It is important that you feed Pro Plan to your adult cat “free choice” throughout the day, rather than as just a single feeding only at mealtime. Food intake required to maintain ideal body condition will vary, depending on age, activity and environment. Watch your cat’s weight and adjust food amounts accordingly. If you have a kitten, or a pregnant or nursing cat, you should continue feeding an appropriate Pro Plan kitten formula.
Animal feeding tests using AAFCO procedures substantiate that Pro Plan Chicken & Rice Formula provides complete and balanced nutrition for maintenance of adult cats.
RECOMMENDED DAILY FEEDING AMOUNTS
Using a standard 8-oz./250 ml measuring cup which contains approximately 113 g of Pro Plan.
|Weight (lbs)||Weight (kg)||Feeding Amount (cups)||Feeding Amount (grams)|
|5 - 9||2.3 - 4.1||1/4 - 1/2||28 - 57|
|10 - 14||4.5 - 6.3||1/2 - 3/4||57 - 85|
Divide into 2 or more feedings per day. The exact amount your cat requires will vary according to age, activity, and environment. Adjust as needed to maintain your cat in ideal body condition and avoid excessive weight gain. Provide adequate fresh water in a clean container daily. For your pet's health, see your veterinarian regularly.
MAKING THE SWITCH TO PRO PLAN
Although you'll be anxious to see the difference Pro Plan can make in your cat, please allow 7 - 10 days to ease the transition from your cat’s current food. Each day, simply feed a little less of the previous food and a little more Pro Plan until you're feeding Pro Plan exclusively. This gradual transition will help avoid dietary upsets.
