Healthy Kitten Formula

Product Overview

Purina ONE® Healthy Kitten Formula starts with your kitten’s nutritional needs first to help support her optimal health, inside and out. With real chicken as the number one ingredient – and 0% fillers – all of our high-quality ingredients have a purpose. Healthy Kitten Formula is made with DHA, a nutrient found in mothers’ milk, for vision and brain development. With 46g of protein per cup, it provides the protein your kitten needs as a carnivore and helps support strong muscles, including a healthy heart. Omega-6 helps give your kitten a radiant coat and healthy skin while the crunchy kibble helps reduce plaque build-up and whiten teeth.

Feeding Instructions

Kitten Feeding Instructions
Kittens generally nibble solid foods at 3–4 weeks of age. Keep moistened Purina ONE® available to these kittens at all times. After weaning, at 6–8 weeks of age, kittens will normally eat dry or moistened food at will. If water is added, use no more than one part warm (not hot) liquid to three parts Purina ONE, changing frequently to ensure freshness. Food intake required to maintain ideal body condition will vary, depending on age, activity and environment. Monitor your kitten's weight and adjust food amount accordingly.

Purina ONE® Healthy Kitten Formula dry food may also be fed in combination with any of our Purina ONE canned cat recipes. Please follow the guidelines for recommended daily feeding amounts provided below. Remember, kittens eat small meals throughout the day. So fill your kitten's bowl with the measured amount of dry food every morning and allow her to eat at will all day rather than as a single feeding at mealtime. We suggest offering canned food at a specific time and changing it frequently to maintain freshness and moisture.

When Feeding for Reproduction
Purina ONE provides all the nutrients needed during reproduction. It is not necessary to add supplemental vitamins or minerals.  Food consumption can vary during gestation.  Feed the amount needed to maintain ideal body condition in the pregnant female. After the kittens are born, feed the nursing female all she wants to eat. Food intake can double or quadruple during lactation.

Making the Switch to Purina ONE
Although you'll be anxious to see the difference Purina ONE can make in your kitten, please allow 7 - 10 days to ease the transition from your kitten'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 the growth of kittens and reproducing females in stages of gestation and lactation. There is no need to add vitamins, minerals or other supplements, unless specifically directed by a veterinarian.

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

Pet cats/Stray Cats/Feral Cats all eat PURINA

My household has always purchased PURINA brand cat dry food. Several reasons for spending a little more money on good food. It goes further than cheapo food. Purina is a sub division of Nestle; since I am Swiss I trust Nestle. I have 3 personal cats that have been adopted as strays/feral and not wanted cat status. I have 6 outdoor kittens/teenager cats living on my back porch and all of them get fed either Purina Smart blend/Kittenfood or a combination thereof. Their coats are shiny and all kittens are healthy. And I am trying to get them through winter so I can find a home for them in spring.
I spend quite a bit of money for the food but i would rather invest in good food than making donations to an outfit for cats and dogs, where I have no control over where the money goes. Hope this will help you sell more Purina products. I am well aware of what your competitions says about Purina products.....but that to me is showbusiness!

the only choice for my cat

My cat Calista will eat nothing else. I've tried less expensive brands and more expensive. She looks at them and walks away. Then I will fill her bowl with Purina One Smartblend Healthy Kitten Formula and she comes running.

Kittens

I'm a hobby breeder of Persian cats. My kittens LOVE this kitten food. I also feed my adults Purina One. They hear that bag open and come out running. Wouldn't feed them anything but this product. They are all healthy weight.

PRECIOUS KITTY

I started PEANUT, our precious kitty, on this kitten chow to make sure she got all the benefits possible. When it came time to switch, she would not let me.
I noticed she wasn't eating like she use to. The adult food was not her preferred food. She was in the kitten chow bowl all the time. When it was empty she would find the bag and try to open it.She would even bug me til I noticed it was an empty bowl. So I filled it and it would go away in short order.
I read the value of the kitten food and the protein value convinced me she could continue with it. She has the other food but the kitten chow bowl goes first every time.
Thanks for such a great product. Just ordered the big bags from Chewy to help the budget.

Rescued kitten loves it & 23-year-old cat does, too!

I am fostering (probably will become a "foster fail" and keep her) a feral kitten, Sasha, that came to me from a feline rescue organization. She came with a terrible eye infection, fleas, and dull, patchy fur. She eats wet and dry food. After almost a month on the Purina One Smartblend Healthy Kitten Formula I have noticed a big improvement to her coat. It no longer looks dull and lifeless. (Eye meds have nearly cleared her eye.) She has so much energy that it is difficult to wear her out. Unfortunately, she always wants to play with my 23-year-old cat, Simba, who would rather be left alone. On a side note, Simba loves the kitten's food and often steals some. I highly recommend Purina One and the price can't be beat.

Good for growing kittens

Good for growing kittens. I have 2 kittens that I have rescued and both were in poor shape. Purina One has been the best kitten food for them in gaining weight, taste preference and overall quality. I highly recommend and so does my Vet.

Doctor Recommended!

My 3 boys are 19 months old and they have been on Purina One Healthy Kitten Formula from the beginning. Our vet, Dr. Gary Norsworthy, is a feline specialist known world 'round for his text books on feline care, which are used by every veterinary school in the world. When they turned one yr. old, I asked him what food he recommended I move them to. His response was surprising, but he's the guy other docs go to for innovative thinking. My boys are 100% indoor kitties. He told me he has concluded that indoor cats should remain on the Kitten Formula for life because it is higher in protein and lower in carbs, which will help keep them from becoming obese. At 19 months, they look awesome and (frustratingly) have an amazing amount of energy to expend. And they like their food just fine, thank you!

Kittens love Purina One

I brought in 4 feral kittens last year. I tried several kitten formulas but the one they liked best was Purina One. Great ingredients, comparable pricing. Can't wait to try the adult food.
