Great food. My picky girl loves this and has issues eating most other foods.

At about 6 months of age and after many vet visits, my cat Lil Bob was diagnosed with eosinophilic granuloma complex (EGC) and put on prednisolone for about 8 months. His original symptom was diarrhea that no vet could seem to control. His 5 siblings had same issue. Finally an internal specialist said to change the food which helped his siblings but then really caused his EGC to flare up. After trying every OTC limited ingredient food he finally had to go on hydrolyzed RX food. I was not pleased with the inferior ingredients in the RX foods available but they worked for his allergies. He is allergic to chicken and after much trial and error I discovered I believe he is also allergic to peas. Nearly all LID and grain free foods have peas in them and almost 90% of cat food has chicken in it somewhere. In trying to find a food for him I discovered his brother is allergic to lamb and duck. In my hours and hours of online research I somehow stumbled upon Young Again. Your ingredients were actually species appropriate and I was happy to see you had a LID food with hydrolyzed pork and no peas. Lil Bob has been on the food about 2 months now and no more breakouts except when I tried 54/22 version with chicken to confirm he had chicken allergy. Yep he has chicken allergy. He likes the food. He overate it for a while and had soft poops until he finally figured out he didn't have to eat as much. I will say that the poops on this food are much stronger smelling than on other foods which I assume is due to the high amount of protein? I have 12 cats and I am trying to get them to all eat the same food even though several of them have different issues (obesity, UTI, food allergy) . Young Again may fit the bill, only time will tell. For now it works for Lil Bob and he is off medication and the poor quality RX food so that is a win in my book.

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!

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.

I have been using the Lld zero formula for my cats for a year now. Their ages are 18, 19. I began using because I was desperate to find a low phorphous food to supplement the diet of my kitty in kidney failure, he has since passed away. My remaining kitties are doing good on this food and nos on bl panel are good. They are maintaining their weight at roughly 6 lbs, they are sm females. They really enjoy this food, I feel like I'm providing them with good nutrition. They are happy kitties, enjoying life. Thank you, Ann and crew

I bought this food for my senior cat who needs low phosphorus cat food for her kidneys & this is low. She is extremely picky & she will only eat dry food. I hope this food will make her gain weight, instead of losing more weight. I prayed that she would like this food. This is her 1st day trying it & she ate quite a bit of it. I have to hide it from my other kitty because he found her bowl & ate most of it. I was so grateful to finally find a non-prescription dry cat food for cats to help save their kidneys & a food she will eat. Thank you for making this food.

Great food I had been using for my Maine Coons ....unfortunately a few yrs ago I had to stop because my one boy has severe chicken allergy's and this contains chicken fat which he reacts to...I know it has been said that chicken fat has no chicken protein but some cats still react to it...soo bottom line is this is an exceptional food just sad I cant use this for my boys I do use the kitten junior but have to stand by the counter so my allergy cat doesn't get it.....wish it didn't contain chicken fat,,,,
