New Resource from the Pet Food Institute Shows the Nutrition behind a Cat’s Diet

 

Interactive infographics demonstrate roles of essential nutrients, from whisker to paw

The Pet Food Institute (PFI), whose members make 98 percent of all U.S. pet food and treats, recently launched a new series of interactive infographics showing the ways that key nutrients found in a complete and balanced cat food recipe help our pets. The new web resource, “Nutrition from Whisker to Paw,” provides fast facts about the essential nutrition that fuels our cats’ growth and supports their body systems, as well as non-essential nutrients that can also serve important functions.

This is the second resource examining the unique nutritional needs of pets that PFI has released. In 2017, PFI released a tool called “Nutrition from Nose to Tail” that demonstrates the value of complete and balanced nutrition for dogs and how it supports their well-being.

“U.S. pet food makers work to ensure every meal has the nutrition that your cat needs,” said Dana Brooks, president and CEO of PFI. “The new ‘Nutrition from Whisker to Paw’ resource highlights the science behind a pet’s diet and why their nutrition matters.”

A “complete and balanced” pet food recipe contains more than 40 nutrients that are identified by veterinary researchers and nutritionists as essential to supporting a healthy pet, specifically: vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, and protein and amino acids. The Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) sets the nutritional profiles for dogs and cats, which serves as the basis for “complete and balanced.”

“Nutrition from Whisker to Paw” shows some of the key functions of the essential nutrients in a cat’s diet. For example, supporting healthy vision, providing energy, and promoting muscle development and maintenance. This new resource also examines other important non-essential nutrients, such as carbohydrates.

“This new resource will help pet lovers see the nutrition in a pet food recipe in action,” Brooks said. “Whether you are feeding a growing kitten or a playful adult cat, their diet plays a key role in supporting a long and healthy life.”

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
