Transitioning to new foods:
Transitioning can result in fewer digestive issues and better acceptance of a new pet food.
- Mix both the current food with the new food
- Gradually decrease the amount of the current cat food while increasing the amount of the new cat food
- Continue to do this over a 7-day period
- Cats who are finicky, older or have medical conditions may take 10+ days to fully transition.
Transitioning at key life stage milestones:
- At one year of age, kittens should be transitioned to a Science Diet Adult cat food.
- At 7 years, cats should be transitioned to a Science Diet Adult 7+ cat food.
- At 11 years, cats should be transitioned to a Science Diet Adult 11+ cat food.
Daily Feeding Guide (1 cup = 8 oz): Feed your cat 1/4 to 3/8 cup per 5 pounds of body weight per day; 3/8 to 5/8 cup per 10 pounds of body weight per day; 5/8 to 3/4 cups per 15 pounds of body weight per day. Helpful Tips: The above ranges are a starting point only. Your pet may need less or more food to maintain proper weight. Adjust as needed. If you are unsure, ask your veterinarian. Keep fresh water available at all times. Feeding this food for the first time? Mix increasing amounts of your pet's new food with decreasing amounts of the old food over a 7-day period. If switching from a canned product, make sure your cat drinks an adequate quantity of water to avoid constipation.

EDIT/UPDATE: My oldest cat is turning 6 this year and my younger one will be 4 later this year. Both are still very healthy, active, and not overweight.
We've shopped at Amazon.com over the years for things other than cat food. I don't recall EVER having a problem. We come back as often as we are able. The prices and service are the best!
