Feeding Tips For Cats And Kittens
Cats can be placed on a pure kibble (dry) or pure canned pet food, or a combination of both. How much pet food should be given will depend to a large extent on the cat’s age or life stage, weight, and the nutritional density of their pet food. It’s important to remember that there is no pet food that could meet all the nutritional needs of all life stages. To prevent nutritional deficiencies and ensure optimum nutrition, always give your pet cat a life-stage appropriate, premium-quality pet food. Kitten-specific formula is given until 1 year old or when kittens reach about 90% of their expected adult weight. Transitioning from kitten to adult pet food or from one pet food brand to another should be done gradually to avoid digestive upsets. Monitor your kitty for any changes in their elimination and appetite, or the occurrence of a skin rash which could indicate food intolerance or an allergy.
A change in your pet’s health and/or behavior should warrant a visit to your vet Carolina Forest SC immediately.
