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.

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.

This food has changed my life. I have 10 cats, all with varying needs due to food sensitivities and weight gain. My girl with the most food sensitivity issues had terrible lesions, digestive issues, feline acne, hair loss, fungal infections, and eosinophilic granulomas that caused terrible itching with excoriations. No medical intervention with steroids, etc. helped. None of the special LID or prescription diets worked for her. Other specialty companies with LID kibble with hydrolyzed protein didn't work. She was pulling the fur from her abdomen area due to overgrooming because her tummy hurt. She was miserable, I was miserable. After only 1 week of Young Again Zero Mature, all her lesions have gone away, itching is almost non-existent and her fur is starting to grow back on her abdomen, face, neck and shoulders. The second reason I made the switch is due to urinary disease. Sadly, I lost a beloved boy at 2.5 years old due to uroliths that could not be medically controlled. I vowed to never let this happen again. After reading all the research, I trust this food will keep all their levels in check. Thirdly, I have a very fat cat. He gained a large amount of weight after being neutered. I can't wait to see his progress. There is no food aggression -- I've never really had that problem anyway, but was afraid that it may happen because of the small amount of kibble offered. I feed them 3x per day, they run over when they see me open the storage container. I had no issue transitioning them over to Young Again Zero Mature. They love the flavor, and there was no digestive upset with any of them. I couldn't be more pleased. I signed up for the bottomless bag to ensure I never run out. I think it is important to note that the price point for this food is excellent. I am under budget when purchasing this product. I have literally cut my cost by 50% because I can now feed them all the same thing, and less of it. Please never stop making this formula. The emotional relief this has given is beyond measure. Thank you a million times over.

Young Again Mature Zero put my cat into remission from diabetes and has kept him there for over a year. He went from 3 units of insulin and glucose numbers 350+ to less than 0.25 units of insulin and glucose readings 90-110 in 10 days. I was shocked how quickly his sugar dropped! The food is well worth the money for a much healthier cat (and so much money saved on insulin supplies).
