Just how do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they really need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each claiming that their product is more suitable than the others. The Green K9 in Mt Dora, FL can help you cut through the chaos. We store a wide range of cat foods and can assist 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 variety of nutritious food, based upon what they could catch. But your domestic cat depends on you to feed them. The Green K9 has all the foods that will keep them satisfied 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 may 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 consist of 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 like fats, protein, and fiber.
Look for the nutritional adequacy STment, which reveals whether the food is intended 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 guidance takes precedence.
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 referred to 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.

My husband and I came to Fla. from SC To do some kayaking and our fur baby was not allowed to go with us on the river. I called and spoke with Stacy who was very helpful. Stacy got me all set up so when we came into town we would have an easy drop off. Which we did. I was nervous about leaving my dog because he has separation anxiety however when we dropped him off he seemed happy. When we picked him up they had a full report on how well he did and what his day looked like. I was very impressed, and the facility was super nice. I would definitely recommend!
Our two Rottweilers have been going to Green K-9 since we moved to Mount Dora in 2018.
We board over night and use daycare regularly. This is a First Class 5 Star operation.
Employees are Very friendly, facility is spotless clean and they take wonderful care of our two big dogs.
We can’t mention day-care or K-9 around our dogs else they go crazy wanting to go, and once there we are totally forgotten as they run to greet the staff with total happiness.

I’ve been bringing my dog to the Green K9 for almost 5 years now, 3 days a month. I have nothing but praise for the quality care he receives, the quality products I purchase for him and the outstanding personnel that make the Green K9 the place it is. Trust my comment and allow your dog the playtime/care they deserve.

I was so impressed with everyone at Green K9, they took extra care with our pups to make sure it was a positive experience. I highly recommend them!!
We absolutely love the Green K9! We have boarded our Goldendoodle multiple times and she always comes home happy, but exhausted! I love that you can do the drop in daycare for days when you may not be available to give them all the attention they need. The cameras are such a comfort, and anytime we check, the staff is always loving and playing with the dogs. It’s so nice to have a place you can trust with your fur family, andr the Green K9 is exactly that!
