Support Our Local Pet Store with Your Purchase of Cat 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 superior than the others. Precious Paws Boutique in Myrtle Beach, SC can help reduce the confusion. We carry a wide variety of cat foods and can help you in choosing the one that is just 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 on what they could snag. But your domestic cat is dependent on you to feed them. Precious Paws Boutique 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 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.
Understand food descriptions. There's a big 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 referred to as "chicken dinner" (or chicken formula) can be anywhere between 25 and 95 percent chicken.
Labels contain feeding instructions, but they're a guideline and not a "one size fits all." Your vet's guidance takes priority.
Try to find the nutritional adequacy statement, which reveals whether the food is meant for an adult cat or a kitten.

A very cute doggie boutique. Super friendly staff!
Very nice place and the employees were very friendly and helpful.
My girls & I were SO excited to find a doggie boutique while on vacation 🥰 Precious Paws is super cute & had tons of variety. I very easily spoiled my girls here & cannot wait to come back next time! 10/10 recommend.
The best dog shop I've seen down here. The prices were cheap and they had a large toy selection and cakes for dogs. The place was so clean and the woman working was very friendly. I'll definitely be back next time I come to Myrtle Beach
