|Choosing your Kitten's Food WISELY!-
Just about everyone will agree, you want to feed your new family member a NUTRITIONAL food. This means you need to KNOW how to read ingredient labels! The first ingredient listed is supposed to be what is MOST in the food, but, look again! If, for instance, Corn is listed 3 times, in 3 different forms, it COULD outweigh the first ingredient, which SHOULD be MEAT(Specified!) , POULTRY, OR FISH, or meat(specified!), poultry or fish MEAL-NOT by-products (which can be beaks, feathers, hair etc) or digest, (which COULD contain manure!) Look for NATURAL, HIGH quality ingredients, look for 100% nutritionally complete and balanced with high percent; digestability. Not all expensive or big-name brands are best! However, a really true high quality food will NOT Be Cheap.
|Cost is minimal when you consider unnecessary vet bills because of urinary tract infections, diarrhea, allergies, or long-term illnesses which can be caused by food with low digestibility, poor quality and nutrition, or foods containing toxins! (many catfoods are made with diseased carcasses- MEAT could mean euthanised dogs & cats!)
SECONDLY- but first and most important to your new kitten's health is adequate water consumption! Change and wipe out water bowl at least 2 x daily! Fresh, CLEAN water is a TOP PRIORITY! Think about one of those new , filtered cat fountains, we LOVE ours.
Though dry kibble is the best for your kitten's dental health, many experts now agree that a once a day good quality canned food can be an important factor in your kitten's growth. Because many vitamins are cooked out at high processing temperatures, here at Jan's we add 1 teaspoon of a healthmix to each adult's canned food daily, and 1/2 teaspoon per kitten.
The most nutritious food, of course, is one you make yourself, like the well-balanced, versatile recipe (link shown below) we use. Also one must weigh the time and cost of making your own vs. expensive, but high quality premium foods, and make an informed decision.
