Kittens start to nibble at solid food at 3 to 4 weeks old. Keep moistened PRO PLAN Kitten available at all times and allow your kitten to eat at will until fully weaned at 6 to 8 weeks. After weaning PRO PLAN Kitten can be fed moistened or dry. Use the age of the kitten to determine the number of feeds per day. For kitten’s under 3 months: 3-4 meals (moistened), 3-6 months: 3 meals and 6-12 months: 2 meals. Use the feeding table to select the daily amount to feed, and if you find your kitten is losing weight or overweight when fed this amount, adjust accordingly. To help your kitten maintain an ideal body condition, monitor your kitten’s weight on a regular basis, making sure that their ribs are easily felt and their waist is visible when viewed from above. Maintaining an ideal body condition can impact your kitten’s lifelong health. Feeding quantities required for ideal body condition will vary depending activity, environment and neutered status.
Feeding for reproduction: PRO PLAN Kitten provides the extra nutrition needed by reproducing females during gestation and lactation. Food consumption may vary during gestation, so feed the amount needed to maintain the pregnant female’s ideal body condition. Food intake may double or even quadruple during lactation.
Be sure to provide fresh water in a clean container for your kitten daily. Proper diet, exercise and veterinary care are the best ways to keep your kitten healthy. If your kitten has not had a check-up in the past year, please make an appointment today.
