Feeding Guidelines

RECOMMENDED DAILY FEEDING AMOUNTS

WeightFeeding Amount
5 - 9 lbs.1/2 - 3/4 cup
10 - 14 lbs.3/4 - 1 cup

These amounts are averages and your cat's needs may differ. Feeding amounts should be adjusted as necessary to help your cat maintain an ideal body condition.

FEEDING TIP
Changes in your pet' diet should be made gradually to allow your pet to become accustomed to a new food. Substitute small amounts of the new food for the old food, gradually increasing the amount of the new food while decreasing the old food, over a period of 7 - 10 days. This gradual transition will help avoid dietary upsets.

Feeding Your Cat’s Sensitive System:
For cats with sensitive digestive systems, these simple feeding techniques may be helpful in minimizing dietary upset.

  • Promote slower eating. Rather than pouring food into a bowl, try spreading it out on a baking sheet or 9” x 13” pan.
  • Avoid overeating. Feed three to four small meals per day rather than one larger one as this keeps your cat from eating too much at one time.
  • Feed a uniform diet. Provide a single, complete and balanced cat formula for multiple weeks. A steady diet may help ease your cat’s sensitive system.
  • Create a calm environment. Identify and address factors that could cause distress to your cat, such as frequent loud noises or confrontations with other pets.

As always, if dietary upset is associated with other signs of illness, please contact your veterinarian.

Provide adequate fresh water in a clean bowl daily.

For your pet's health, see your veterinarian regularly.

My cat loves this!

Our vet told us our cat was overweight by a few lbs and told us to think about how to adjust his food, so wanted to find a food that is good for him and could be shared with our other cat (who isn't overweight) and really enjoy.

We mixed it in with his old food and he LOVES it. He actually picks out the Healthy Weight food and gobbles it up leaving his old food in the bowl!

He's been eating it for 2.5 weeks now and I swear he seems more active and happy...we'll have to wait a while to see if he loses weight, but for the time being I feel good about giving him a food that he really likes to eat. :) Oh - and the other cat loves it, too. Everyone is happy, which makes me happy.

Great Scott Experience - Healthy Weight

My 2 ten year old cats are lazy and overweight. Since babyhood they have only eaten Purina Cat Chow - Indoor Fomula. They graze all day....all night!

When your new Healthy Weight came out, I decided to try the diet routine with them. I feed them 2/3 cup a day (half at breakfast and half at dinner). I also give them a tbsp of "watered-down" tuna fish at Noon.

They have taken to the new eating routine very well. They love the Healthy Weight. While it is too soon to brag on their weight loss, I have noticed them playing a lot more with their toys. This morning I got up and saw 2 pictures hanging on the wall at a funny angle. You figure it out!!!!

Our (my) goal is to get them down to 12 lbs.

Yes She Likes It

My beautiful fussy persian likes this food . She will not eat anything she does not love----she would rather starve and just drink her water. So when she is happy and eats well we are happy. This is a wonderful product and healthy one also. Try it and you will agree and your cat will be a Happy Camper. Thank You Purina From Becha the cat and her Owner Sandy

C is for Chubby

We have never had any over weight kitties until recently. Now I have 2 "chubby" fur babies. C.C. had a belly that measured 19 inches and Billy measured 18 inches. C.C. is now down to 17 1/2 inches and Billie is 17 inches. I am very pleased with the results.

Punky loves her Purina

She starts fussing first thing in the morning until you feed her :) She cries so loud for her food, she wakes everyone up!
