The Best Kitten Food Starts with Science
There are several things to keep in mind when choosing the best kitten food for your new pet. Start with these three considerations to make sure your kitten is getting off to a healthy start.
Kittens Have Their Own Nutritional Needs
While some nutrients in kitten food are the same as adult cat food, there are a few differences that will help your new kitten's brain and muscle development.
Expect your kitten’s food to have higher levels of protein and minerals, as well as higher calories, since kittens are typically more active than their older counterparts.
|Weight of Cat||Growth less than months||Growth 4 to 6 months||Growth 7 to 12 months and pregnancy|
