These guideline amounts are a starting point and your kitten may need more food depending upon age, activity and temperament. In order to reach optimal body condition, you may need to adjust food intake. This represents the total recommended volume of food per day. You should divide the total recommended feeding amount by the number of times you feed your kitten per day to get the actual portion size per feeding.

  • Remember to have clean, fresh water available for your kitten at all times.
  • For mother cats in the first 6 weeks of pregnancy, feed Iams ProActive Health Kitten Food™ based on the 40-49 weeks old guideline. During the last 3 weeks of pregnancy, feed 2 times the amount.
  • When the mother cat is nursing, feed up to 3 times the amount in the 40-49 weeks old guideline.
  • Because Iams ProActive Health Kitten Food is complete and balanced, you do not need to add vitamin or mineral supplements.
  • When introducing Iams ProActive Health Kitten Food, gradually mix it with your cat's current food over the course of 4 days.

SAFE HANDLING TIPS FOR ANY PET FOODS AND TREATS: Please wash your hands before and after handling any pet food or treat. Wash pet food bowls with soap and hot water after each use.
