How do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they really need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each alleging that their product is superior than the others. Tailwaggers in Whitefish, MT can help reduce the confusion. We offer a wide range of cat foods and can assist you in choosing the one that is perfect for your precious pet.
Your cat is a hunter, descended from a long line of hunters. Wild cats naturally ate a wide variety of nutritious food, based upon what they could catch. But your domestic cat depends on you to feed them. Tailwaggers 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 supply energy and help absorb vitamins like A, D, B1, B2, B3, and B6. Also, some cat foods include carbohydrates, which are digestible and offer 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.
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.
Labels have feeding directions, but they're a guideline and not a "one size fits all." Your vet's guidance takes priority.
Look for the nutritional adequacy statement, which tells whether the food is meant for an adult cat or a kitten.

Great experience visiting here. Knowledgeable friendly staff. Also accommodated my request to turn the music down (I have sensory sensitivities) while I shopped. Great selection of high quality food and gear. I got several fun treats, a gift for a friend, and a new toy for my dog. Highly recommend!
The super friendly and helpful staff helped me find a cbd supplement for my Boston Terrier to help her with her anxiety. It has worked great! They also carry the Fluff & Tuff brand dog toys, which are one of the few my dog doesn't destroy.
Good variety of products and super friendly and helpful staff.
Absolutely the best pet store I have ever shopped with. Service is extraordinary, I m hooked
I’ve been shopping at Tailwaggers for years! 1st with my Jack Russell, Petey, who lived to be 17yrs old thanks to the amazing diet and support I got from all the staff. Now, I’m owned by 5yr old Jake, a Rat Terrier, Love Bug who jumps up and down if I even drive near Tailwaggers! The thing I love the most? The individual care each owner & pet gets from the staff. Tailwaggers is the ONLY shop I know where the staff helps pick out AND actually FIT Jake to perfection with just the right harness and leash. I’ve been to Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills & no pet shop there will spoil you both like this fine establishment. For treats, accessories, Dog food and more… look no further. Tailwaggers is THE BEST!
