Rated 5 out of 5by BabysMom It Really Works! Our grumpy cat demands food and gets crabby if her bowl is not at a specific level. We watched her get heavier and no longer be able to properly groom herself...even though we provided toys and she has other pet friends to play with. She ignored it all. We switched to Purina Healthy Weight and she still likes to eat but the vet was so amazed when the vet techs told her our cat was down 28% of her previous weight (5 months after the change of food), the vet came out to make sure nothing was wrong. When she found out the food we switched to, she said she might encourage others to try it. Our cat is more active, plays and is able to groom herself. 11/10/2015
Rated 5 out of 5by Trishaloha A Necessary Change For My Boys' Health That Works & They LOVE! I currently have two indoor kitties, both males, who are relatively active--they play with me and together often, & race around the house frequently--especially when it's time to eat (a time of day I've dubbed 'the running of the bulls':)
They are both large kitties, however: at age 7 years old, my Clever Trevor weighed in at 14lbs & his ever-sneaky brother Cody was close to 17lbs. Given Cody's weight in particular, they needed a good, healthy weight loss/maintenance regimen. My dear niece is a veterinarian, and she suggested trying separate feedings, if possible; she also highly recommended that I switch from my regular Purina Cat Chow formula to Healthy Weight, citing numerous dietary & health benefits and that many of her patients really seem to prefer the flavor.
The day I made the switch to Healthy Weight, I performed a side-by-side bowl taste test. Both of my boys immediately pounced on the bowl of Healthy Weight; when I awoke the next morning, the bowl was completely empty--something I'd rarely seen before. The other bowl had remained untouched.
Since that time, I've continued to feed my boys Healthy Weight, with an occasional small bag of Grillers for variety. They eat canned food twice a day as well. At their last check-up 6-weeks ago, Trevor has lost 3/4lb while Cody has lost 1lb. It has been a slow, monitored & healthy weight loss program, and my veterinarian is quite pleased with their overall health and appearance. The benefits of a good weight loss/weight maintenance program are invaluable, in my opinion, when it comes to our beloved petsâ€”as the mutual love, companionship, happiness & therapeutic benefits are priceless. 11/10/2015
Rated 5 out of 5by Boop1901 Purina Cat Chow Healthy Weight Both of my cats seems to really enjoy this food. It helps keep their weight under control. This was a problem when I was feeding my cats other cat food. They were becoming overweight, but then I heard about Purina Cat Chow Healthy Weight and decided to give it a try. Not only did it help with their weight issues, but the cats love the great taste. 11/09/2015
