Feed your kitten the right food to support their growth and development…
For any new kitten owners, knowing what to feed them is vital for supporting a kitten’s health and wellbeing.
A good kitten food will be rich in animal proteins to fuel growth and be high in calories to keep them energetic
Feeding your kitten the best food provides them with the essential nutrients they need to grow healthily into adulthood. You can find Orijen’s range of kitten food above.
What is the best kitten food?
Kittens need energy. As they explore their surroundings, they’re constantly burning calories. That means kittens need food which provides them with a good source of energy, whilst at the same time helping their muscles to grow at a rate that doesn’t put too much strain on their young bones.
A good kitten food will be rich in animal proteins to fuel that growth and be high in calories to keep them energetic. ORIJEN dry kitten food recipes include fresh meat, preserved only by refrigeration, to maintain optimum nutrition.
Your kitten also needs the correct balance of calcium for strong bones, as well as fatty acids to support their organs: ORIJEN cat foods contain meat that comes from a variety of animals and includes muscle, bone and organs that will provide the nutrients your kitten needs.
With 85% quality meat ingredients and 15% fruits and vegetables, ORIJEN Cat & Kitten nourishes kittens with free-run chicken, turkey, cage-free eggs and wild-caught fish.
All ORIJEN cat foods (except ORIJEN Fit & Trim Cat) are suitable for kittens.
How do I introduce my kitten to a new dry food?
It’s important to introduce new food gradually. Going slowly will give your kitten time to adjust to their new food and will also reduce the chances of digestive upset. Start by giving your kitten a few days to settle into their new environment before making any changes. To transition your kitten to feeding ORIJEN dry cat foods, begin by mixing 25% new food with 75% old food. Slowly increase the new food proportionately over the next five to seven days until you are feeding 100% new food.
How much should I feed my kitten?
It is recommended to start with the feeding portions as suggested on the pet food packaging. Weighing your kitten’s daily feeding allowance allows you to monitor their intake. You may need to adjust portions as you learn your kitten’s ideal daily ‘maintenance’ amount. These amounts may also change over time as your kitten ages. As ORIJEN cat foods are highly palatable, you need to be careful not to overfeed, as this can cause issues such as loose stool or unwanted weight gain.
