Feeding Information: KMR® 2nd Stepshould be lapped out of a bowl, not fed from a bottle. KMR 2nd Step has been formulated to meet the nutritional needs of young kittens being weaned from mother, or bottle fed kittens progressing to solid foods. For best results the product should be mixed with ready to feed liquid KMR or reconstituted powder KMR to give the consistency necessary to get good food consumption. If KMR is not available water may be used. Fresh, clean water should always be available for drinking. It is recommended that KMR 2nd Step be fed until kittens are seven or eight weeks old when they can be fed commercial kitten or cat food as desired. All changes in diet should be made gradually over a period of one week.

Mixing Directions: Kittens that are up on their feet and lapping from a bowl may be introduced to KMR 2nd Step. Begin by offering it as a thin gruel. Determine the amount of KMR 2nd Step powder to be fed to the kitten at each feeding using the Feeding Guideline on the right side of the label. Reconstitute powder by using three parts (a part is any measuring device, i.e. teaspoon, tablespoon or cup) liquid KMR or water to one part powder for the first few days. Offer only small amounts and remove the uneaten portion after no more than 20 minutes. Kittens should be fed three times per day. Weigh the kittens at least once a week to monitor weight gain and adequacy of feeding. As kittens grow, decrease the amount of water mixed with the powder until weaning food is an oatmeal consistency. Consult your veterinarian for additional advice.

Storage

Powder does not need to be refrigerated, but should be kept covered and stored in a cool, dry place. Avoid exposure to excessive temperatures.

This product is intended for intermittent or supplemental feeding only. Not for human consumption.
