100% Complete & Balanced Nutrition for Your Kitten
Wellness® CORE® Kitten Formula Cat Food is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Cat Food Nutrient Profiles for growth and gestation/lactation.
Transitioning to Wellness® CORE®
It is important to slowly transition your kitten from his/her current diet as it takes a few days for the body to adapt to new nutrient levels. To transition, gradually mix in the new food over a 5-7 day period, increasing the amount of Wellness® CORE® each day, so that you are feeding 100% Wellness® CORE® by day 7.
How to Feed Your Kitten
As kittens grow up they need to learn when, where and how to eat. Depending on age, kittens need to be fed at the same time and in the same place 2-4 times per day. Food should be removed after 20 minutes, if not eaten. In the beginning, kitten?s food can be moistened with a little warm water.
Determining Feeding Portions
Looking at the chart to the below, divide the total cups per day by the total number of times you feed your kitten per day to determine the portion size for each meal. Give your kitten access to clean, cool fresh water at all times and feed Wellness® CORE® wet food in combination whenever possible, to increase the level of water in your kitten?s diet. Nutrition is the foundation of wellbeing, but be sure to give your kitten plenty of love, exercise and see your veterinarian regularly.
