Royal Canin Kitten Sterilised
Cats are curious creatures and will begin exploring their surroundings straight away. The immune system only develops part way through the development phase, so between 6-12 months your cat requires additional support, especially if it has been sterilised.
Royal Canin Kitten Sterilised is adapted to meet the specific needs of sterilised cats. This special food contains a selected combination of ingredients, with a patented antioxidant complex and vital proteins, vitamins and minerals. It has been specially developed to support your kitten's health in the first year of its life and ensure it grows into a strong adult cat.
Your kitten is not yet a cat!
Kittens require specifically tailored nutrition.
Imagine we are talking about human beings - would you feed your baby the same diet as an adult? Of course not! Babies have a sensitive digestive system, small jaws and no teeth, so could not, for example, bite into an apple as an adult could. Comparisons such as this make it easier to understand why our young pets require a whole different kind of food from their adult counterparts.
With a few breed- and gender-specific different, cats up to 12 months need tailored diets in order to reach healthy adulthood. The Royal Canin Kitten range offers your kitten the perfect start, so you can choose the ideal combination of wet and dry food.
- The time frame between when a mother cat's protection is no longer enough and your kitten's own immune system has not yet developed properly can cause an "immunological gap".
- Chewing is also limited. Nutrients reach the stomach without being properly pre-digested by enzymes in the saliva.
- Kittens need many small meals, sometimes eating 10-16 times per day.
- A specially adapted kibble with tailored size, shape and texture can be vital in ensuring healthy digestion, clean teeth and good acceptance.
- Smaller kibble pieces are considerably easier to chew.
- Nutrients to supports the natural immunity and urinary tract of a sterilised kitten.
Benefits of dry food: concentrated nutrients and a texture that cleans teeth and supports dental health.
