Zero Mature Health

Description

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.

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.

My diabetic boy (now 13.5+ years old) was diagnosed almost 3 years ago and LOVES this food! He really missed his kibble before we found this and he 100% looks forward to when I refill his bowl with this. He still eats mostly canned food, bit this doesn't affect his blood sugar numbers at all. Even my non-diabetic cats love it and will usually choose it over any other kibble I try to give them. 100% reccomend for any cat
