Maine Coone Abigail is losing weight and her coat has become soft and fluffy.

October 21, 2019
Category: Young Again Testimonials

Hello, I am so happy I found Young Again cat food and so is my female 5 yr old Maine Coon Abigail. She has lost 2 lb from 23 to 21 and tells me..... 'mom, I can hop all over my cat shelves easily now that I have lost all this weight and look at this, I can really clean myself better too now that I can reach everywhere cuz I'm skinny' LOL. I groom Abigail twice a day (very long fluffy coat) and on her old food (recommended by breeder will have to tell her about YA) she always had clumps on her thighs near her tail, also on her belly but not a...

No more insulin for Sally!

July 09, 2019
Category: Feline Diabetes

Had to report good news to you: My cat, Sally, was diagnosed with diabetes in late-May 2018. The vet recommended that I put her on ONLY canned food. But, since she will eat very little canned food and loves dry food, I searched for dry food she could eat. Found nothing locally, so went online and found you folks. I ordered a bag of Young Again Zero Mature cat food and started her on it immediately upon arrival. (Which was about a day or two - you guys are so fast!!!!) By last November, she had fallen into the normal range on her fructosamine... Continue reading

Another Remission Cat!

Category: Feline Diabetes

Hi, I just want to let you know my cat Samie, about two months ago was diagnosed with diabetes, he had a BLOOD SUGAR COUNT OF 500 according to the Veterinarian Dr. Deena Grimm at Grimm Tails Veterinary Clinic in Viroqua, WI. I was told that he would need two shots a day for the rest of his life which would cost me about 0.00 a month. I decided to try your Zero Mature Health Cat Food instead, the Dr. said I can try it but thought it would not work. Two weeks ago I took him to the vet because he was throwing up, they cured that and also to... Continue reading

Are your cat foods GMO free?

January 16, 2019
Category: Young Again Ingredients

GMOs are only present in plants. Even if you test a GMO-free grain, it may test positive for GMOs because the pollen from GMO crops in the area can be transferred by the wind, birds and bees to NON-GMO fields. At Young Again, we only use meat protein sources (NO GRAINS OR PLANT PROTEINS, SO NO GMO) in all of our ZERO cat foods. The GMO discussion isn't applicable to meat in that it is unlikely GMOs would transfer into the meat of an animal from digestion. Having said that, we have no way to track what type of plant material the animals... Continue reading

I am wondering if your protein sources are antibiotic and hormone free?

January 12, 2019
Category: Young Again Ingredients

The meat sources in our dog and cat foods are chicken meal, hydrolyzed pork and herring meal. All three come from USDA and/or FDA approved human-grade food manufacturing facilities. Federal law prohibits the use of hormones on hogs and poultry for human consumption. All meat should be free of antibiotic residues, so it should all be 'antibiotic free.' Farmers may choose to use antibiotics to treat or prevent sickness in animals. Even if an animal is given an antibiotic, farmers and processors must allow a specific amount of time to pass befo...

I opened a new bag of YA cat food and my cat stopped eating it after two weeks.

January 04, 2019
Category: Feline/Canine General Health

We get several calls a week regarding this topic. In almost all cases, the majority of the food was being stored in our original bag and the client was placing a smaller, daily supply of food in a more convenient plastic container.

 

Most plastic containers are porous and the oil from the food will adhere to the walls of the container and become rancid. When you add more food to the container, the new food is contaminated and rapidly becomes rancid as well. Cats are very sensitive to rancidity. The average person can detect ran... Continue reading

I do not have any questions, only compliments! I use ZERO Mature as treats for my diabetic fur baby. She absolutely LOVES it. In fact, she loves your product so much, she races me to her testing table as she knows she is going to have a good treat! You are the very first product that is safe to feed my little diabetic. I am very happy and proud that I have found you Young Again!!! My girl is a kibble eater and although she eats her low carb wet canned food, she will grab at my hand if I do not give her a small handful of your kibble! Thank y... Continue reading

Another cat off the juice with a change to his diet

November 09, 2018
Category: Young Again Testimonials

I just want to say that you and Fancy Feast have saved my cat's life. After my cat was diagnosed with diabetes a few years ago, I did a lot of research on wet and dry cat foods. The only truly low carb food that he would eat is a few flavors of Fancy Feast wet food. I could find absolutely NO low carb, dry cat food. The change to Fancy Feast was enough to get him off insulin and control his blood sugars, however, I was rushing home after work to feed him. I couldn't go anywhere except straight home. I'd give him a can when I left in the morn... Continue reading

I found an irregular chunk of something in my last bag of YA cat food that was definitely not a piece of kibble. What is it?

October 15, 2018
Category: Young Again Ingredients

QUESTION: I have been buying cat food from you for about a year and a half. I have seven cats and they are all doing very well on this diet, two of them have chronic health problems that have improved greatly and another one who was overweight has been slimming down nicely. Our vet has been impressed. I buy 25 lb bags and near the middle of the most recent bag, I found a small chunk of something that was definitely not a piece of kibble. It was an irregular chunk about the size of a regular aspirin, uniform medium green in color. What was it... Continue reading

I have a cat that has issues with hairballs. Do you have a particular cat food formula you would recommend for this?

October 11, 2018
Category: Feline/Canine General Health

When feeding any YA cat food, our clients see few hairballs. We find that YA cat's skin and coats become very healthy which means a lot less shedding. Naturally, less shedding equals less hairball issues. And, due to our specific balance of protein, fat and fiber sources, should hair be ingested, it is more is likely to go through to the litter box. While hairballs won't be totally eliminated, they should occur less frequently.

What is the difference between “as fed” and “typical dry matter basis” for pet foods?

September 04, 2018
Category: Feline/Canine Nutrition

When you look at any pet food label, you will find the “as fed” guaranteed analysis of the food you just purchased. This will typically list minimum protein/fat and the maximum level of moisture/crude fiber contained in the food you just purchased. The “as fed” refers to the food in the bag that you will feed your pet. These nutrients do not show exact percentages of the listed nutrients. For example, protein is listed as a minimum content, but in reality, it is likely higher.


The best way to compare any pet food is to use “... Continue reading

Guar gum has been extensively studied in both animals and humans and is considered safe and has been shown to have many health benefits.

I have read that any canned food is better than any dry food. Is this true?

July 09, 2018
Category: Feline Hydration

You may often see or hear this statement from well-meaning veterinarians. In their experience, they have only seen poor results from traditional high starch/carb dry cat foods often fed to our carnivore cats.


What your vet may really be concerned with is the hydration of your cat. Conventional thinking is that any canned food will produce better hydration than any dry food. But, if you compare a canned food with 15% starch and a dry food with 15% starch, you will see the same hydration level in the cat when fed either diet. Resear... Continue reading

KIBBLE SIZE 101

July 02, 2018
Category: Feline/Canine Nutrition

On your next cat food order, you may notice that the kibble is smaller in size. Rest assured, the food is correct. It was time to replace the dies as the food kibble was becoming too large. This is something that every food manufacturer does on a regular basis. When our QC department decides that it is reaching the limit for what we deem acceptable, new dies are created. A die is the plate that the food is pushed through (think Play Doh machine). Once the dies are replaced, the kibble is a smaller size. The dies will wear over time until it... Continue reading

Why does my cat vomit?

May 17, 2018
Category: Feline/Canine Allergies
Allergy to an ingredient(s)Hairball or foreign object/obstructionEating too much food at one mealOther medical issues

Mild food allergies usually produce skin and ear irritation. However, severe food allergies can cause vomiting and diarrhea. Vomiting is typically the first symptom observed. Almost always the cat will vomit more than an hour after eating and the vomit will usually be liquid or syrupy and smell like gastric juices. The liquid nature is because it had already begun the digestive process. A food allergy may also cause diarrhea t... Continue reading

Another YA Feline Remission Testimonial!

May 09, 2018
Category: Feline Diabetes

A big thank you Young Again. My 12 year old overweight cat was diagnosed with diabetes November, 2016. Administering 3 to 4 units of insulin twice a day. A little bit of help from the vet, but more information from the wonderful websites devoted to helping owners with diabetic cats was tremendously helpful. Switching from Frisky’s to commercial canned food had a dramatic effect on my cat. It helped to lower insulin to 2 units twice a day. Then I read about Young Again cat food. Skeptical about switching back to dry food, I hesitated for a wh... Continue reading

Can cats recover from diabetes?

April 30, 2018
Category: Feline Diabetes

Many cats newly diagnosed with diabetes will go into nutrition-based remission when the cat is switched to a properly balanced carnivore diet. For best results, the diet should contain less than 1% starch/carbs and should be made with animal protein and fat. The protein must be in balance with the fat to be effective. A good rule of thumb is 2 parts proteins and 1 part fat. For example, 54-58% protein to 24-28% fat on a dry matter basis is best. Dry matter is where a company shows the typical analysis of the food once all the moisture has be... Continue reading

Allergies in Cats

April 26, 2018
Category: Feline/Canine Allergies

Allergies in cats generally take on one or more of three forms; respiratory, itching (often facial, ears and sometimes feet) and digestive. Allergies can be environmental and/or food related. Sometimes reactions like itching or a runny nose only show up at specific times of the year. If a cat has itchy ears or a runny nose only in the spring, it may be a seasonal allergy to some type of pollen or mold that occurs only at that time of year. There is little to be done for mild seasonal cases, the allergy usually dissipates with the change of s... Continue reading
