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. Feed kittens multiple meals throughout the day.
- Remember to have clean, fresh water available for your kitten at all times.
- Because IAMS kitten food is complete and balanced, you do not need to add vitamin or mineral supplements.
- When introducing IAMS kitten food, gradually mix it with your cat's current food over the course of 4 days.
