Daily Feeding Guide
• For kittens/pregnant cats: begin by feeding the suggested daily amount. Your pet may need less or more food to maintain proper weight. Adjust as needed. If you are unsure, ask your veterinarian.
For nursing cats: keep food available at all times.
• Feeding this food for the first time? Mix increasing amounts of your pet’s new food with decreasing amounts of the old food over a 7-day period.
• Keep fresh water available at all times!
We recommend that you take your pet to the veterinarian at least twice a year for regular health check-ups.
