Kitten Formula & Kitten Milk Replacer

If your kitten is too young for solid kitten food or cat food and their mother is not able to nurse them, cat milk formula is essential for the health of your pet. If possible, kittens should nurse from the mother in the first 12 hours to allow for ingestion of colostrum. If kittens cannot continue to be fed from their mother, you’ll need to implement a feeding regiment via bottle or tube until 7 weeks of age when they can begin eating solid food. Kitten milk replacements are formulated to closely mimic the milk of mother cats, and include the essential vitamins and minerals to help your kitten grow. Petco offers cat milk replacer products in both powder and liquid options. Milk replacers are also a great substitute for cats who are pregnant or lactating.
