How and when to feed your kitten.

It is important to give your kitten the appropriate amount of food at appropriate intervals, but doing so is not always easy since feeding needs vary significantly from one kitten to another. The feeding guidelines listed on the can or bag of food are nothing more than a starting point. Regularly monitoring your kitty's physical condition and adjusting the amount of food he receives according to needs is vital to his health.

To help keep your kitty healthy, Hill's recommends following these simple steps in this cycle:

  • Weigh your kitty
  • Feed it based on a feeding guide and veterinarian recommendations
  • Evaluate your kitty's physical condition with the linear growth graph. Simply enter the date and weight of your pet and use the slider to get the status score of your kitten
  • Adjust the amount of food you give following the graph as your kitten grows

Change food

If you change your kitty's food to Feline Adult Optimal Care of the Hill's Science Plan, incorporate it gradually over a period of 7 days. To do this, mix your kitty's previous food with increasing proportions of the new food until you receive Science Plan only. You will fully enjoy the taste and benefits of the superior nutrition offered by Kitten Healthy Development of the Science Plan. You and your vet Your veterinarian is the best source of information about the health and well-being of your kitten. Ask your veterinarian for advice regularly on the weight of your kitten, because reaching and maintaining the ideal weight of a pet not only reduces certain health risks but also can help your kitten have a more energetic, prolonged and healthy life .

Ask your veterinarian which of these three feeding methods is best for your kitten:

Free selection: Your kitty has food available at all times.
Limited time feed: Your kitty has food available for a limited time.
By portions: Your kitty has a measured amount of food available at specific times every day. WaterYour kitty needs an adequate amount of fresh water available at all times. Not having water to drink for a prolonged period would harm your kitty's health. Extras & snacks Although it is always tempting to give them the remains of the table, they do not give your kitty the right balance of nutrients. Try to limit the extras, as giving more than the account can lead to weight gain or nutritional imbalance.

The next step When your cat reaches maturity, when he turns one year old, his nutritional needs change. You must move on to adult food that will provide you with specific vitamins and minerals in a balance that is appropriate for your age. That is precisely what the Hill's Science Plan can provide. The lifestage range has been specially created to keep your cat in the best possible state of health throughout his life, whatever his breed or lifestyle.
