Kitten Advice – Feeding

What kind of food should we feed kittens?

There a large number of pet food option for you to feed your puppy. We recommend a complete diet (usually in biscuit or tinned form), designed for kittens. These diets are carefully balanced to give your kitten their exact nutrient requirements. In particular, we recommend feeding Hill’s VetEssentials food as it contains added nutrient benefits to help boost your kitten’s immune system and protects against many diet-related diseases.

How much should we feed kittens?

This will vary greatly depending on the brand of food you chose to feed your kitten. Most brands will usually have a feeding guide on the back of the packet. Some will be based on your kittens expected adult weight. We advise weighing the amount recommended for your kitten to be as accurate as possible. A good trick is to mark a line on a feeding cup corresponding to the amount you need to feed to make feeding time quicker and easier.
