Healthy Kitten Formula

Purina ONE® SMARTBlend® Healthy Kitten Formula is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 149.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Food for the money! I own/operate a cat rescue & am a licensed Veterinary Technician. and have had as many as 56 cats/kittens in my home at one time. I changed to the Purina One line from Science Diet. It has saved me thousands of dollars, but an unexpected result is how great all the cats/kittens and even my personal dogs do on this food. I feed Purina One exclusively and the kittens are fantastically healthy, soft, shiny coats, clean teeth and they do so well on it. My 2 personal cats with sensitive tummies do great on the Purina One Sensitive Systems, no more barfing daily. This food got it down to 1 time a month, sometimes even less! The Healthy Metabolism is great for the cats that have been spayed/neutered and are a tad overweight. I noticed they played more, ate less and lost weight. I recommend it to all adoptive "pet parents" and friends!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cats love this I have 2 kittens that absolutely love this food. It has helped them grow healthy and sturdy. One of the kittens, was bottle fed from 2nd day of life because his mom (and litter mates) passed away. He was the runt, yet he survived and is now 7 months old and 9.5 pounds. He is a very healthy and active kitten. I contribute this to your food. My other kitten had a better start in life, but is also very healthy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from kitten loves it new kitten loves it. he's a generous kitten, though, and shares it with his cat brothers and sisters who love it, too! (much to our despair as they do not need kitten formula!) he's a little chubby at 7 months old but he's also a little piglet who plays non-stop. we've been pleased with his health and progress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cats hate other cat food except this one My cats meow when it's lunch time they can't get enough ! I have tried other kinds even more expensive kinds and they don't care for it . They have been on this food for about 11 months and as soon as they turn into adults I will be buying the same food but for adults instead of kittens

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for healthy growth We adopted 2 kittens from our local Humane Society. They recommended Purina One Kitten and we can see why. The kittens loved it and are growing in leaps and bounds. Will definitely graduate to Purina One adult when the time is right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best For growing Kittens I started using Purina Kitten Chow but noticed that they need more protein so I had to change to Purina One Healthy Kitten and they put on the weight that they needed to help them grow and develop

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Kitten food on a budget. My furkids were born on January 20th, 2012 and I brought them into my home soon after. I have no idea what the original diet was, but all I know is that they had just been weaned from their mother. I chose PurinaONE Smart Blend Kitten Formula because I've had cats before and they all used PurinaOne and thrived!My kittens have been using the product since they were several weeks old and now they are nearing in on their first birthday and their coats are extremely shiny and they have an excellent body weight to match! I attribute this to the PurinaONE and the wet food I feed them every day.Thanks for making such a great product, Purina!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality of food any kitten needs I adopted my now 1yr old kitten Tinker, who was thrown out of the window of a moving truck. She was tiny and clearly needed some TLC. Since I already had Fatty on the Indoor food I decided to put Tinker on the Kitten Formula. Tinker grew at the appropriate, healthy size even after being spade. Tinker turned a yr old on Oct 19, 2016 and she now eats the same Indoor formula as her big sister and they love it! Highly recommend this to any new kitten owner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does its job! When I adopted my 2 month old kitten he only weighed 2 lbs. He was pretty scrawny due to bouts of diarrhea while with the foster family. I had originally purchased Purina Kitten Chow and had him on that for almost a week but the vet suggested something that didn't have so many fillers which means less pooping. She mentioned Hills or Purina One. Didn't take me long to weigh an $8 bag over an almost $20 one. I decided to give Puina One Healthy Kitten a try. I mixed it with the old food as directed for about a week. Steadily the diarrhea stopped and he's pooping way less! So glad I purchased this product! He seems to love it because he meows when I refill his bowl. He's been on it straight for about 3 weeks and now has healthy looking fur.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 havegone 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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My pets come running when I feed them. I have four cats ranging from eight to 18 and feed them Purina ONE salmon. They have shiny coats and are healthy and active. . My cats are all rescues and so are my two dogs who eat Purina ONE chicken with some Purina ONE wet food. They are healthy as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feeding it to a nursing queen I work for a non-profit - we take in animals displaced by disasters (fires, floods, building collapse, etc.) in their homes - and a recent rescue response was for two cats and 10 kittens. The kittens were only 3-5 days old and the moms were quite thin. I decided to feed Purina One and I am pleased to report that "Ontario" enjoys it VERY much! She's gained weight and coat is shiny after two weeks!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 50/50 I adopted two kittens. One liked, one did not. It was the food both the rescue group and the Humane Society were feeding them and sent home a free sample. It will work until you can move them to a vet recommended food.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love Love Love this product!! I just wish it was priced more competitively. My kittens/cats love this food. It's palatable..all the neighborhood stray kitties love it. :/It provides good quality nutrition, not just calories and the kitties seem to do well on it. In fact, my house cat prefers it to his pricier, ProPlan formula which looks suspiciously like the PurinaOne ration. I will probably transition the house cat to the PurinaOne product but may have to give plain old cat chow to the local feral population.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Kitten Food I have been very satisfied with this food. I have had both dogs and cats my whole life and I have often used Purina products. I am now retired and adopted a kitten months ago from a shelter. I decided tp try her on the Healthy Kitten formula and haven't regretted it. I am about to introduce her Purina One indoor cat formula and I am confident that my cat and I will be just as pleased. I trust Purina products!

    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.
