Feeding Instructions

Adult Cat Feeding Instruction
Fill your cat's bowl with the recommended measured amount of dry food every morning and allow your cat to eat on a "free choice" basis throughout the day, rather than as a single feeding at mealtime. Recommended daily feeding amounts are also provided for feeding a combination of dry and canned Purina ONE SMARTBlend Healthy Metabolism. If you choose to offer the canned food it is better to offer it at a specific time and change it frequently in order to maintain freshness and moisture.

Food intake required to maintain an ideal body condition will vary, depending on age, activity and environment. Monitor your cat's weight and adjust food amount accordingly.

It's Not For All Cats
Purina ONE Healthy Metabolism is specifically formulated for adult cats. If you have a kitten, or a pregnant or nursing cat, feed Purina ONE SMARTBlend Healthy Kitten Formula. If you choose to feed a combination of dry and canned food please do not mix and match formulas but ONLY feed the Purina ONE SMARTBlend Healthy Metabolism dry and canned as they are specially formulated to complement each other.

Making the Switch to Purina ONE
Although you'll be anxious to see the difference Purina ONE® can make in your cat, please allow 7-10 days to ease the transition from your cat's current food. Each day, simply feed a little less of the previous food and a little more Purina ONE until you're feeding Purina ONE exclusively. This gradual transition will help avoid dietary upsets.

No Supplements Necessary
Purina ONE provides 100% complete and balanced nutrition for maintenance of adult cats. There is no need to add vitamins, minerals or other supplements, unless specifically directed by a veterinarian.

Fresh Water, Proper Diet &amp Veterinary Care
Be sure to provide fresh water in a clean container for your cat daily. Proper diet, exercise and veterinary care are the best ways to keep your cat healthy. If your cat hasn't had a check-up in the past year, please make an appointment today.

It does what it says!

I have two adorable calico sisters who will be two years old July 25th. Jinxy is your original gorgeous white, orange, and black calico while her sister, Gypsy is a beautiful Tortoiseshell. Jinxy is built with "big bones" while her sister has a delicate frame. They both had been neutered before we adopted them from a local rescue. When we got them they didn't have the saggy belly that comes from being neutered. Since my last cat, Tinkerbell, had disappeared, I kept them as strictly indoor cats. Since my previous cat went outdoors and climbed trees and all kinds of fun cat stuff (bonus she was immune to getting fleas), I was not accustomed to cats getting fat so easily. I tried indoor formulas, but they still maintained their weight. I was browsing around for something new that might help and came across this one. I have bought two or three of the big bags (16lbs I think) and it has made a difference. My Gypsy girl has a slender figure and my Jinxy pie has just the right amount of curvature for her frame. They have maintained their healthy weight. Their bellies do hang still but only because of their extra skin. We always have the food available for them since our days can get hectic sometimes and we are forgetful. I haven't looked into the wet food to see if they like it yet. They tend to like the gravy covered wet food and are quite picky in that department.

Happy Pets

I have used this food for a couple months now, and extremely happy with it. I have cats that have a hard time keeping food down and this food seems to agree well with them and they love the taste. I also feed my dog Purina One and she loves it.

Great taste. Even better results!

We have three rescue cats. One has been diagnosed with chronic digestive issues. We tried a wide array of cat foods in order to find one that all three would enjoy the taste of, while still addressing the needs of our guy with the stomach issues.

No matter what we tried, we could not find a food that all three enjoyed and that actually seemed to help with digestive issues.

We saw this particular blend of Purina One and gave it a try.
Within 2 weeks of feeding this on a daily basis, our guy with the stomach issues was experiencing better results in the litter box. All three cats displayed a leaner silhouette as well! This is the first food that all three of our cats have enjoyed eating. Prior to this, they became disinterested in their dry food every few months.

I would recommend this food to any one!

My cats love it!

I recently received a free sample of this and after feeding it to my cats I just had to write a review. It has been a long time since my cats have reacted the way they have to this food. I swear they think they are treats! I've had to hide the food to keep them out of it. I did not receive enough of a sample to tell if it actually helped with the weight but I will definitely be buying them a bag!

It works!

I have two cats and one needs to lose weight while the other needs to gain. Big surprise, the big guy loves to eat. Both cats had previously been on Purina One (Salmon formula) and all of us were happy.

The vet wanted the big guy to switch to a higher protein prescription diet for big bucks, but I found the healthy metabolism diet with a similar nutritional profile and it was the same price as the rest of the Purina One line. The transition was very easy since it was the same brand. He loves the new food. Since the other cat gets very similar food they are both good about staying at their own bowls.

Six months later he is down from 13.9 to 12.3 lbs. Yes, he still begs for food, but he is energetic, playful and I've even noticed that his dandruff is much better. Hopefully he will be at the goal, 11lbs, at the next vet check.
