NUTRI-VET® MILK REPLACER WITH OPTI-GUT™ FOR KITTENS
Nutri-Vet® Milk Replacement Powder contains essential amounts of protein, fat, and carbohydrates plus vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that newborn kittens need. It can also be used as a nutritional supplement for pregnant, nursing or senior cats.
If possible, kittens should nurse from their mother for the first two days of their lives to receive nutrient-rich colostrum. Mother’s colostrum helps strengthen the immune system and contains growth factors to stimulate protein synthesis, fat utilization, and cell growth.
Mix with warm (100–105°F) water at a rate of 1 tbsp. powder to 2 tbsp. water. Refrigerate unused solution promptly. Discard any unused solution after 24 hours.
This product is intended for supplemental or intermittent feeding only. When possible, the kitten should nurse from the mother for a minimum of two days following birth. Small-breed kittens should be fed every 3–4 hours. Large-breed kittens should be fed every 6–8 hours. Feed solution at or near body temperature (100–105°F) at a rate of 2 tbsp. (1 oz.) of solution per 4 oz. of body weight per day. The daily feeding amount should be divided evenly among the feedings.
