There are two ways to feed Young Again Cat Foods:
If you must restrict feed your cat, please use these guidelines:
Average consumption for 24 hours:
8 lb. cat – Level ¼ cup
10 lb. cat – Rounded ¼ cup
12 lb. cat – Level 1/3 cup
15 lb. cat – Rounded 1/3 cup
20-25 lb. cat – Level ½ cup
For Maine Coons and other giant breeds add ¼ cup to each of above measures for 12 pounds and up.
PLEASE NOTE: Because Young Again is a nutrient-dense food, your cat will eat MUCH LESS than other cat foods. It does not mean your cat does not like our food.
My review is long over due. My CKD IBD kitty refuses to eat any wet food which would be ideal with CKD..Young Again Lid Zero Mature was suggested on a CKD page that I follow as it’s low phosphorus - super low carbs and higher protein to avoid muscle wasting. Mischiff is super picky …..and he absolutely LOVES this kibble. I know it’s a much healthier option for him than his old kibble and even the RX kibble (which he won’t eat either!!!!) When my girl was end stage CKD the only way she would eat her wet food was with some of this kibble smashed up and sprinkled on top. The people at YA are awesome to deal with too…great customer service.
Great food. My picky girl loves this and has issues eating most other foods.
