You can make your own fresh cat food that is healthier and cheaper than many other options! By adding our premix to our free recipes, you will be sure your cat is getting the best nutrition possible. You can choose quality ingredients, whether it’s organic, homegrown, local, what’s in season, or on sale at the market. Preparation time is less than 15 minutes! The senior blend contains higher B Vitamin levels, additional fiber for digestive support, and is formulated to achieve kidney-friendly phosphorus levels. You can prepare the recipes with added water or bone broth to promote hydration and support kidney health.

One cat loves it, the other very fussy one doesn't

My 14 1/2 year old, Nell, wolfed it down and licked the bowl clean, then asked for more. So far I've made it with turkey and another batch with beef. Both batches I added one egg and two tablespoons of pumpkin. My 16 1/2 year old, Leonardo, came within 6" of it paused and walked away (with both beef or turkey). In fairness he is the fussiest of fussy cats and has always turned his nose up at most wet food, preferring his dry food, so I based my review on Nell's enthusiastic two paws up. I will try it again with Leonardo this time with chicken and sardines, without the pumpkin and egg. But I won't expect much. Remarkably he is doing ok with his dry food (I get the Blue Buffalo for seniors) and continuous flow water fountain. At 16 1/2 whatever works, sometimes you just can't change the spots on a Leopard. I will order this again for Nell as she seems really happy with me rattling some pots and pans for her! lol

Great product.

I ordered the regular premix first then switched to senior due to I have two seniors in my home . I know I am feeding them a healthy diet now.

Annie Taglianetti
so far so great

Our senior Ragdoll kitty has been enjoying the premix with his new home made food. He loves it. He had been on fancy feast pate for years. He's got a lot of health issues, diabetes and severe asthma.
Since being on his new diet we've noticed a major increase in his energy, he has started playing with his sister again and his asthma attacks seemed to have lessened by at least half, if not 2/3rds. I will be purchasing more.
The recipes are easy and flexible and he really seems to love them.
Not a paid or solicited review.

Not sure yet

Just started adding this to my sick cat's food. He's very picky & sometimes will not eat with anything added to his food. I'm hoping this will help him.

Feline Senior Premix

We've used several other premixes previously but prefer the ingredient profile of HVB Feline Senior Premix. We have more confidence that Dino is getting a balanced and age appropriate diet. So far Dino has tried three of the HVB recipes and has loved them all!

This is a quick start recommendation for feeding your cat or kitten. You have to find a place to start, make a transition and adjust as needed. Monitor appetite and body condition to determine next steps and consult with your veterinarian when in doubt.

Feline weight in pounds:

2-4 pounds feed ¼ to ½ cup

4-6 pounds feed ½ to ¾ cup

6-10 pounds feed ¾ cup

10-15 pounds feed ¾ to 1 cup

15-25 pounds feed 1 to 1 ½ cups

Cats and kittens over 6 months of age can be fed once daily. If you chose to feed two daily meals I would recommend feeding 2/3 of the food in the morning and 1/3 of the food in the evening.

Frequently asked questions

One canister contains enough premix to make meals for one month for the average cat.

Any cat over 6 to 8 years of age would benefit from the added B vitamins, fiber, and kidney-friendly Phosphorus levels in the senior blend. Cats are generally considered seniors at 8-10 years of age and “super seniors” or geriatric over 12-14 years.

Yes, the additional B vitamins are water soluble and easily eliminated by the body. Additional fiber is also not an issue.

Yes, but we generally recommend the Feline Blend for kittens; if adding egg add the shell as well for additional calcium.

 No. You should prepare the recipe in its entirety and add the premix last and mix in well.

Make sure you download our free cookbook and check out our YouTube channel. All recipes can be prepared on the stove or in a pressure cooker or slow cooker. We also have raw recipes.

After cooking, the prepared diet can be refrigerated for 4 days. If feeding raw, the diet should be frozen in servings for up to 4 months and thawed out for each feeding thereafter. Cooked food can be refrigerated for up to 6 months.

The product was developed by a PhD animal nutritionist and a veterinarian.

The product is made in a facility that only uses ingredients fit for human consumption (no feed-grade ingredients). The product is manufactured in California.

A certificate of analysis is provided for each batch. The individual ingredients as well as the final batch are tested for bacteria (Salmonella, coliforms, E. Coli, Staph Aureus) and fungal pathogens, lead, mercury, and arsenic.

We recommend water or homemade broth or bone broth without salt added. Although rare, onion and garlic powder should be avoided as these can cause anemia.

Although many pets have done very well on raw diets, each individual pet and their family has different needs. AVMA does not recommend feeding raw diets due to the risks of exposure to zoonotic risks (spread of Campylobacter or Salmonella) to humans. Use proper hygiene, especially if there are immune-compromised individuals in the household. Dogs can shed these pathogens in their feces. An option is to lightly cook the meat and vegetables. Dogs cannot assimilate raw vegetables easily as they cannot break down the cell walls. The vegetables can be pureed or steamed instead. 

Do not use raw eggs in the feline formula.
