KMR Kitten Milk Replacer Powder is a milk replacer for kittens that gives extra nutrition and temporary immunity against some diseases.
It closely matches mother's milk in protein and energy for a healthier kitten. This milk replacer is recommended as a food source for orphaned or rejected kittens or those nursing, but needing supplemental feeding. It is also recommended for growing kittens or adult cats that are stressed and require a source of highly digestible nutrients. It comes in a powdered form, but easily becomes liquid. Just mix with warm water. Add a Nursing Kit for easy feeding.
Gently shake or stir one part powdered KMRŽ into two parts warm water. A part is any measuring device you use: teaspoon, tablespoon, or cup. Do not use a blender.
All kittens should receive the queens milk for at least 2 days, if possible. This colostrum milk gives extra nutrition and temporary immunity against some diseases. Warm reconstituted KMRŽ to room or body temperature. Feed kittens 2tablespoons (30 mL) of liquid per 4 ounces (115 g) of body weight. The daily feeding rate should be divided into equal portions for each feeding. Kittens needs will vary and this amount may have to be increased or decreased, depending on the individual. Small or weak kittens may need to be fed reconstituted KMRŽ every 3 to 4 hours while larger and/or older kittens can do well being fed every 8 hours. Weigh the kittens daily to assure adequate feeding.
