FEEDING YOUR KITTENThe kitten you bring home has been through a lot of changes, and may have only just been weaned from its mother. A common response to this is diarrhoea, which can be made worse by further diet changes. So to start with, feed exactly what the kitten was being fed at the previous home, and only slowly introduce the food that you want to feed. Most vets now recommend that kittens be fed on premium kitten foods like Iams and Eukanuba that are available through veterinary clinics or pet shops. These foods have been specially formulated to meet the exact nutritional requirements of the growing kitten, and they contain high quality ingredients, including minerals, vitamins and essential fatty acids.
FEEDING YOUR PUPPYAll puppies are not created equal – different breeds grow and develop at different rates. Larger puppy breeds are particularly susceptible to diet related health problems, and premium food companies offer foods that meet the exact needs of these special pets.
All puppies should be fed on a high quality food specifically formulated for growth. These foods provide protein, minerals and vitamins in the exact quantities required, and in a form that is palatable, digestable and available to the pup, as tested by rigorous feeding trials. This nutrition ensures the pup is in optimal health, has a glossy healthy coat, is full of energy and has a good resistance to disease.
