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.

Absolute best Cat Food on the Market

I have two cats, and they both cannot get enough of this cat food. One of my cats was up to 17lbs before using this cat food. After switching, my cat is now down to a healthy weight of 14lbs. The vet was very happy to see them healthy and losing weight. This food is puurrfect!

Funny Howard and Purina

My Cat Howard is so funny, once he hears the sound of me picking up the Purina One Cat bag... he runs and sits next to his bowl waiting for the little morsel to hit his dish. Once that 1st little morsel hits the bowl he digs right in. I buy this product for 3 reasons: 1. because my vet recommended that this was a very good product. 2. Howard the cat loves it. 3. Howards fur looks so healthy and I contribute that to Purina.

Excellent results for our cats

One of our cats needed a food due to his age and size. Being also a finicky eater we found that he loved Healthy Metabolism. Sadly after two + years, the only local store selling it. Walmart stopped stocking it in all of their stores within 100 miles. Recently I found Healthy Metabolism at Big Lots stores, so Jax is happy. Thanks for replying to my previous inquiry looking for the food availability.

Excellent dry food for Diabetic Cats

My three cats, one of whom is diabetic and receives insulin shots twice daily, love this food. It is higher in protein and lower in carbs than any other dry food I have found. My diabetic 12 year old male, loves his crunchies and wants them along with his wet food. All three of them are thriving on this food.

5 out of 5 of our cats agree

We have 5 cats, 4 are ours, and 1 is a stray that has adopted us. Our cats love the Purina One Smartblend Healthy Metabolism cat food. The stray had a litter of kittens at our home and was so skinny after they were born. We raised the kittens on Purina One Kitten chow and the rest of the cats ate some of that also. But they all gained some weight, which they didn't need. After the kittens were adopted out to loving homes, We switched over to the Healthy Metabolism and our cats became kittens again. More energy, much more playful and the Mama cat has gained weight and looks so healthy now. (We also got her fixed). Their coats are so soft and shiny. All varieties of Purina One are excellent!

My cats love it!

My female cat is an extremely picky eater. I was feeding her some high quality and expensive cat food and I tried this cat food and she was hooked! On the old food she was fat, lazy, and didn't do anything. On Purina one she got that kitten spark back. She has much more energy and lost some of that belly fat. I feed this to my kitten too and he loves it!!! I also feed Purina one to my dogs and they can't get enough of it!!!
