The amount of food your cat needs will vary depending on breed, activity level, age and climate. Use our feeding chart as a guide, adjusting the quantity fed to achieve your cat's ideal weight.

We suggest feeding twice a day, kittens more often. Provide fresh, clean water at all times. Love, attention, playtime and chin scratches should be given freely, as often as possible.

Pregnant/lactating females: increase intake by 50%.

Transition Instructions

It’s important to slowly transition your pet to a new food so their system has a chance to adapt to the change. The transition period should be at minimum, 10 days and could take upwards of 2 weeks, depending on your pet’s sensitivity to change. On day one, introduce 10% new food / 90% old food. Keep the food at this ratio for 2 or more days. Next, increase the ratio to 20% new food / 80% old food for 2 or more days. Repeat increasing in increments of 10% until you’re feeding 100% of the new food. If your pet experiences any kind of digestive upset during this time, try slowing down the process to let his/her digestive tract adjust to the new food. Some vomiting and/or diarrhea can be normal when introducing new foods as the digestive process and the naturally occurring bacteria your pet’s body requires is a complex and delicate system. If you experience any vomiting and/or diarrhea, be sure to reduce the amount of new food the next time you feed and overall, slow the whole transition period down even more.

I followed the feeding guidelines on your packaging, but my pet is too fat/thin. Why?

Feeding Guidelines are simply a place to start. You should increase or decrease the amount you feed based on your pet’s activity level and weight.

Are the ingredients used in Petcurean products “human-grade”?

All of our fresh meat and meat meal ingredients are sourced from animals passed fit for human consumption by the CFIA. The fruits and vegetables used in our recipes also come from the human food chain. We do not, however, claim that our ingredients are “human-grade”; once an individual ingredient leaves a “human-grade” processing facility and enters a “pet food” processor, the ingredient loses its “human-grade” classification.

What is an organic ingredient?

A certified organic ingredient provides a guarantee that the ingredient has met strict government standards for how food is grown, handled and processed; using organic agricultural methods. Organic agriculture focuses on farming practices that encourage soil and water conservation and regeneration, and reduces pollution. Organic farmers use natural fertilizers and pest control methods to benefit the soil, plants and animals for a healthy environment.

Our SPIKE Jerky Treats are manufactured in Gainsville, Georgia and our SPIKE Treat Bars are made in Brampton, Ontario. We are 100% China free for processing and ingredient sourcing.

  • My cat wasn't a fan of this one

    By on

    Unfortunately Chewy stopped carrying the brand my cat has been eating for years, so the last time I ordered food, I tried this one. I began by mixing it with her old food and she would eat around this food to pick out the other kibbles from her old brand to eat. It took over a week for my cat to actually start eating this, and she still doesn't get excited about it like she did with the old brand I fed her. Unfortunately she started getting scabs on the underside of her throat/around her neck from scratching, which the vet said is likely a food allergy to whatever she is eating. Back to the drawing board. :(

  • A bit too expensive, but worth it if you have sensitive furbabies...

    By on

    Great dry food to rotate in your kitty's menu, especially if you have furbabies like mine that crave crunchies - Plus, unlike Petcurean Now Fresh Grain-Free Adult Recipe Dry Cat Food, it doesn't have TOMATO as a main ingredient! You would think that in 2018 a premium petfood manufacturer like Petcurean would know that nightshade vegetables are toxic to felines...DUH!

  • No peas!!!! Yay!

    By on

    I have a cat with a pea allergy. Let me tell you it us hard to find a quality food without peas added. I called and spoke to PetCurean on the phone. They have fabulous customer service. My cats all loved it from day one, and continue to eat it. With fears about sourcing for meats and products used in cat/dog food, i totally trust this company.

  • Kitties and Mom approved!

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    Petcurean Go! was a major hit in our household. The kitties could barely keep their paws off the bag. It's formulated to fit "All Life Stages", so our 6 month of kitten can eat the same as his 4yr old and up siblings! Makes it much easier for us having 5 cats.

  • Cats really like this

    By on

    Both of my cats seem to enjoy this food! I bought it to try after another of their usual brands became unavailable on Chewy. I will definitely be ordering more of the same as well as other flavors in the future.

  • The kids hate it but.

    By on Top 50 Contributor

    Not one of 12 would eat this willingly, at first! Studies say cats can distinguish healthfull foods and will eventually choose to eat them instead of junk... they're eating less of the twinkie Purina and throwing less of this on the floor these days. One day an 8 lb bag will feed my 4 for a month. My mom's might just keep eating the twinkie food. GREAT nutrition: hallmarks include low amount to food, good ingredients, and reduced waste and smells. Better haircoats.

  • He likes it!

    Our new adoptee came to us and promptly went on a hunger strike due to changes in his life. Our vet recommended this food and he has been fine ever since.
