How To Buy Best Cat Foods?
“Cats are often thought of and fed as smaller dogs,” according to Tim Julien, DVM, the chief medical officer at Paz Veterinary in Austin, Texas.
Buying cat food is just like looking at breakfast: Start with a nutritionally balanced diet.
“You need food that is complete and balanced and appropriate for the life-stage of your cat,” says Bruce Kornreich, DVM, the director of the Cornell Feline Health Center in Ithaca, New York.
He recommends looking for a nutritional adequacy label from the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO), a nonprofit organization that assesses what’s in pet food and animal feed.
