Rated 5 out of 5 by from Healthy beautiful coats on all three long haired kitty's About 7 years ago I brought a cat home from a friend of mine from work. She's a long haired grey tiger calico named "Gismo". I asked my friend what she was feeding her and she said "just what ever was on sale. " I always feed my other cat "Spider's" Purina One so that's what I started feeding to "Gismo". With in 3 months both my kids and I all noticed that Gismo's coat had tripled in thickness and so much softer since we had got her. There's no question about it, I know it was the change in her diet to Purina One. After that I have never consided feeding my cats or dogs anything else. My other cat "Spiders" is now almost 16 years old and is still in excellent health, Gismo is 8 years old now and my new little boy "Desi" is about 3 years old. All of them are long haired with soft beautiful healthy coats. Over the years I have feed them different types of Purina One and they all always love it. I have finally settled on Healthy Metabolizm due to they're all getting slightly overweight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Healthy Metabolism This is great food for our threes cats. They have more energy, softer coats and has slimmed down our girls who are 7 and 10 in age. It is easy to give to them and since their baby brother is over a year, he enjoys it too. We do not give any other food brand to them. Just Purina brand. They have been quite healthy do in part to this food. Thanks so much for caring about our " fur babies."

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No More "Issues" I do a bit of TNR #Trap, Neuter, Return# with stray and feral cats and this summer I had an injured one whom I kept after taking care of her for so long. The "issue" was her stool. It was not diarrhea--she only went once daily-- but always too soft. I tried brand after brand with no luck. Every day, at litter cleaning time, the same...I finally started reading and comparing ingredients listed on labels. I knew cats require a lot of protein and that rice 'binds' so I tried Purina One's Chicken and Rice formula first, thinking the rice might do it. No such luck.So, although it has slightly less protein, I switched to Healthy metabolism--in part because she had also gained some weight and this one has less calories. Anyway, about three days later...SUCCESS! Although I have since switched to the Naturals formula, I would definitely recommend this to anyone with a cat who has similar "issues."The main reason I switched to Naturals is the cost. I have five indoor cats and a colony outside of seven to ten #depending on who shows up# and it can get rather costly. I also like the fact that Naturals has no additives.Nicely done, Purina! Now let's see the same or similar done for your other lines #Friskies, regular Purina Cat Chow, et al.#.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Has helped my overweight cat shed a few pounds! My tuxedo kitty, Figaro, has always struggled with his weight. He LOVES to eat! On every other "Healthy Weight" food, I would feed him the recommended amount only for him to gain weight, still be hungry, or BOTH! I would cut back the portions only to end up with a very loud and needy kitty! This food seems to keep him full and he enjoys the taste! He gets a can of the Healthy Metabolism food with a quarter cup of dry food at night, and half a cup of straight dry in the morning! This routine actually seems to help keep him trim and full and I don't get woken up by my hungry kitty alarm clock at 5 am anymore! Thank you Purina One!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Junk Food For Cats My cat loves this food. Unfortunately, it's junk food for cats. Of the first six ingredients, only ONE is a species-specific protein (turkey).The rest - CORN GLUTEN, POULTRY BY-PRODUCT MEAL, SOYBEAN MEAL, BREWERS RICE, CORN - are pure garbage for cats and have no business being in your pet's food.Having now found this out I'm going to have to wean him off this food and try to find a grain-free food that will be good for him and he will love.I've had some luck with Merrick's Purrfect Bistro (Salmon) Grain Free.Do your cat a favor and find a better (the best) food for him/her. Help him be healthy throughout his life. You'll save your kitty a lot of agony with fewer visits to the Vet, and you'll save your wallet the same. And don't be fooled by Veterinarian diets like Hills and Royal Canin. Again, the ingredient list is horrible.Purina needs to stop making junk food for cats and dogs. It's unconscionable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Changed Food Been Using For Years Our local store ran out of our favorite brand of food. We shopped for another and found Purina One Smart Blend Healthy Metabolism, I liked the high protein content over other cat foods. Our boys (both rescue cats) took to the food very easily after a week of gradually changing it. So far, what we have noticed, is the litter box odor is gone or so slight we can't even tell at all as compared to the other food. My wife pointed this out to me first. Secondly, we have noticed activity levels has increased a bit, Makes sense that higher protein levels will help lose or maintain weight. It worked for me when I wanted to drop a few pounds. In a few months I will revisit and do a updated review. We are very pleased so far with this product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cats love it! They can't keep down any other food! They've looked healthier since they started eating this, along with some of the canned products. The quality of their lives are much better now and they're all acting like kittens!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredibly, both my cats love this! I have two cats, rescues, with diet and stomach issues. Amazingly, both cats love this food and both can easily digest it. This is the first and only food they will both eat.I am buying a second bag today. The protein content is what drew me to try this brand. My cats seem to have more energy and their coats are getting softer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from enjoyment I couldn't get the Vibrant Maturity that my cats were used to, so I picked up Healthy Metabolism. My 13-year-old cat stopped eating her soft food to try the new stuff. There was still juice and tomatoes and a carrot left in her dish, but she wasn't interested. In a few hours the new food was gone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All of my cats are benefitting I started using Purina One Healthy Metabolism for my three cats because they are all indoor-only and currently live in an apartment. Two are senior and one is age three, so I mix this with the Purina One Vibrant Maturity. My 15-year-old has maintained a normal weight, my 12-year-old has lost weight and is more active and almost normal weight, and my youngest is losing his paunch. They are all more active and are healthier than they were on any other food or combination.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Food While at my vet's picking up supplies for my kitty, I overheard her recommending PurinaOne's new Healthy Metabolism food, saying that she had checked the ingredients and nutritional information and found it to be higher quality and more beneficial than quite a few of the higher priced or even prescription foods! My one cat is diabetic but refuses her prescription food. So I tried the Healthy Metabolism. Both cats love the dry food (I have not yet found a retailer that carries the wet, but when I do, I plan to get some!). And, both cats are doing great on it. I especially like that it has a very small kibble, which is easier for my older cat (aged 17+) to handle. Good quality product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Cat and a happy reunion When Bagheera (neutered 5yr old male) joined our family in 2012, we instantly fell in love with our adorable, affectionate, yet hefty boy. He's a fussy eater and doesn't like wet food at all, so we wanted to make sure his diet provided the best balance of protein to calorie ratio. Healthy Metabolism does just that and is his favorite food!I have a really great story to tell you about how this food helped us to reconnect with Bagheera too. On October 18, 2014, Bagheera got lost! We donated some furniture to a local charity and didn't realize that Bagheera had hitched a ride inside one of the sofa's that was being moved, until we stopped and caught a glimpse of him running off, terrified. Needless to say, day after day, for weeks and weeks, we returned to that area to search for him, to no avail. Despite putting up signage locally, posting ads online, and alerting all vet clinics in the area, six months after his disappearance, we'd completely given up hope of ever seeing him again. We missed him so much!Well, exactly one year, one month and one day after he was lost, we got a phone call from a local vet clinic saying that one of their favorite clients had brought our Bagheera in that morning and they scanned his microchip to get our information - we could pick him up that afternoon! We were overwhelmed with joy! After getting him home, Bagheera was very unsure. So I left him to sniff around and went to get him a bowl of Purina One Healthy Metabolism food. I'd been told that where he'd been living he had been eating a lesser quality food brand and he was at least 3lbs heavier, so I made sure I got our favorite food on my way to the vet's clinic. Well, when he saw me with the bowl of food, his face was pleased but he was still unsure of where he was. When I put that bowl down in front of him, he sniffed its contents, and at that moment I could see recognition click on his face! Bagheera instantly started purring so loudly, he couldn't decide whether he wanted to eat the food or smooch all over me, he was so happy! It was such a sweet moment, I will never forget it. We are so lucky to have our boy back! Him smelling his favorite food helped him to realize that he was finally home, and he's been so happy since then. Thank you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality food for the right price & great for young cats! I have three cats that are all 1-2. My vet recommended I switch my 9 month old kitten to adult food since by this point he was 14.5 lbs! They are all pretty big male cats but this food really made it easy for me to know what this product was doing for my neutured cats and seems to keep their weight down. I have been feeding them this for about 6 months and I love it and I'm really grateful to have Purina One come out with a product I know is good for my cat's health.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent and #1 score for my pet and I I received a complimentary sample of the Purina one brand cat food from influenster. I was skeptical at first since I have a very picky cat. His main food was friskies .. he's also weird he doesn't like any fish brands as well. So I opened this cat food for him to try well to my surprise he loved it! It has made his coat healthier, he's happier and is getting a tummy. I received a coupon for a free bag as well. I did not hesitate and cashed that baby in. He looks forward to his new food every morning and every evening. This product is excellent and would recommend it for anyone who has a picky eater. It changed my cats diet for the better and much healthier weight as well. Thank you for your excellent product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Protein Cat Food for Cats who need that I have a diabetic cat that must eat high protein foods. This was the perfect cat food for him. Plus, my other cats preferred this cat food over the others I have bought.Now, Walmart quit selling this cat food and I can't find it in other grocery stores. At first I was afraid Purina had quit making this cat food. Now I'm not sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

    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.
