Feeding Instructions

Weight Daily Feeding (Cups)
4 lbs or less 3/8
4 - 7 lbs 3/8 - 2/3

13 - 16 lbs 7/8 - 1

These feeding guidelines are suggested only. Feeding amounts may vary by breed, activity level, temperament and climate.

Adult cats should be fed either once or twice per day. When you first start feeding Natural Balance® dry cat food, we suggest to start with the amounts recommended in the Table. Energy requirements vary with environmental conditions, temperature and activity of your cat. The amount of food should always be adjusted to suit your cat’s needs. If you would like to provide a special treat for your cat, you can add small amounts of Natural Balance® Canned Cat Food.

For Older Cats: As your cat begins to age, his energy expenditure will decrease. Decreasing the amount of food accordingly will allow for the maintenance of proper body weight for less active cat. Older cats are sometimes more reluctant to eat hard foods. Adding larger amounts of Natural Balance® Canned Cat Food will make the most "finicky" eater enjoy their daily meals.

We recommend that you do not add vitamins, minerals or any other supplements, except upon the advice of a veterinarian. The maintenance of proper body weight is most important for your cat's health. Consult your veterinarian for specific weight recommendations for your cat. Remember, fresh clean water should be available at all times!

Transition Instructions

When switching your cat's diet, the change should be made gradually, by replacing the current food with increasing portions of Natural Balance® Original Ultra® Reduced Calorie Cat Food. The change should be completed after 5 to 7 days.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 37 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Cat Food for Reducing Calories and Easy on Kidneys I have a ten year old Persian Cat, Louis. He has been raised on Natural Balance Cat Food. When he was eight I decided to get a drinking fountain, Drinkwell, and bought this cat food to reduce his protein intake for easier kidney function. Flat faced animals have trouble getting enough water, but not with the fountain. Older cats can also have kidney problems with higher protein intake. He is very fit. About eight pounds and he plays with me when I throw small pebbles for him to chase, and then he bats them around until I throw them again. He also comes when I whistle like a dog. He's very special. My middle son raised him from a baby and did an exceptional job. He also trained him to never leave the back yard, but I always monitor his outdoor time fear of other cats attacking him. Flat faced cats cannot defend themselves. He is amazing. I highly recommend this cat food. I supplement his diet with joint capsules and NuVet Vitamins. July 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sheds pounds! I have been feeding my cats (9 in all) this product and hopefully it will get them back to a more desired weight. I have a short male kitty that weighs 18 lbs. and I have tried food restriction to no avail. He waddles from side to side and lays on his back. This reduced calorie and the fat cats recipe should do the trick. (I need to send him to Overeaters Anonymous for cats! Ha!) October 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Finicky cat loves this food My older (and overweight) cat enjoys this healthy, low-calorie food! October 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 15 out of 15 love it! I have a lot of kitties and they love this food! Recently purchased the wet canned cat food of the same brand, once the kitties try it I'll post a review of that as well! Best price I've found anywhere! October 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My cats love it. My cats are indoor cats so I am concerned about their weight so I feed them this formula cat food. October 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by A healthy choice for cats whom like wet food. My cat loves this food! I will be purchasing more in the future. Chewy.com makes it so easy and delivery is fast! September 13, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by cats are picky! My fat cat hated it but a friend's fat cat loves it so I gave her the bag of food. August 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cats love the taste! I purchased this food as one of my young cats is very overweight and my older cat is very thin. Both cats seem to love the taste which is a plus. Not sure how the overweight cat is doing yet on losing anything. I'll have to check back in a month or so. Natural Balance is a great brand and Chewy.com always has the best prices! August 10, 2016
