Just how do you know your cat is receiving the nutrition they need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each alleging that their product is superior than the others. The Urban Dog in Rochester Hills, MI can help you cut through the chaos. We stock a wide variety of cat foods and can aid you in finding the one that is just right for your precious pet.
Your cat is a hunter, descended from a long line of hunters. Wild felines naturally ate a good assortment of nutritious food, based upon what they could catch. But your domestic cat counts on you to feed them. The Urban Dog 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 necessary amino acids. This could be chicken, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to provide energy and help absorb vitamins. Vitamins such as A, D, B1, B2, B3, and B6. Minerals including iron, sodium, and chloride. On top of that, some cat foods feature carbohydrates, which are digestible and provide energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put specific 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.
Look for the nutritional adequacy STment, which tells whether the food is meant 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 advice takes precedence.
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 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.

We Love Our Customers Near Rochester Hills
We love all of our customers including the areas near our local pet supply store!
My doodles have been going to Ashley for 2 years now and we will follow her anywhere! She’s amazing with them! They’re so cute when i pick them up and my boys love her!!
I cannot recommend this place enough! They are a small business that treats you like family while still having extensive resources to help with anything your dog needs. They were even special ordering our cat food for a while! I would still be a regular customer to this day if we hadn't moved so far away... It's one of the things we miss most about the Rochester area!
The Urban Dog has helped us immensely with our dog's chronic digestive problems. We spoke to Mark in regards to nutrition planning, after going over our dog's history he recommend a plan for us to follow. The change was almost immediate! We are three weeks into the plan now and he is having normal stools for the first time since we got him almost 6 months ago. The staff are also incredibly friendly every time we stop in. Highly recommend!
