    Indications:

    • Kittens, from weaning until 1 year old
    • Pregnant and lactating queens

     

     

    Not Recommended For:

    • Long-term feeding to adult cats, unless they have higher than normal energy requirements

     

    Additional Info:

    • During the last half of lactation, kittens can be weaned on to the same Science Plan™ Kitten food that is being fed to the queen, which simplifies the weaning process.
    • All Science Plan™ Kitten formulas are enriched with a high level of DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), an essential structural component of the brain which occurs naturally in mothers' milk. Feeding Science Plan™ Kitten to pregnant and lactating queens provides kittens with high levels of DHA before weaning. When also fed to kittens after weaning, additional DHA is supplied throughout the critical formation and development of brain and eyes.

  • How to adjust feeding amounts to maintain optimal weight.

    Kittens and pregnant and lactating queens can usually be fed an unrestricted amount of food, but a guide to the daily amounts is provided.These amounts are a starting point only because animal needs vary. Adjust the feeding amount to maintain optimal body weight
