First things first, which nutrients does your pet need?

              • Adult cats require food that contains at least 26 percent protein and 9 percent fat. For pregnant or nursing cats, these numbers can be much higher.
              • Adult dogs need less, requiring a diet that is at least 18 percent protein and 5 percent fat.
