All Life Stages

Original Ultra® Grain Free Chicken & Salmon Meal Formula Cat Food can be fed once a day, twice a day, or free choice. Remember, as indoor cats tend to be less active, do not overfeed your cat. Adjust feeding guidelines according to your cat’s age, activity level, and environment.

When switching your cat’s diet, we recommend that it be done gradually over a 5–7 day period. Keep fresh water available at all times. See your veterinarian regularly.

Kittens should be fed free choice to promote healthy growth and adequate weight gain. To encourage consumption, newly weaned kittens can be offered food moistened with warm water.

Gestating and lactating queens will consume more, up to 4 times the adult requirement per day fed in multiple feedings per day
