These are the recommended feeding amounts based on the ideal body condition for kittens and pregnant/nursing adult cats of various weights. Individual cat's energy requirements may differ. Adjust the amount fed to obtain or maintain your cat's optimum weight. Keep fresh drinking water available at all times, provide plenty of exercise and see your veterinarian regularly. Every cup of our food is nutrient dense so your cat gets the right amount of calories in a complete and nutritious meal. To help maintain freshness, seal bag tightly and store in a cool, dry location.

Transitioning To Our Food:
If feeding NUTRO™ Cat Food for the first time or changing recipes, we suggest you blend increasing amounts of the new recipe with your old cat food for six days.
To us, clean is simple, purposeful, and trustworthy. This means: We will exclusively source non-GMO ingredients(t) as close to their native form as possible. We will never add artificial preservatives, flavors or colors. We will not use ingredients like chicken by-product meal, corn, wheat, or soy protein and will only use ingredients that serve a precise purpose in each recipe. We will also source our ingredients from trusted farmers and suppliers.
In 2014, we started the process by sourcing non-GMO ingredients(t) and have continued by introducing rigorous GMO testing processes for the NUTRO™ dry dog and cat food lines.
Today, every recipe in our NUTRO and ULTRA dog and cat food portfolio meets our NUTRO. FEED CLEAN standard. We won't rest until choosing any NUTRO product means choosing clean for your pet.
We test our ingredients using a third-party testing facility. For testing, we take random samples from our manufacturing sites and send all samples to our third-party laboratory. The lab then tests for GMOs.
If a positive test is received, we escalate the testing procedure to ensure we identify where the non-GMO trace/product appeared. At times and if necessary, the NUTRO™ brand will source from another supplier and may increase the frequency of testing.
The NUTRO brand is reintroducing its line of dry dog food products with a new, contemporary look that embodies its NUTRO. FEED CLEAN philosophy. The reimagined bags represent a bold, simple and modern design that places ingredients at the forefront, making it easy for consumers to know what they are getting in each product.
The brand’s core dry dog food product offering is now NUTRO NATURAL CHOICE with 19 recipes formulated based on protein choice, breed size and life stage.
