Can I use the flavone enhancer you sell to get my skinny cat to eat more food?

April 25, 2017
Category: Feline/Canine Nutrition

Our flavor enhancer should only be used short term and only as an enticement to get a stubborn cat to eat a new food. It should not be used long term to get a cat to gain weight, as it contains sodium and phosphorus and when used long term it could supply too much of these minerals. When we use it on our food we take the sodium and phosphorous into consideration and the finished food remains nutritionally balanced. Our LID food tends to help skinny old cats gain muscle mass and your Vet can supply you with an appetite sti... Continue reading

Is it possible for my cat’s blood glucose to drop too low on your Zero foods, because there is only a trace amount of starch in them?

April 24, 2017
Category: Feline Diabetes


No, your cats blood glucose level will not drop too low on our foods.  Meat protein is what your cat was meant to consume and is the best and healthiest choice for them.


Your cat has no nutritional requirement for starch or carbohydrates in their daily diet as all cats are obligate carnivores and are able to convert protein directly to blood glucose (BG). The conversion of protein to BG happens at the same rate that your cat uses that glucose to fuel their body’s meta... Continue reading

What are the most common symptoms of a food allergy in cats?

April 21, 2017
Category: Feline/Canine Allergies

Food allergies usually manifest as diarrhea, vomiting and sometimes as itching or skin issues. What we generally see with a cat that has an allergy to a food ingredient is vomiting. The vomiting usually occurs several hours after they have eaten. Generally the vomit will have almost no whole pieces of food in it and it will be a slurry of partially digested food, stomach acid and other juices. This can also happen if a cat just has an upset stomach. However if it is truly an allergy then the condition will worsen and the... Continue reading

How can I tell when my cat is constipated?

April 20, 2017
Category: Feline Poopology/Diarrhea

Generally if your cat has not pooped for more than three days he is likely constipated. Likewise if he is straining when attempting to poop he is likely constipated. Normal stool for a cat eating any of the Young Again foods is a small, firm/hard, dark brown poop that resembles a tootsie roll. If you think your cat is constipated you should consult a vet immediately.

Does my cat need some starch/carbohydrates in her diet to maintain a healthy blood glucose level?

April 19, 2017
Category: Feline/Canine Nutrition

No. Your cat has no nutritional requirement for starch/carbs in their diet. Starch will only mess with your cat’s metabolism and excess starch should be avoided whenever possible. A good rule of thumb is less than six percent starch/carbs is the target you should be aiming for in a healthy cat’s diet. If you have a diabetic cat starch/carbs should be less than 1%.

My cat went into remission on Zero Mature Health. Now that he is in remission should I switch to the regular Mature Health?

April 18, 2017
Category: Feline Diabetes

Absolutely not. We have numerous examples of clients doing this, only to find that their cat’s blood glucose levels steadily climb and within a week the blood glucose is back to historical highs. Your previously diabetic cat should never be given starch or any digestible carbohydrate for the rest of their life.


When a cat goes into remission, it basically means that their damaged pancreas was able to properly deal with the digestion of the diet they are eating. Their current diet and your cat... Continue reading

We have been on Zero Mature Health cat food for quite a while but I see the new LID formula/recipe. Do you think I should try it to give my Milo man some flavor variety?

April 14, 2017
Category: Feline Behavior

Cats really don’t mind eating the same main stay food every day. Daily variety of food types is more of a human notion. Often time’s cats resist change because what they have been eating or doing has been safe and cats are content when nothing much changes in their environment. If what you are doing is not broke I would leave well enough alone. However, once in a while cats will become temperamental for no apparent reason and suddenly decide that a food they have eaten for years is unacceptable. If this were to happen, th...

I thought dry food goes off when exposed to air, like wet food only more slowly, and I thought it was best to throw it away if it stays uneaten for a while, not top it off occasionally.

April 13, 2017
Category: Feline/Canine General Health

In order for bacteria to multiply effectively they not only need a source of food, but they also need high moisture. Anything over 10% moisture will grow mold and bacteria. However, bacteria thrive at a moisture above 20%. We manufacture all of our own products and we typically dry our foods to a moisture content of 3-5 percent. At this level mold and bacteria will not grow and multiply.


Wet food typically has a moisture content 72 – 84%. At this level of moisture bacteria will immediately be... Continue reading

OMG! Now the 50/22 Cat Food is causing the same awful diarrhea as the Zero Carb did! You have a wonderful idea...zero or low-carb cat foods. But you NEED to solve the diarrhea problem, and stop blaming it on the cats and their eating habits!

April 12, 2017
Category: Feline Poopology/Diarrhea

I’m sorry you are having so much trouble. I can solve your soft stool issues if you are willing to consider that your cats are eating too much. Based on your purchases the food is lasting you 46 days and it should be lasting you about 65 days. This means that your five cats are eating 40% more than they should. With thirteen years of experience in feeding our food to thousands of cats, we know for certain that overeating a food that contains high amounts of meat protein, will cause soft stool in cats.

What about bacteria multiplying on the food and in the dishes? Would this cause chin acne?

April 12, 2017
Category: Feline/Canine General Health

Although chin acne could be caused by bacteria, we generally see it caused by an allergy. Many cats are sensitive to plastics and we do not recommend the use of plastic food and water dishes. Our favorite dish is the ceramic Corelle winter frost white 20oz pasta bowl.

What does a normal healthy poop look like?

April 11, 2017
Category: Feline Poopology/Diarrhea

If your kitty is eating a carnivore diet with less than 6% starch, their poop will generally be the size and diameter of a 200 pound man’s index finger for the average 10 pound cat. It will be very firm, well segmented and will range from dark brown to almost black in color.


If your cat is eating a high starch/carb diet full of plant material, his poop will generally be up to twice as large as a 200 pound man’s index finger and will generally be tan in color. Cats on high starch/carb diets w... Continue reading

Category: Young Again Testimonials

"I wanted to share a before and after photo of one of my "kids." This is Mr. Darcy who was quite the 'pudge-muffin' before Young Again Pet Food. After just four (4) months he has lost weight, although I haven't actually weighed him, I can tell by looking at him! He is much slimmer and trim. He looks like a healthy cat! I can't call him "pudge-muffin" anymore. While you may not be able to see a large difference from the pictures, we certainly can. Thanks YAPF for making a healthy pet food for my kids!"

My Cat has just been diagnosed with kidney disease; what should I feed?

April 09, 2017
Category: Feline Kidney Disease

New research shows that a food low in phosphorus (less than 0.60%) is best for cats with kidney disease. Low protein is no longer considered necessary for kidney disease cats as long as the protein is from animal sources and highly digestible.  Our Mature Health diets will work great for Kidney care cats.

How many times a day should my cat poop and pee every 24 hours?

April 09, 2017
Category: Feline Poopology/Diarrhea

Most cats on a high protein, high fat and low starch/carb diet will poop once every 24-48 hours and they will pee 2-5 times every 24 hours. Kittens tend to go more often since they are very active and consume more food because of their rapid growth and higher activity level.


Low quality diets containing high levels of starch/carbohydrates, fibers and other fillers will generally produce poop more often, 2 times in 24 hours is not uncommon. Diets with more than 6% starch will often times cause... Continue reading

Why is my cat overweight?

April 07, 2017
Category: Feline/Canine Obesity

We deal with thousands of cats every year and in our experience there are only 2 reasons (other than a medical issue) that a cat will gain weight when fed free choice. The first is the diet being fed is metabolically incorrect for your cat. A diet containing too much starch would be a classic example. The second is psychological issues. A cat found starving may never be able to overcome his fear and will always overeat or a dominate cat may cause another cat to overeat. The vast majority of already obese cats can eat our...

Why are there so many experts that say you cannot feed a kibble food to a diabetic cat, because they all contain too much starch?

April 06, 2017
Category: Feline Diabetes

There are many online experts who are offering help for your diabetic cat. Many of these people have been around for decades and have always been disappointed with most dry foods because they all contain excessive starch/carbs. This has led them to recommend against the feeding all dry foods. They are not familiar with all of the new technologies and do not realize that our Zero foods contain fewer digestible carbs than many of the wet diets that are currently recommend. Our foods are the first carnivore foods made with a... Continue reading

On July 6, our beloved cat Tiggy became very ill. After seeing the vet he was admitted. They called us a few hours later and gave us the news that Tiggy was diabetic. His number's when he went in to critical care were well beyond 500 Blood Sugar. We were given Pro Zinc Insulin and the needles and sent home to begin injections two times a day, 1 unit each time. Then we also had to take him back very frequently to have a blood sugar check. We began resea... Continue reading

My cat just devoured his new food and then the next day he will not touch it, why?

April 02, 2017
Category: Feline Behavior

Sometimes a cat will gorge on a new food, until they are stuffed. As the food absorbs moisture from their stomach it will swell causing pressure and instead of vomiting up some to relieve the pressure, they just keep it all down and then feel sick. This usually happens when you open a new bag of food.

The new food is really fresh and tastes better so they dive in and eat way too much.

 

Think of eating way too much cookie dough; how soon are you likely to eat mor... Continue reading
