Get Behind Our Community Pet Store with Your Purchase of Grain-Free Food
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 superior than the others. Holistic For Pets in Sarasota, FL can help you cut through the confusion. We store a 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 felines naturally ate a good selection of nutritious food, based upon what they could capture. But your domestic cat depends on you to feed them. Holistic For Pets has all the foods that will keep them satisfied and nutritious.
What Nutrients Does Your Cat Need?
For starters, your cat is a carnivore. They need meat in some form: animal protein for essential amino acids. This may be chicken, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to deliver energy and help absorb vitamins. Vitamins such as A, D, B1, B2, B3, and B6. Minerals including iron, sodium, and chloride. Also, some cat foods consist of carbohydrates, which are digestible and provide energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put particular information on their labels, for instance, ingredients in descending order of weight, and guaranteed analysis, which tells you minimum and maximum amount of nutrients such as fats, protein, and fiber.
Search for the nutritional adequacy STment, which tells whether the food is meant for an adult cat or a kitten.
Labels have feeding directions, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's recommendations takes priority.
Learn about 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 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've been struggling trying to find something for my dog's complicated dietary needs. I've been to several large pet retailers and none of the associates were too knowledgeable or helpful. After reading some reviews for this store, I decided to check them out today. They were awesome! They patiently listened to the situation and gave me a ton of options. I really felt like they cared.I will definitely come back here. It is refreshing to have such awesome customer service. 😊
Whenever I need anything for my little furbabies, I always go to Holistic for Pets! Trustworthy, knowledgeable and super friendly!

Friendly and helpful staff plus high quality foods. So glad our vet recommended you!
My daughter and I went in to look for "Ted's Aloe 4 Pets" which we were only able to find it and Red Barn Flea Market.
They assisted me in finding something for our elderly dogs arthritis.
The woman that helped us was amazing. Such a sweet, kind, true animal lover!! The whole staff seems amazing!
Yesterday I visited your store for the first time and I had Kelly help me. Kelly was most knowledgeable in helping me and advising me on choosing a good kibble for my dog and recommending the best raw meat considering he has allergies. I did not know about “hot meats” versus “cool meats”. Cool meats will help his itchiness be more tolerable. Thanks Kelly for that info. I was also in need of some high end kibble for treats and was wanting N&D food that my dog has back home in Canada. Holistic Pet Store had the brand but not a small bag I needed for the time I am here. She helped me out with some sample bags.
Thank you Kelly for sharing you knowledge and your willingness to help me in getting the best food for my dog that would have the best results considering his skin allergies.
Your store is beautiful with great products. I wish you
continued success. I look forward to visiting again before returning home.
