Support Our Local Pet Store with Your Order of Raw Food for Cats
How do you know your cat is receiving the nutrition they need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each stating that their product is more effective than the others. Comfort Hill Kennel in Vergennes, VT can help reduce the confusion. We offer a variety of cat foods and can assist 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 cats naturally ate a wide assortment of nutritious food, based on what they could capture. But your domestic cat is dependent on you to feed them. Comfort Hill Kennel 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. 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 provide energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put particular 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 referred to as "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 recommendations takes precedence.
Try to find the nutritional adequacy statement, which reveals whether the food is meant for an adult cat or a kitten.

It's the 1st place where Maizey seems actually happy to go in. She leads us and pulls on her leash to go inside. The staff is very friendly and extremely professional. We do not worry about Maizey's stay at Comfort hill.
Fantastic place! I have a difficult dog and they’re so good to her. Friendly, trustworthy, and accommodating ❤️
I highly recommend Nina Daniel as a dog trainer. The first thing you will experience with Nina is her love of dogs and training. She has a tremendous depth of knowledge with extensive experience in a wide range of training and behavior situations. She uses positive training techniques and is caring and professional. I cannot recommend Nina enough!
One of the best grooming experiences our dogs have ever had!
The Comfort Hill Kennel Team is THE BEST! Our dog LOVES the caring people who look after her when we travel. She is very possessive about us, and doesn’t generally fancy other folks, but she goes into wagging paroxysms of glee when we tell her that she is going. She runs off to their open arms without a backward glance. I could feel jealous, but I am too happy that our pup feels so loved there.
