Support Our Local Pet Supply Store with Your Purchase of Dry 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 more effective than the others. Terry's Pet Stop in Morris Plains, NJ can help reduce the confusion. We offer a wide range of cat foods and can assist you in finding 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 wide variety of nutritious food, based on what they could catch. But your domestic cat counts on you to feed them. Terry's Pet Stop 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 could be chicken, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to provide 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 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 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 referred to as "chicken dinner" (or chicken formula) can be anywhere between 25 and 95 percent chicken.
Labels contain feeding directions, but they're a guideline and not a "one size fits all." Your vet's recommendations takes priority.
Try to find the nutritional adequacy statement, which tells whether the food is intended for an adult cat or a kitten.

Terry’s is what lead to the reason I have two great rabbits (Pride and Sloth). Excellent and friendly Staff. Good deals, items, and location. They have my pets’ business.
Excellent grooming and staff knowledgeable
I love this place. My dog is so comfortable there for grooming and baths. Great place to shop and I get great ideas for problems from everyone there!
Prices are very reasonable, MUCH better than what you find at places like PetCo. I prefer to give Terry's my business over any "national" store or franchise. Great selection of dog chews and rawhides; we bring our dogs into the store and basically let their noses choose what they want. Management is very knowledgeable and always provides us with excellent information and the occasional free treat for our little one. Highly recommend!
Professional, friendly and informative staff. A clean store with high end products and convenient services. I highly recommend Terry's Pet Shop.
