Rated 5 out of 5 by Cats Love It Our cats ( 9 year old neutered male & 4 year old spayed female )love Purina One Smartblend Healthy Metabolism .. They have beautiful soft shiny coats , no digestion issues or vomiting hairballs .. They love the taste and especially the variety of kibbles .. They never turn down a meal .. It is difficult to find a kibble they both love but we hit the jackpot with Purina One Smartblend .. March 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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." May 25, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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.#. December 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. July 17, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. May 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. July 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cat loves it My cats loved this food, I put there regular brand out and the Purina one brand and they all were going after the Purina One! Even my picky eater JoJo loved it. May 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Healthy Metabolism Is Great! I tried this on my Monsieur because he is a neutered cat. I can't fill is bowl fast enough. He loves the taste! Haven't seen the weight loss, yet but he loves it anyways! June 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Finally Purina One has the formula for my boy! My boy Soly loves Purina One, so when I saw the metabolism dry cat food I grabbed a bag. Since he is a indoor neutered male he is getting the belly spread. I'm so glad he likes it and hopefully soon I will see it working in the weight area also. November 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Shelter Pet I adopted my cat from the MHS on May 3rd,2013. I have had other cats all my life but my little Miriam, 2 years old has got to be the sweetest kitty I have ever had. She like everyone and loves to talk and play. She is very loveable and loves to play. She cuddles, purrs and just is so sweet. She goes to everyone and does not have any mean or nasty streak in her. She is the greatest and I am so thankful she was there for me to adopt.She tugged at my heart strings when I saw her and she still does that today. Love her July 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! November 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kit Kat Loves It I received a free 18 ounce sample of the PurinaONE Smartblend cat food in Chicken and Turkey flavors from Influenster and right away I knew my Kit Kat would love it. She immediately went to her bowl when we put it out for her. She likes food that's crunchy so that was a plus for her. She rarely finishes her food in one setting but she finished her whole bowl. Thank you Purina April 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Purina One our only cat food I only buy Purina One dry cat food. My cat loves all the flavors so it is never a problem changing. Right now she is enjoying Purina One Healthy Metabolism. Her bowl is always empty ! Minnie is healthy and energetic and entertaining ! June 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I have cats ranging from 14 years to 2 years they all eat Purina OneThey are healthy and active. Four are pedigreed American Shorthairs, two rescues My cats, from kitten hood to adult all eat an appropriate Purina One formula for their stage in life. Our adult cats range from 14 years to 2 years. 4 are pedigreed American Shorthairs 2 are rescues. My pregnant and nursing cats are fed Purina One Kitten to give them the extra nutrition that the will need for raising healthy kittens. July 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Frost Loves It! I accidentally bought the Healthy Metabolism formula. My cat is only a year old and not fat, so I was worried he would lose weight that he didn't need to lose. Fortunately the other bag I bought was regular, so I alternated them and mixed them together so he could get enough fat and calories. ANYWAY, Frost loves them both. He prefers dry food lately, though I do give wet along with it just in case he wants some extra moisture. I gave the HM first and he immediately attacked it. He ate like half the bowl in one sitting! (Not really that much, but he did eat a lot.) He ate so much of it, I don't think calories are an issue. I still mix it though. Just in case. September 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. January 16, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great line of products I like Purina ONE because the line of products includes 'Healthy Metabolism' for spayed and neutered cats. August 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! August 21, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by 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 Makes ME feel good My 3yr old was a rescue kitty and has been with me for 2 years. I was told to feed her dry food, but it wasn't Purina, and that's the only brand I have EVER fed my pets unless my vet recommended something else. Joy turned out to be very picky, will only eat dry kibble, and I tried a few different varieties before she seemed to do well with the Healthy Metabolism, and I've stayed with it, no reason to switch. Her vet is happy with her overall health, do I am happy, and sassy little Joy is happy too. May 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My 2 cats love it Chicken & turkey flavor My cats love purine one Purposeful nutrition chicken & turkey flavor. I like the fact that there are no colors like red etc. Those make my cats throw up and who likes throw ups May 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Only food my cats will eat!! We have tried the expensive to the cheap and all inbetween. We keep going back to purine one. It's what came with my rescue kitty's new home kit and since then nothing else has satisfied our 3 kitties. Highly recommend. They are healthy, have great coats, and are very playful. It's the purrfect fit for any feline home. Thanks. Geri, Lily, Milo, and Gracie. May 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. February 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. November 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! February 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I have two cats. Went to the vet said my cats are overweight. My vet suggested Hills Science Diet but that is a bit expensive and I am not working right so collection unemployment. So I went to buy the new Purina and my cats eyes are better with the eye discharge, of course my other cat has to eat the one cats food because its in the same room. So far I dont see any cat not digesting the food, they like it but have not seen any weight changes as of yet. It has only been a few days so have to see how it goes with the food. If the weight does not change may change to Purina indoor advantage. But I will continue to use this product is very popular in the store right now, the shelves are empty so customers that buy the food must have cats they are a bit overweight. So thanks Purina I will let you know the outcome of the weight change as the daily feeding. February 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing! I have 4 kitties who absolutely love this product! This food has helped them lose weight, and has given them energy. They play everyday now. I have a cat that has urinary tract and kidney issues and the lack of ash content in this product has allowed freedom of this issue. I like this product more than the others for the lack of fillers, the high protein, and the results that any cat owner likes to see in their furkids. January 28, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! May 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 March 2, 2013
