Zero Cat Food


ZERO Premium High Protein Cat Food

Like lions and tigers, domesticated cats are obligate carnivores and by definition have no nutritional requirement for starch/carbohydrates or plant proteins in their diet. When a feline doesn’t eat her natural diet – meat and fat, she can become overweight and at risk for diabetes. Young Again ZERO High Protein Cat Food supports your pre-diabetic or diabetic cat  by giving her a carnivore-based alternative to traditional cat foods. No starch or plant proteins. Plus, our ZERO Premium High Protein Cat Food containing less than 1% starch can be fed to every cat in your home. Cats naturally love the meaty taste and at about 47 cents a day.

Recommended for felines that cannot tolerate excess starch.

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
When calculating food consumption for kittens, use their ‘future’ weight. Typically, 8-10 pounds.
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.

I always recommend YA, especially when people find out they have a kitty with Diabetes. I know that serving YA Diabetic food to our boys when they were diagnosed helped save their lives, and it helped get that disease under control and into remission for them. We had 3 cats that were diabetic.

Our 15 year old cat was newly diagnosed with diabetes which req'd 2x day insulin shots. I researched and came upon this food. Switched diet to can food with low carbs (pate, no gravy) and this as his dry food. Within a few weeks, he no longer needed the insulin. It has been about 6 months now and still doing well. We even showed this food to the vet to recommend to others as they had not suggested anything other than the insulin. Our other young (non diabetic) cat also eats this. We had no problem transitioning. Cost is more than store food but WAY less than the vet visits and insulin we were doing previously.
