Description

Milk Replacement Powder for kittens contains essential amounts of protein, fat and carbohydrates plus vitamins, minerals and amino acids that newborn kittens need. It is readily accepted by newborn kittens and produces excellent growth rates and weight gain. It can also be used to help meet the increased nutritional requirements during cats’ gestation or pregnancy or in convalescing or elderly felines.

Colostrum, defined as the first 24 hours of milk flow following birth, is a highly concentrated mixture of large protein antibody molecules, vitamins, electrolytes, and nutrients. Cats pass the majority of the mother’s antibodies to the newborn via colostrum. Whey protein concentrate is a source of the essential amino acids that are the building blocks for healthy muscles, skin and other body tissue. Dried skim milk contains amino acids and is high in soluble vitamins and minerals. Egg yolk is a major source of vitamins and minerals and contains all of the egg’s fat and cholesterol and almost half of the protein. Lecithin is a rich source of phospholipids vital to proper cell membrane function and integrity. Choline is a B-vitamin essential for nerve impulse transmission.

Key Benefits

  • Builds healthy muscles, skin and other body tissue
  • Veterinary formulated with DHA and direct-fed microbials
  • Food supplement for kittens and pregnant or lactating cats
  • Produces growth and weight gain in your growing kitten
  • Can also be used during cats' gestation or pregnancy and senior felines

  • Saves Lives!

    I have been "saved" from running out of food and vital supplies by Chewy.com numerous times but in this case Chewy literally saved many innocent baby kitty lives. There are few available sources for this milk replacer formula that contains colostrum which is the only ingredient that will keep kittens alive who either have lost their moms to some tragedy or the mother cats just do not care for the babies for various reasons. When kittens are born outside to abandoned cats the mothers often fear their fate and let them die.

When kittens are born outside to abandoned cats the mothers often fear their fate and let them die. I had endeavored to get the kittens at that very young age, when they still need to nurse because otherwise they would not be caught to get spayed/ neutered and placed in safe, loving homes. Thanks to Chewy.com that kitten formula with colostrum was delivered within a day's time and I managed to save these beautiful babies. The mother has been spayed but during their nursing time the mothers also need this powdered formula with colostrum. There is no way I could express how Chewy.com has helped with everything regarding these vulnerable little lives. They have everything we need and they care about their products and their customers. How rare is that nowadays? This Nutri-Vet kitten milk replacement powder is easy to mix, as it dissolves well and rapidly, and this brand is reasonably priced.This is a consideration being that during the vulnerable period of time the tiny kittens must be bottle fed every two hours or so. This means one goes through numerous containers of the milk replacement powder. Though the replacement powders available in feed stores usually don't contain the colostrum necessary, even the formulas without it cost more than twice what we pay at Chewy.com. … more

  • 14 year old cat needed to gain weight

    By on

    After having all but 3 of his teeth removed, my 14 year old cat started to look emaciated and thin over just a few months. We put him on the GNC senior nutrition supplement/milk, but at 7.99 a can, it was too expensive to keep up with. This formula has been a LIFE SAVER, literally. He absolutely loves the milk. He comes running as soon as he hears the whisk. I can tell he has gained weight and kept it on. Our guy still eats wet food, but this is a great supplement to keep his weight up. We use 2 scoops of dry powder with 1/4 cup warm water and whisk. This is more than recommended by the directions according to his weight, but we didn't see any weight gain with just one scoop.

  • the mother abandoned kittens and this was a convenient substitute..

    By on

    There was a reason that the mother abandoned the kittens. They all died before we could use the mix. The mother was smart. The kittens had feline leukemia. We will save it for the next batch of kittens. Price was right. Thanks !

  • Easy to mix and kitties like it.

    By on

    We have 6 kitties that have been abandon by the mom. We have been bottle feeding them for 2 weeks. They liked the milk replacement right away. We didn't have to convince them to drink it. They are growing fast and very active kitties.

  • To short of shelf life to purchase in bulk.

    By on

    I was very glad I only ordered 6 cans. We are a cat rescue and it is kitten season. I thought I would try something new. The expiration date is 10/2015. I don't know if this is because the shelf life is shorter than KMR and other brands we buy but they are always over a year till expiration. Maybe we just got old stock? We will use it before it expires but I would not order this product in bulk.
