Kittens should gain weight daily. Daily weighing permits adaptation of the volume for feeding. From the 4th week of age, kittens should progressively learn to feed on solid food. Due to the presence of trace elements and vitamins with a maximum limit, do not give more than 200 g powder/kitten/day.

RECOMMENDED PERIOD OF USE: Use as necessary until the kitten is able to access adequate levels of maternal milk or is fully weaned onto solid food.

Storage

Before reconstitution, store at room temperature and protect from light. Use the plastic lid to close the can. Use rapidly after opening. Once prepared, store in the fridge and use within 24 hours.
