To celebrate National Kitten Day (Friday 10 July), PFMA has released a new factsheet with all the guidance needed to ensure a healthy balanced diet for the nation’s kittens.
Getting a cat’s diet right from kittenhood helps way beyond the first few years of life
Packed with gorgeous pictures and covering a range of areas including:- what to feed and how much, when to switch to an adult diet, how to introduce a new diet and advice for monitoring weight gain, the factsheet will help kitten owners get their pet’s diet right from a very early stage.
Nicole Paley, PFMA Deputy Chief Executive, advises: “Getting the diet right for kittens (and puppies) from the offset is so important. It is key to preventing obesity later down the line. Feeding a specially formulated kitten food, following the feeding guidelines on the pet food packet, and keeping an eye on weight gain are the three key steps to follow.”
