Feeding Instructions

Directions for Mixing: Kittens that are up on their feet and lapping from a bowl may be introduced to KMR 2nd Step. Begin by offering it as a thin gruel. Determine the amount of KMR 2nd Step powder to be fed to the kitten at each feeding using the Feeding Guideline. Reconstitute powder by using 3 parts (a part is any measuring device, i.e. teaspoon, tablespoon or cup) liquid KMR or water to 1 part powder for the first few days. Offer only small amounts and remove the uneaten portion after no more than 20 minutes. Kittens should be fed 3 times per day. Weigh the kittens at least once a week to monitor weight gain and adequacy of feeding. As kittens grow, decrease the amount of water mixed with the powder until weaning food is an oatmeal consistency. Consult your veterinarians for additional advice.

Directions for Feeding: KMR 2nd Step should be lapped out of a bowl and not fed from a bottle. KMR 2nd Step has been formulated to meet the nutritional needs of young kittens being weaned from mother or bottle-fed kittens progressing to solid foods. For best results, the product should be mixed with ready to feed liquid KMR or reconstituted powder KMR to give the consistency necessary to get good food consumption. If KMR is not available, water may be used. Fresh, clean water should always be available for drinking. It is recommended that KMR 2nd Step be fed until kittens are 7 or 8 weeks old when they can be fed commercial kitten or cat food as desired. All changes in diet should be made gradually over a period of one week.

Feeding Guidelines: Feed kittens three times per day

Weight Amount
Small Kittens (8-oz) 2 teaspoons
Medium Kittens ( 1.5 LBS) 2 tablespoons
Large Kittens (3 LBS) 4 tablespoons

More or less food may be needed by individual kittens to satisfy their food requirements for optimum performance.

Storage: Powder does not needs to be refrigerated but should be kept covered and stored in a cool, dry place. Avoid exposure to excessive temperature. This product is intended for intermittent or supplemental feeding only. Not for human consumption.

    They love the mix....

    By on

    I began feeding a malnourished stray thinking it would be for only a few days. Since my experience centers around dogs, I had no idea that I was starting a trend for the hungry, forgotten felines near me. To boost the nutritional value of the food I feed the strays, I add this to their offerings. It seems to work because they don't look like a bag of bones anymore. Based on the research, it's a good way to increase their fluid intake. They love it. You don't realize until your in the middle of a problem how important it is to not allow a non-altered pet to run around the landscape. I don't think my neighbors have a clue what goes on with their roaming felines.

    For a sick girl

    By on

    My adult cat has a serious condition preventing her from eating normally. I am using this along with high calorie pate-type foods to feed her by pipette. She has not been picky throughout this, but she seems to love this stuff. I have mixed it with milk replacer as the directions recommend and water and whole milk. All of these work. Not sure why the directions say to discard after 20 minutes, would like to know more about that. It does continue to thicken, but I’ve had no issues refrigerating it overnight or using it at room temp over a couple of hours. I think this product has helped me and my kitty.

    Better to just stop milk substitute

    By on

    We tried and tried to get our kitten to take it, figuring he loved the milk substitute a lot. No such luck. Now I have an open can of something I may never use again. We've pretty much stopped giving him the milk substitute and he is eating more solid kitten food instead.

    Mercury Loves It

    By on

    Great for kittens that may be a little young but need to give up farm life due to predators. Little Mercury was 4.5 weeks old and still needed some milk. You can mix this as needed. Easy to use!

    Purrrr-fect

    By on

    This along with KMR milk replacement given the first 4 weeks of life is a purr-fect product. The kittens are very healthy and thriving. Well worth the little extra cash to have a purr-fect product that gives the kittens the nutrition they need.

    Always Trusted

    PetAG KMR is the BEST I have ever found for kittens and/or puppies. Over the years, I have fostered hundreds of kittens who needed a mother's milk replacement for extra nutrition. In the beginning, I used different brands. Once I tried PetAG KMR, I was hooked. The kittens thrived a lot better than they did on any of the other brands. Most of the time, I needed to start them on the 1st step formula when syringe or bottle feeding. This past time, the momma cat quit nursing them when they were almost 4 weeks old. I didn't realize this until the 3rd day of them dropping weight. (I weigh all kittens daily from birth till they are adopted or 12 weeks old.)

It was touch and go for 4 of the 7 babies, but they all made it! They are now 8 weeks old and almost 2 lbs. They are gaining and growing very well, so I am slowly weaning them off the 2nd step. They eat 3 times a day; kitten pate w/ dry kitten chow mixed in for breakfast, 2nd step formula in the afternoon and a repeat of breakfast for late supper. They have water and dry kitten chow available 24/7. That is why I am only giving half amount of the KMR in the afternoon. As mentioned, PetAG KMR is the best & the only brand I trust when it comes to feeding baby kitties or puppies. … more

    KMR saves kittens

    By on

    Currently fostering 3 kittens. They love KMR so much, they didn’t want to give up their bottle! Now poring KMR on kitten meat, and they’re happily eating it.

    Happy kittens

    By on

    We got this for our two bottle babies to take them to the next weaning step and they absolutely love it. We have started mixing in some kitten pate and it's perfect for transitioning them to solid food.

    Kitty 2nd Step

    The kittens did very well on this product. They were about 4 weeks old and digested it very well. I used it along with the PetAg milk replacer.
