We've been using this food for over a year, and like many, have tried almost every brand at the Pet Store. On True Nature Trout, the cats' activity levels are good, their coats are rich, their weights stable - even our once-scrawny 2-year-old rescue, now 14 years old, has a beautiful coat and maintains at 8 pounds. We just wish the food came in larger sizes.
I have a very picky cat who will not eat wet foods and most dry foods. I can't tell you how much money I have spent trying to get her to eat! I finally came across the ProPlan 45 Trout and Rice formula and she now eats it. It's been two months and she is still eating it! She would usually stop eating anything (except the gross gravy in the Gravy Lovers wet foods- not the chunks of food, but only the gravy). She had been to the vet d/t weight loss r/t her pickiness, now she is gaining weight and appears much better. Thank you. Don't change thing about this recipe!
I bought this because I only feed my 3 boy cats no grain foods. Now here is the interesting part of this review which I must share. Two of my cats eat dry food, but my 1 cat does not. Well, I came home, gave my excited 2 cats the dry food went to feed the 1 cat wet food and notice he went to inspect the other 2 cats dry food and when I turned around the dry food was all eaten up! I never saw my 2 cats eat food that fast. I then gave my 1 cat the dry food and I was absolutely shocked to see him eat it and he liked it! He now eats dry food. Purina keep this on your product line because I'll keep buying it!

FEEDING FOR ADULT MAINTENANCE
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 Pro Plan Kitten Chicken & Rice Formula.
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.
Provide adequate fresh water in a clean container daily.
For your pet’s health, see your veterinarian regularly.
FEEDING INSTRUCTIONS FOR SAMPLE PACKAGES:
Use a standard 8 oz/250 ml measuring cup, which contains approximately 122 g of product. When first introducing Pro Plan to your cat's diet, mix small amounts of Pro Plan into your cat's current food. When feeding exclusively, feed 1/3 - 3/4 cup per 8 - 10 pounds (3.6 - 4.5 kg) of body weight daily. Because animals' energy requirements vary, use these amounts as guidelines only and alter the amount fed based on your pet's age, size and body condition. For your pet's health, see your veterinarian regularly. Provide adequate fresh water in a clean container daily.
