Milk Replacement Powder for kittens contains essential amounts of protein, fat and carbohydrates plus vitamins, minerals and amino acids that newborn kittens need. It is readily accepted by newborn kittens and produces excellent growth rates and weight gain. It can also be used to help meet the increased nutritional requirements during cats’ gestation or pregnancy or in convalescing or elderly felines.
Note: If possible, kittens should nurse from their mother for the first two days of their lives to receive nutrient rich colostrum. Mother’s colostrum helps strengthen the immune system and contains growth factors to stimulate protein synthesis, fat utilization, and cell growth.
