Feeding Instructions

There are two ways to feed Young Again Cat Foods:

At YA, we highly recommend Free-Choice feeding. Please follow the instructions carefully. For additional feeding suggestions and assistance, please read Transitioning your cat.

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. Please do not use distilled water with our food. We recommend spring water with a neutral pH.

I have to tell you that so far I am impressed with your cat food. I have one cat that is recently diagnosed as diabetic. She used to only sleep and eat a lot. Now she's not eating excessively. My husband's cat used to throw up 3 or more times a week. She's not doing that anymore. She also used to freak out if the bowl was half empty and then overeat. She's not doing that anymore either. Plus since feeding our 3 cats your food, I seem to be saving on cat litter.

It's very nice to find a product that will actually save us money in the long run, not only on food but cat litter as well. Plus our cats really like it. When I can, I plan to try your dog food too.

So I would say ya'll have another satisfied customer.

My cat Jake used to get horrible eosinophilic plaques on a near-constant basis. He was on course after course of prednisolone, and started becoming resistant to it. After a trip to a veterinary dermatologist, we put him on Atopica, which definitely worked for a while to keep his symptoms in check. But the medicine is expensive, and for health reasons, it's not something I wanted to keep him on indefinitely, despite the derm vet saying it would be just fine to do so. Plus Jake became increasingly difficult to medicate -- constantly hiding and evading my grasp, fearful of me because he hated that awful-tasting medicine. This spring I switched my cats to Young Again in the hopes that a change in diet might help Jake. He took to it well, and I slowly began increasing the time between his doses of Atopica. In May, I took him off it completely, and he's been lesion-free ever since. I mix the Mature Health formula with the LID Zero Mature and he's had no recurrences (knock on wood), so I am not even sure it's chicken he's allergic to. Of course, his recurrent lesions could have been caused by something else entirely -- something in the environment, stress, etc. But I am NOT taking any chances. I will keep my cats on Young Again as long as it keeps Jake happy, healthy, and symptom-free. Some of my other cats have had urinary issues in the past too, and this food manages those issues as well. I sincerely hope we've put those awful lesions behind us for good now! Thank you, Young Again!
