Digestive Principles for Sensitive Digestion Kittens

The quality, quantity and balance of the products that the kitten receives, lay the foundation for its health. It is with him that he will go through life, overcoming his small obstacles. In addition, the degree of digestibility of the feed is very important in providing the pet with the necessary nutrients. From the first months of life, your kitten needs a complete, carefully calibrated diet.

If the animal is healthy, and its gastrointestinal tract (GIT) works like a clock, problems with the digestion of components of high-quality feed, as a rule, do not arise. If the kitten shows signs of digestive upset, then the saturation of the body with nutrients, and hence the full development of the kitten, is at risk.

Signs of an indigestion:

unstable appetite;
vomiting
flatulence;
weak and fetid stools (defecation more often 4 times a day);
the stool is rare (less than 1 time per day) and excessively dry, causing difficulty in defecation.
If an indigestion is aggravated or lingering, this may indicate gastrointestinal diseases (worms, intestinal pathogens, viral or bacterial infections) and should be the reason for contacting a veterinarian. But, of course, much more often, such disorders are a consequence of the individual characteristics of the gastrointestinal tract and its increased sensitivity to certain food components.

Feeding schedule for kittens with sensitive digestion: the kitten should not be allowed to use stagnant water, its daily diet should be distributed over 4-6 feedings depending on age. And also it is necessary to protect the pet from accidental snacking and not to feed him outside the regime. The food of such a kitten must be carefully balanced, contain a high amount of easily digestible protein (preferably turkey or chicken meat) and have in its composition a prebiotic to maintain a normal balance of microflora in the intestines.

PRO PLAN® Junior Delicate Kittens with Sensitive Digestion with OPTIDIGEST® Complex meets all the above requirements. PRO PLAN® Junior Delicate is a dry Complete meal with excellent taste and excellent digestibility due to its high content of turkey meat. Chicory, which is contained in the feed as a prebiotic, helps maintain normal microflora balance and proper bowel function.

To prevent the development of a kitten with an increased sensitivity of the gastrointestinal tract, it is necessary to use high-quality feed from the very first feeding. Ideal for self-education, the PRO PLAN® NUTRISAVOUR® Junior wet food is ideal. This food is enriched with omega-3 fatty acids, which ensure the normal development of the brain and vision. And the optimal ratio of calcium, phosphorus and vitamin D contributes to the healthy growth of bones and muscles.

As a kitten grows, it is possible to gradually introduce dry food into its diet, and then adhere to a combined diet (using wet and dry food). At the same time, at a certain time, the kitten should receive wet food, and dry (no more than the maximum daily allowance) should be left in a bowl for the whole day. This will contribute to the realization of kitten’s instincts – after all, domestic cats are characterized by frequent feeding in small portions due to the fact that their ancestors hunted mouse-like rodents.
