- 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
- 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
Science PlanTM Kitten should be fed from weaning to maturity at 1 year old. Kittens can usually be fed an unrestricted amount of Science PlanTMKitten, although the following feeding guide can be used as a starting point for 2-4 meals per day and the amount adjusted to achieve/maintain optimal bodily condition.
Pregnant queens can usually be fed an unrestricted amount of Science PlanTM Kitten, although the feeding guide can be used as a starting point and the amount adjusted to maintain optimal bodily condition.
Lactating queens should be fed unrestricted amounts of Science PlanTM Kitten (i.e. fed ad libitum) until weaning is completed.
