Transition Instructions

Pets can be sensitive to sudden changes in their diets. For this reason, it is extremely important to follow a gradual transition plan to best support your pet's health and product effectiveness. It is recommended to follow at least a 7-day transition plan before exclusively feeding your pet a new food. Cats will often refuse mixed diets, so we recommend adding the new food to a separate bowl from the old food. Start by mixing 75% of your pet's current diet with 25% of the new diet on Day 1 and Day 2. On Day 3 and Day 4, mix 50% of the current diet with 50% of the new diet. On Day 5 and Day 6, mix 25% of the current diet with 75% of the new diet. On Day 7, you can feed your pet the new food exclusively. Ask your Veterinarian about the best way to transition your pet to a new food.

    My picky cat is eating

    By wagshutch on Feb 21, 2021

    Our cat had to be put on a special diet. Initially we tried a Hill's soft food which she refused. She is eating this food and actually seeks it out (it's in a different spot in our house from the other cats' food). She seems to know this is better for her. So far she seems to be doing better!

    Worked for my cats IBD

    By Works on Feb 17, 2021

    Was prescribed this food by my vet for my cat who was uncontrollable vomiting and was skin and bones, she diagnosed him with IBD, he’s doing much better! The only reason it won’t get 5 stars is because it makes his poop SMELL TERRIBLE!! It fills my entire apt when he goes :(

    Cat loves this food

    By Rw06229 on Nov 29, 2020

    Our cat has some constipation issues and the vet recommended food with fiber, got a some from a different brand and she wouldn’t eat it, suggested this and the cat loves it, seems to be helping her issue also she doesn’t consume as much of this food so it appears to be filling her up which is a good thing as losing a few pounds would be beneficial.

    What the doctor ordered

    By Gman on Dec 29, 2020

    this is a prescription item that our vet suggested for one of our cats intestinal problem. It does the trick, and is actually more like a treat of him since he still prefers his ONE Salmon, but this is easier on his tummy.

    Do NOT buy

    By Regretful on Oct 14, 2020

    My two sibling cats have GI issues and the male has an intolerance of fish flesh that severely restricts my food choice. In addition, my vet recommends limited ingredient food to help with vomiting. The canned Purina Pro Plan EN helps with the vomiting but the amount I would normally feed no longer satisfies their appetites, plus they eat it reluctantly. I purchased the kibble hoping they could eat it too as the canned food is so expensive. (Not sure why as the ingredients are in my opinion poor quality and they regularly vomit undigested rice.) I bought the kibble to try to supplement the canned -- to satisfy their appetites and save money.

I see this same comment in other reviews. Heed it. Will have to increase the amount of canned food fed rather than use the kibble. A financial strain but feeding my cat food that causes the problem it is supposed to solve is not acceptable. As the saying goes I would give this food zero stars but it is not possible. … more
