THE KITTEN GUIDE
Growth is a distinct period in the kitten’s life. Day by day and week by week, the kitten undergoes changes and, whatever the size or breed, a close eye must be kept on certain sensitive aspects of the development. The Kitten Guide will offer you valuable information about nutrition, grooming and hygiene, training and the basic rules for a healthy living, in order to help get you and your new kitten off to a great start together.
THE HEALTH NUTRITION
The growth period is the most important stage in a cat’s life. Not only do they learn their future behaviors, but their body is molded into their eventual shape and size. Many factors influence growth and good nutrition plays a major role. While a newborn kitten has a digestive tract suited to the digestion of milk, their digestive capacities will evolve until they can no longer digest lactose (milk sugar). For proper growth, they must receive balanced quantities of proteins, fat, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals and trace elements in the form of a type of food that suits the physiological and digestive characteristics of felines. The Royal Canin Feline Health Nutrition range, dedicated to kittens, meets all these demanding criteria perfectly.
All KITTEN KITS contain one Royal Canin package of dry food, selected according to the age and the size of your dog, one can of mousse adapted to the age of the puppy and a Puppy Guide, along with Vouchers.
Between the fourth and twelfth week of life, the immunity transferred to the kitten in their mother’s first milk (colostrum) gradually wanes. At the same time, their own immune defenses are not yet fully functional. Specific nutrients during this period can help protect your kitten against infectious diseases. In addition, as their muscular and skeletal systems continue to develop, they have very high energy requirements. To fulfill these objectives, the diet must be precisely formulated to meet the kitte's specific nutritional needs. Quantities of proteins, minerals, vitamins, fats and carbohydrates must be exact, neither too much or too little. A high-quality, nutritional food, meeting the demands of Health Nutrition, will combine just the right amounts of all of these nutrients. If fed nutrients in the wrong proportions, your kitten could suffer from major nutritional deficiencies or excesses, resulting in improper growth and possible long-term damage to the kitten's health.
Each breed has own characteristics which result in specific nutritional needs. Thanks to its knowledge of the cat’s real nutritional needs and its close and active partnership with a network of breeders, Royal Canin’s Research & Development has launched Tailor-made Nutrition which is specifically adapted to meet the needs of each breed and their age. Feline Breed Nutrition is a concentration of technical expertise created to maintain health, vitality and well-being everyday.
Follow the guidelines recommended on the bag, as this will help prevent excess weight gain, which could affect the kitten later in life. If you think your kitten is over or underweight, consult your veterinarian for specific feeding recommendations.
