Support Our Locally Owned Pet Supply Store with Your Purchase of Freeze-Dried Food for Cats
How do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they really need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each stating that their product is better than the others. Green Paws Pet Market in Plantation, FL can help reduce the confusion. We carry a wide variety of cat foods and can help you in finding 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 wide assortment of nutritious food, based upon what they could capture. But your domestic cat counts on you to feed them. Green Paws Pet Market 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 may be chicken, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to provide energy and help absorb vitamins like A, D, B1, B2, B3, and B6. Additionally, some cat foods include carbohydrates, which are digestible and provide energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put specific 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.
Understand 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 described as "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 recommendations takes precedence.
Look for the nutritional adequacy statement, which tells whether the food is meant for an adult cat or a kitten.

Wonderful caring employees at Green Paws plus my most favorite Groomer ever!
Green Paws has been the best grooming experience for my dog. He’s an anxious pup, and every time they make him feel completely comfortable. He always comes back out a happy camper and looking beautiful. 10/10 recommend.
finally found a groomer that my boy loves! I have been to about 5 groomers in the last 3 years and Bruce has always hated the experience :( I was so nervous trying someone new, but the staff at Green Paws was absolutely amazing. This was the first time I came to pick up Bruce from the groomer and he actually looked happy 😭😍 she did such a great job also! I would 1000% recommend! ♥️ Can’t wait to come back
