YA ZERO Mature is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Cat Food Nutrient Profiles for maintenance.
ZERO Mature Health 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 Mature 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. As your cat matures, her body also requires less calcium, phosphorous, magnesium and other nutrients. Excess levels of these nutrients can actually create health problems in CRD and aging felines.
Recommended for felines that cannot tolerate excess starch.
Young Again Zero Mature Health Premium High Protein Cat Food:
Your cat is considered mature as soon as they are done growing bone. For most cats that will be at about 2 years of age. However, for breeds like the Maine Coon, it may be as long as 5 years. Please consult your veterinarian or breeder if you are unsure if your cat has reached adulthood.

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 kitty was diabetic for 18 months. Got her on low carb wet food, but she missed the crunch from her dry food. I now supplement her with Young Again Zero and she loves it, and has also been in diabetic remission for 10 months. My non diabetic kitty will only eat dry food and she loves the Young Again and although she’s almost 11, she acts like a crazy kitten.

I first found Young Again Zero Mature after extensive research to help our cat with kidney disease. This had lower phosphorous plus much better ingredients and nutrition than most of the prescription foods! It was a huge bonus that our other two cats could also eat it and all three liked it from day one. Free feeding allowed our sick kitty to eat whenever she felt like it, which helped her re-gain some of the weight she'd lost in the initial kidney failure crisis. Our other female cat gradually lost the extra 2 lbs she was lugging around and just had an excellent check-up at the vet! Our male cat has maintained a healthy weight. Though we inevitably had to say goodbye to our cat who had kidney disease, we took comfort knowing she had the best possible final months, including being able to enjoy food she actually liked. It's a silver lining that her condition led us to this food that I hope will help our other cats, now about 12 years old, stay as healthy as possible for as long as possible. For the record, we were previously feeding a high-quality dry food from a very well-regarded brand recommended by our vet, so the improvements in our healthy adult cats are an especially strong testament that Young Again is doing something really special!
