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 Guidelines

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.

Must help shedding

My biggest bug about cats in general is the shedding, but I have fed them Purina One from day one, and with five cats I have not noticed the shedding even as much as I did when I was a kid and had one cat. Mom always fed meow mix or some other cheap chow which I imagine is probably all they had back in the 70's. I have to attribute the minimal shedding to the food quality. I pay $23 for a 16 pound bag which is a lot more than if I were just to buy Regular Cat Chow, but the difference in their coats is worth every penny. I realize that the quality could always be better in as far as the filler ratio, but this does the job for me and my stooges. With 7 pets, I can't go overboard. I would sure like some coupons though. Every bit counts.

Great food!

My 3 month old kitten loves this food. I couldn't get her to eat dry food until I got this. Now she eats all of what I put down. I love that it has chicken as the first ingredient

From Kitten to Senior

Monkey Do was found in a sheld where she looked to be about a day old. She was dirty, cold and wet but had a voice on her that is how we found her. The shelter was about 400 feet from the house and we heard this crying. We found her and took her to the house where she got a bath and dried. She was not moving much but the more we warmed her the more she would move. We took her to the Vet where he said she would have a 50/50 chance of living. We fed her every 2 hours as she started to grow. We took her to the Vet every 3 months to see how she was doing and he was amazed. Now that she turn 3 months she started on Purina Kitten food and she loved it. Her fur was soft and healthy, her eyes where clear and shape. As she grew up she was placed on Purina Cat Chow. Now she lived on this product all her life. She was a very healthy cat as the Vet would say. You would have never known she was not with her mother instead of feed by a bottle at a day old. She would play and have fun with my other cats. Monkey Do lived until she turned 15 or 16 she gave us so much love as we gave her the love she needed. You could say that she lived on Purina all her live and we were so happy with her. Now I know she is in heaven eating Purina Cat Chow today. We miss her so much but I know she is happy there. Thank you for having a great product from Kitten to Adult as the rest of my cats are on your product. Thank you for making a great product for my cats.

Healthy Formula, Beautiful Results!

We have a cattery of smaller size Persians and had been through a number of brands over a few years till we got to Purina smartblend kitten formula. The last 7 years we have
gone solely on this product enjoying excellent results of hair health and happy healthy kittens and adults. Everyone eats the kitten formula and are doing so good. I have watched all the other pet food suppliers go through recalls. -Never have seen our kitten formula on a recall. Quality and Price has made this product our formula of choice with no regrets these last several years.
Sometimes there is a shortage on supply-in the 16 pound bag. So we generally try to have extra on hand. Just want to pass this on ....Thank you, Purina! John

Great food!

I have cat/kitten rescue in SC. Every cat here eats Purina one. I got statred using it because of my older cat with a sensitive tummy. We have tried Rx diets from the Vet, more expensive foods and he could not keep any of them down. The Purina One Sensitive Systems was his savior! He has fnally gained weight and no more barfing!
Every kitten here is amazingly healthy, their coat is slick & soft, they are full of energy & no tummy upset! I send every kitten off to their new homes with a bag of Purina One Healthy Kitten food. LOVE this food.

It's what you feed a kitten. Period.

I've had a lot of kittens to feed, both fosters and my own. I always choose this kitten chow when they are ready for dry food because they thrive on it. It is a bonus that it is not ridiculously expensive.

11 month old kitten still loves Purina One Kitten

This kitten was found in a field @ only 8 oz. After eye dropper feeding kitten formula for about 3 weeks, we tried Purina One Kitten Formula. He took to the food right away and now won't eat anything else. No canned tuna or any other human food. Slowly trying to switch him to adult cat food, but he is resisting.

Top notch foods for our kittens and adults

Our cattery has been using the healthy kitten formula for over 10 years, with only great results. We keep it going into adulthood, and at some point switch to the salmon/tuna . All our cats love it. They kittens start eating it by watching mom at around age 4 weeks and have no problems with it.
