Directions for Use:
Weigh the kitten. Prepare enough Nurturall-C, with the enclosed measuring scoop, for use within a 24-hour period. Kittens should be fed at least 1/2 ounce of liquid Nurturall-C for every two ounces of body weight, daily . Kittens should be allowed to consume as much formula as they want. The table at the right gives minimum feeding amounts for a 24-hour period. Mix one scoop powder into one scoop of water. Use tap or bottled water. Stir until smooth. Pour liquid into a clean Nurturall nurser. Heat liquid by placing bottle in a pan of tepid water. Test temperature on your wrist. It should feel slightly warm. Do not microwave. Store Nurturall-C powder in the refrigerator. Refrigerate any unused reconstituted liquid for up to 24 hours. After feeding, hold the kitten's head on your shoulder and rub his back gently until he burps. Make water available after kittens are two weeks old. Small animal water bottles are recommended.

If possible, kittens should nurse from their mother for the first two days of their lives to receive nutrient rich colostrum. Mother's colostrum provides temporary protection from numerous diseases and contains growth factors believed to stimulate protein synthesis, improve fat utilization, and promote cell growth. While mother's milk is always preferable, Nurturall-C contains nutrient rich colostrum milk powder harvested at USDA inspected facilities. It is extremely important to weigh kittens frequently (everyday) to insure they are receiving adequate amounts of supplement. If a kitten loses weight after 48 hours, consult your veterinarian. Feed weak or small kittens every four hours; feed at eight-hour intervals if the kitten is strong and active. Kittens' needs will vary and the time and amount may have to be increased or decreased, depending on the breed, growth rate and activity of the kittens. Orphan kittens must be kept warm for proper digestion to occur. Also, use a warm, moist washcloth and gently wipe the kitten's bottom until it wets and has a bowel movement, several times daily, to imitate a mother's care. This is required for young kitten survival.
Weaning kittens: Kittens may be weaned when they are about 25 days old. As soon as they are able to lap up formula, mix equal parts of prepared Nurturall-C Milk Replacer with a weaning cereal until a soupy mixture is produced. Place mixture in a shallow bowl. As the kitten grows, gradually increase the portion of cereal while decreasing the formula.
Pregnant and lactating queens: Mix one tablespoon of liquid Nurturall-C Milk Replacer per five pounds of body weight into the pregnant queen's daily ration. Continue until the kittens are weaned.
Supplementation: If a supplement is desired for a growing kitten, show cat, nursing mother, geriatric or convalescing cat, simply mix one tablespoon of the liquid per five pounds of body weight into the cat's daily ration of food.
This product is intended for intermittent or supplemental feeding only. Refrigerate after opening. Discard unused
