KMR Powder Kitten Milk Replacer
Recommended as a food source for orphaned or rejected kittens or those nursing, but needing supplemental feeding. Also recommended for growing kittens or adult cats that are stressed and require a source of highly digestible nutrients. This life saving formula closely matches queen’s milk in protein and energy and also contains taurine. Available in ready-to-feed liquid, powder formula that is easy to mix with water and emergency 3/4 ounce pouch. Directions: For very young (less than 7 days old) or severely malnourished kittens, mix 1 measure KMR with 2 measures of warm water. For older kittens (7 to 10 days old with eyes open) mix 2 measures KMR with 3 measures of warm water. All kittens should receive the mother’s milk for at least 2 days, if possible.

Feed kittens 2 tablespoons per 4 ounces (115 g) of body weight daily. Small and/or weak kittens should be fed every 3 to 4 hours. Larger and/or older kittens can do well being fed every 8 hours. Divide the daily feeding amount into equal portions for each feeding. The amount required should be increased or decreased to meet the individual requirements for each kitten. Weigh the kitten daily to assure that they are receiving adequate KMR. Consult your veterinarian for advice. The Pet-Ag 2 oz (60 mL) Esbilac Small Animal Nurser is suited for feeding most kittens.
