Kitten nutrition sets the stage for adulthood


Q: I just got a new kitten and need to know how much to feed her each day and what is the best diet to offer a growing kitten.A: Nutrition is very important as your kitten is growing as the appropriate nutrients will give your kitten optimal growth and development.On average, kittens should gain a pound a month in the first 6 months if they are eating well and growing appropriately. Training your kitten to eat meals rather than free-feeding her is recommended so you can monitor her appetite and the amount of food she is eating as well as prevent over eating and weight gain in the future. It is also recommended to feed your kitten three times daily until 6 months of age.Typically, during the first 6 months a kitten will need to eat approximately 100 calories per pound of body weight per day.
