Feeding Guidelines

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.


Weight of CatWeight Maintenance10% Calorie Reduction

10 - 14 lbs (4.5 - 6.3 kg)2/3 - 1 cup (75 - 113 g)1/2 - 3/4 cup (57 - 85 g)

Recommended daily feeding amounts for adult cats with normal activity using a standard 8 oz/250 ml measuring cup which contains approximately 113 g of Purina ONE.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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

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!

My cats love it

One of my cats, Rizzoli, always gets excited when I open a new bag. Their food bowls are always empty when its time for their next feeding.

Losing weight steadily

I have two littermates, one of whom was severely overweight. None of the 'light' blends were working for him, and more importantly, keeping his brother full. I was getting 2am wake up calls from very hungry 'skinny' cat. Since switching a month ago, I have seen a huge uptake in activity in the fatty, and I only have to a small extra 1/4 cup feeding before bed to keep his brother satisfied. (we feed on a four time a day timer). The activity uptick is the most important and impressive part.

My cat LOVES the taste!

We got a sample in the mail and my cat has gone crazy for the taste. He loves it so much that he sits on the bag asking for more, several times a day. I have never seen him act this way with any other food, although the Purina One salmon and tuna comes close. However, my sample bag is almost gone and my grocery store does not carry this variety yet. Hope I can find more soon or we will have one unhappy kitty!

Our girl loves it!

Our girl took right to our changing her food. We had her on One kitten chow for her 1st year and then change to One Healthy Metabolism. We liked the increased protein and reduced fat as compared to her kitten chow. It even looks like she has slimmed up a little since she's been eating it (approx 3 weeks). We are very pleased.
