceful. Instead of selling me expensive items I might not need, they listened, provided suggestions questions to ask the vet, and helped to lead me toward eliminating variables in my dog's condition.
