  • Why did Rachael Ray develop a grain free recipe?
    Like you, Rachael Ray wants the best for furry family members, like her Isaboo. That's why she worked with experts in pet nutrition to create Rachael Ray Nutrish® Zero Grain. Like all Nutrish food and treats, Zero Grain is made with simple, natural ingredients that cats will love. And here's something else to love: Rachael's proceeds from Nutrish go to Rachael's Rescue®, a charity that helps animals in need.
  • Why would I want a grain free food for my cat?
    Cats' natural diets are very low in grains, as cats are natural carnivores. Also, some cats may have grain allergies, which can cause skin irritations or other problems. These cats can benefit from a grain free diet, which removes the grain allergens.
  • Does this mean I shouldn't feed other Rachael Ray dry cat food recipes that contain grains to my cat?
    All of Rachael Ray Nutrish dry cat food recipes are high-quality foods that contain natural ingredients like real meat or fish as the first ingredient - plus the additional vitamins, minerals, and taurine that your cat needs for a complete and balanced diet. And although some recipes contain grains, they are formulated to be 100% complete and balanced nutrition for your cat. Our Zero Grain formulas are simply new and exciting options for cats who prefer this type of grain free diet.
  • If there aren't any grains in the recipe, is still nutritionally balanced?
    Yes, Rachael Ray Nutrish® Zero Grain dry cat food delivers 100% complete and balanced nutrition for your cat. It contains carbohydrates from other sources like potatoes and vegetables, which have been carefully chosen because they’re naturally gluten free and gentle on the digestive system.
  • Can I feed Zero Grain to my kitten?
    Yes. Rachael Ray Nutrish® Zero Grain is formulated to meet AAFCO nutrient profiles for all life stages. Check the detailed feeding instructions for when you should begin kittens on Nutrish® Zero Grain and how to adjust feeding levels as your kitten grows. And don't forget to see your vet regularly.
  • How do I switch my cat from his regular food to Zero Grain?
    Slowly mix Nutrish® Zero Grain with her other food over a five- to ten-day period until your cat is solely eating Rachael Ray Nutrish Zero Grain. Once your cat is only eating Nutrish Zero Grain, keep in mind that feeding guidelines on the bag are a guide. Your cat's individual needs will vary based upon her size, her activity level and even her age. And overfeeding is a common source of digestive upset. Be sure to check your cat's weight and adjust feeding levels to maintain a healthy weight. And don't forget to see your vet regularly.
  • Is Zero Grain a weight control formula?
    No, Rachael Ray Nutrish® Zero Grain is not formulated as a weight control formula.
