The Very Best Selection of Pouched Food. In-Store Pickup, Curbside Pickup.
Stand Behind Our Community Pet Shop with Your Purchase of Pouched Food
Just how do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they require? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each alleging that their product is more suitable than the others. Heiskell's Feed Depot in Visalia, CA can help you cut through the chaos. We have a variety of cat foods and can assist you in selecting the one that is perfect for your precious pet.
Your cat is a hunter, descended from a long line of hunters. Wild felines naturally ate a good range of nutritious food, based on what they could snag. But your domestic cat is dependent on you to feed them. Heiskell's Feed Depot 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 require meat in some form: animal protein for necessary amino acids. This can be chicken, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to give energy and help absorb vitamins. Vitamins such as A, D, B1, B2, B3, and B6. Minerals including iron, sodium, and chloride. In addition, some cat foods consist of carbohydrates, which are digestible and offer energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put specific information on their labels, like ingredients in descending order of weight, and guaranteed analysis, which tells you minimum and maximum amount of nutrients such as fats, protein, and fiber.
Search for the nutritional adequacy STment, which tells whether the food is meant for an adult cat or a kitten.
Labels include feeding instructions, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's advice takes precedence.
Know food descriptions. There's a distinction 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.
In any case, look at nutrients in addition to ingredients. After all, nutrition is what your cat needs.

When we first started going here about a year ago I was looking for CBD treats for our senior pup & I'll tell you even though I know about a good amount of TCH & CBD stuff I STILL had NO IDEA what I wanted/needed to buy for him like what would be best for him ....
So asking employees there for some help & I'll tell you THEY DEFINITELY HELPED! They aren't just the type to be like "oh meh these work good" NO they sit there & explain in DETAIL & Give you the MOST INFORMATION POSSIBLE!!!
They are ALL EXTREMELY KIND & PATIENT & CARING!
Before coming there to get the CBD treats our boy was miserable it seemed like nothing helped him & now almost a year later he's turned into a completely different pup!
Now I don't only go there for the CBD treats!
When I wanna buy special treats for both of our boys we definitely go there they have SO MANY OPTIONS!!! SOOOOOO MANY!!! & If you have questions about ANY of the treats they will definitely give you ALL the info you need😊
