Calorie Content (ME): 740 kcal/kg or 11.1 kcal/Tbs when reconstituted 1:2.
Directions for Feeding: All kittens should receive their mother’s milk for at least 2 days, if possible. The colostrum milk gives extra nutrition and temporary immunity against some diseases. Warm reconstituted KMR to room or body temperature before serving. Feed kittens 2 tablespoons (30mL) of liquid KMR per 4 oz. (115g) of body weight daily. The daily feeding amount should be divided into equal portions for each feeding. Kittens' needs will vary and this amount may have to be increased or decreased, depending on the individual. Young and/or weak kittens should be fed every 3 to 4 hours. Older kittens can do well being fed every 8 hours. Weigh the kittens daily to assure adequate feeding. Consult your veterinarian for additional advice. The PetAg 2 oz. (60mL) Small Animal Nurser is suited for feeding most kittens. When kittens are old enough to lap, begin offering reconstituted KMR in a saucer. During the 6th week mix reconstituted KMR with KMR 2nd Step Kitten Weaning Food. Use of the KMR and 2nd Step will allow the kitten to be gradually switched to solid food.
Pregnant and lactating queens: Feed 2 teaspoons (4g) KMR powder per 5 lbs. (2.2kg) body weight daily. Growing kittens already on solid food, show cats and/or convalescing cats: Feed 1 teaspoon (2g) KMR powder per 5 lbs. (2.2kg) body weight daily by top dressing food.
Storage: KMR must be kept refrigerated for up to 24 hours.
Received for free as part of a promotion. Would recommend this over the powder as it saves you more time.
Especially when weaning a large litter of constantly hungry kittens, milk powder takes so much time to prepare. Thus I’m thankful for this liquid form alternative.
