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 - 7 days.

    I liked the idea. The cat not so much.

    By on

    As I said I really liked the idea of a reduced calorie cat food. Well cat said no way. But please try the food. This cat doesn't even like tuna fish. He like his reg. Natural Balance and that's it. What can I say? He doesn't like change.

    My cats love this food!

    By on

    First of all let me say we love Chewy. Ordering online makes it so much easier for us to take care of our cats; we don't have to worry about running out of anything because delivery is so fast! We bought this reduced calorie food because our cats are a little plump (vet recommended), and they actually love it. We initially mixed it with their other food but now they just get it with no other food mixed in and they clean their dish. Would highly recommend!

    My overweight boy seems to like this one

    By on

    I have a 10 yr. old 17 lb male that should weigh 11-12 lbs. I usually sprinkle a bit of dry food on top of his wet food. So far, he seems OK with this one. Hoping it will help. His problem is that he likes most "everything"!!! Fingers crossed.

    Over weight cats

    By on

    I have four over weight cats and was a little hesitant on purchasing this, fearing my cats wouldn't eat it. They ate it and still are. I am very pleased with this reduced calorie formula and will continue feeding it to my cats.

    wasted money

    By on

    I love this brand, I use it for my two dogs so I thought i'd try this reduced calorie for my over weight cat now that his brother passed away and it would only be him eating it. It sadly was a waste of my money though as he refused to eat it to the point where he was so hungry he decided to eat the Christmas tree instead, causing him to puke! very disappointed and broke.

    My cats enjoy it

    By on

    My cats have been happy with this brand. I got the diet food because my cat is chubby. They both love the wet version of this even more. I do rotate what I feed them and this will continue to be in the rotation

    Surprised by Enjoyment

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    I have 4 cats that now hit 9 years of age. All of a sudden they don't want what they enjoyed for years. One eats only dry. Not a big eater but is a big boy. Tried this for the reduced calorie factor and yeah! all of them are enjoying it. Glad I tried it.
