Newborn kittens require colostrum from their mother in order to strengthen their immune system and ensure that they get adequate nutrition. Colostrum provides them with the nutrients they need for proper growth and development. It also gives them extra protection from disease. In some cases, the mother's milk supply is too low. When this happens, kittens need to take a supplemental form of milk that contains colostrum. This type of supplement is also used to feed orphaned kittens.
Pro Biolac milk replacer provides a way for kittens to take in enough milk for healthy growth and a strong immune system. It can also be given to female cats during the late stages of gestation and the early stages of lactation in order to ensure that they are getting enough nutrients. Pro Biolac for kittens contains colostrum, which provides antibodies that help protect kittens from disease. It also has a healthy fatty acid called DHA, which is essential for proper brain development, as well as important vitamins and minerals. Other ingredients include beneficial bacteria that support a healthy digestive system. This helps ensure that kittens are able to fully absorb and use nutrients. This supplement comes in a powder form and as a formula. Both forms can be mixed with warm water and given to kittens.
