Nourishing Your Kitten for Optimal Health and Growth

At Lake Pine Animal Hospital, we recognize the crucial role of proper nutrition in your kitten's development. As obligate carnivores, kittens require specific nutrients found in animal flesh to thrive. Our recommendations for kitten diets are based on AAFCO standards and are formulated to meet the unique nutritional needs of cats under one year of age.

  • Each bag of kitten food includes a feeding chart, providing guidance on the appropriate amount to feed your kitten based on their body weight, in cups or ounces per day.

Feeding Tips for a Healthy Kitten

  • Consistent Feeding Schedule: Establish regular feeding times to create a routine for your kitten.
  • Portion Control: Follow the guidelines on the food packaging to avoid overfeeding.
