Feeding Your Kitten  

Feeding Your Kitten 
What kind of food should we feed kittens? 
There many pet food options 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. Its recommended to use the same food as the breeder or shelter and make a gradual transition to the food of your choice. 
 
How often should we feed kittens? 
 
Kittens around 8 weeks of age should be having around five meals per day. Over the following 4 months the number of meals should be gradually reduce to two meals per day at around 6 months of age. 
 
You can register your kitten online today or you can contact us to speak to one of our friendly Ryedale Vets healthcare experts. 
 
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.
