    Don't Take Chances! This Saves Lives!

    By on

    I was baby-sitting some kittens for a friend when they became lethargic, but with no other symptoms. I didn't know this special diet existed, until these very special kittens had already lost too much weight because of unseen diarrhea (hidden unseen in clumping litter), but I detected their lethargy and could feel their skinny bodies under their fur, and hurried them to the veterinarian's office as soon as possible!. Once they were well, they were still fragile and weak, but I was already using this "prescription-required" veterinary diet, and the 4 little kittens immediately began gaining back to their original weight ....almost an ounce a day! It was truly a remarkable comeback I was baby-sitting some kittens for a friend when they became lethargic, but with no other symptoms. I didn't know this special diet existed, until these very special kittens had already lost too much weight because of unseen diarrhea (hidden unseen in clumping litter), but I detected their lethargy and could feel their skinny bodies under their fur, and hurried them to the veterinarian's office as soon as possible!. Once they were well, they were still fragile and weak, but I was already using this "prescription-required" veterinary diet, and the 4 little kittens immediately began gaining back to their original weight ....almost an ounce a day! It was truly a remarkable comeback for some very sick kittens. I only wish I had already had it on hand and could have reached for it sooner! Fortunately, Chewy.com is very quick, contacted the vet, and my boxes of this special kitten food (both canned and dry versions) arrived 2 days later! Please read the INFORMATION associated with this kitten food, and see all of the special benefits. These kittens were very weak, but I mixed this (canned version) kitten food with KMS (11ounces) canned (not dry or boxed) "KMS liquid Kitten Milk Replacer", to make it a "soupy consistency" and began feeding them with a syringe. I was already a fan of Royal Canin foods for all of my pet's needs, but this food contains some "prescription extras" specifically to balance your kitty's special needs! Once I was able to quit syringe-feeding the kittens, they began eating the food directly from a dish, and within 2-3 weeks, they were beginning to sample the dry version of this prescription diet. I'm going to continue feeding it to my kittens because of all of the benefits I have noticed as my kittens grew stronger! Next time you see your vet, ask them if you can order "ahead" and have this 'on hand' for those times your kitty is showing any suspicious symptoms, and stay ahead of whatever may be ailing your sweet pet! You never want to try and "self-treat" a sick or ailing kitten, but having this on hand would be so nice so that the kitten could immediately have for use, while you are making arrangements to get it to the veterinarian's office! It was worth it's weight in GOLD! I will never be without it again, even if I sometimes give my babies various other foods occasionally, .....their MAIN DIET will be the veterinarian version of Royal Canin! I found it to be truly amazing because of the rapid recovery and excellent weight gain. It evidently contains all of the right stuff! IF you have recently had your kitten in the vet's office, Chewy.com will actually contact your vet on your behalf !! Every kitten should have the best advantages possible! P.S. Chewy.com has the very BEST prices available on the KMR Kitten Milk Repacer, 11 oz. cans, ..........so there's no need for you to buy elsewhere, unless your vet gives it to you free!! After multiple searches in person, in pet stores, and on the internet, I have found that Chewy.com has the best prices on all my favorite products. … more

    My young petite cat loves this stuff my Vet recommend. It's a fight now to keep the other four adults away from her when she is eating. If I wasn't on a limited income all 5 would be on Royal C.
