The Best Array of Pouched Food. In-Store Pickup, Curbside Pickup.
Support Our Local Pet Shop with Your Purchase of Pouched Food for Cats
How do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each declaring that their product is better than the others. Holistic For Pets in Bradenton, FL can help reduce the confusion. We offer a wide variety of cat foods and can assist 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 cats naturally ate a wide selection of nutritious food, based upon what they could capture. But your domestic cat counts on you to feed them. Holistic For Pets 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 need to have meat in some form. This can be chicken, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to supply energy and help absorb vitamins like A, D, B1, B2, B3, and B6. 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 certain information on their labels, such as ingredients in descending order of weight, and guaranteed analysis, which tells you the minimum and maximum amount of nutrients like fats, protein, and fiber.
Learn about 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.
Labels include feeding instructions, but they're a guideline and not a "one size fits all." Your vet's advice takes priority.
Search for the nutritional adequacy statement, which explains whether the food is intended for an adult cat or a kitten.

Having a new puppy can be overwhelming! Am I doing the right thing, should I be doing more?!?! Gregory at Holistic for Pets has made my concerns, fears and doubt all go away. He is so knowledgeable and you can feel his passion in each encounter with him. Holistic for Pets has given me the peace of mind knowing I am on the right path and setting my dog up for the healthiest future possible. I have never felt rushed with all my questions and visits. Definitely our new one stop shop for our pup! Thank you!!
After searching nearly every local pet store, I was absolutely grateful to find Holistic for Pets and meet with manager, Gregory, to discuss switching to healthier options for our dogs and cats! His knowledge and understanding is very valuable and exactly what we needed to feel assured that they have our pet’s best interest at heart. ❤️ 🐾 We have happy healthy pets now! Emma and Gypsy especially thank you!! I definitely recommend this store.
I adopted my parents American Eskimo. Due to their age, they were unable to properly take care of him. I noticed he had a very sensitive stomach and I tried every dog food I could think of. My neighbor suggested I stop by Holistic For Pets. They had samples of different dog food and figured I had nothing to lose. My dog loved and ate all of the sample from the brand Homme. More importantly, had NO issues with keeping food down and finally had normal stool! Without the samples (or suggestion from my neighbor), I don't think I would've been able to find food that agreed with him. I've been a loyal customer ever since (going on 3 years).
I love the service and everyone. And their products they carry are top notch.
Gergroy and the staff is very knowledgeable and help me every time I go in, side note my son loves getting stickers before we leave.
