Feeding Guidelines

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.

Salmon is her Favorite!

I feel good about feeding One to my cat, Kabuki. It's nutritious and evidently flavorful as she loves it! Hubby has bought other brands on sale and we end up giving it away, because she won't eat it. Thanks Purina!

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!

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.

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.

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.

Yummy! Need more!

My cat absolutely loves this food, the only down side is that they don't carry it at my local Walmart, but I don't mind driving a little more to buy this! My two cats really love Purina products, and I will never change to another brand, this is absolutely the best budget cat food out their! She doesn't eat anything else, I really feel better knowing my cats eat a healthy meal for them.

Healthy Metabolism helps solve weight problem

Our kitty Smidge grew up to earn her nickname of Moo. Our vet said that weighing in at 20 lbs. was endangering her health. She said to look for a food with a large percentage of protein, low in fat, and make sure it contained taurine and L-Lysine which are necessary for a cat's good health. I looked through every cat food available at the market, and Purina One, Healthy Metabolism met all the qualifications. She also put her on a feeding schedule and measuring amount. After a two month period, she had lost 2 lbs. which is a good amount for a cat. She enjoys the taste and is getting more active. Is able to do physical activities that she had not been able to do. Her fur is shiny and her eyes bright. The vet is very pleased.
