Support Our Community Pet Shop with Your Order of Canned Food
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 better than the others. Bow Wow & Woofs in Blaine, WA can help you cut through the confusion. We have a variety of cat foods and can aid you in choosing the one that is right 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 on what they could catch. But your domestic cat counts on you to feed them. Bow Wow & Woofs 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 require meat in some form: animal protein for crucial amino acids. This can be poultry, 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. 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, like ingredients in descending order of weight, and guaranteed analysis, which tells you minimum and maximum amount of nutrients such as fats, protein, and fiber.
Look for the nutritional adequacy STment, which reveals 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 guidance takes priority.
Comprehend food descriptions. There's a distinction 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.

I am a cat owner; so I was deceived by the name of this store. HOWEVER, it is one of the best cat toy stores I have been to so far. They had a variety of high quality and perfectly designed options. The team member that was there was very helpful, professional and kind! But of course, it has a plethora of dog items! You will not be disappointed! Love this store
Heather is kind, knowledgeable, and the store has everything someone might need for their pup (and maybe even their cat). I always go here for my dog’s treats and collars and used to buy her food there, before we had to start buying prescription food. I highly recommend shopping here!
This little shop is surprisingly well stocked for such a small space. The variety suffers just a little because of this but not enough to make it a big deal. Just don't walk in expecting to choose from 30 different colors for each leash design. That being said the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend this for any who find themselves in the area and need to get something for their furry family.
This little doggie boutique is adorable. I trust every product in the store and the owner is INCREDIBLY knowledgeable. She has helped me out many times with all of my dogs weird .. let's say health quirks.
Love. If you want only the best for your pet, this is the place.
