Why feed HiQ for kittens and their mothers
Choosing the best food for kittens and their mothers
When a new cute inhabitant like a kitten arrives in our house, it is natural that we want to give him proper care. The task number one is to find a feed containing all the ingredients that contribute to the excellent health and longevity of your pet. Traditionally, pet food is selected depending on its age, but HiQ has developed a pet food that is suitable for the youngest as well as for their mothers.
First days of life
The newborn kitten weighs about 100 grams. During breastfeeding, the kitten gains 50 to 100 grams each week. At that time, the kitten’s diet consists exclusively of breast milk. The growth of the first milk teeth marks the beginning of a transitional feeding period. shutdown. Usually kittens are weaned by the 7th week, but special dry food (preferably pre-moistened with warm water) we can start to give the kittens already at the 4th week and thus contribute to the proper development and growth of the kitten.
Developed for the little ones and their mothers
Balanced nutrition is also very important for pregnant and nursing cats. That’s why HiQ has developed a feed that is suitable for the little ones and their mothers.
“Premium dry food” HiQ Kitten & Mother Care “is specially designed for kittens under 1 year of age, as well as for future and lactating mothers.”
This means that kittens and their mothers will receive the essential nutrients that are necessary to maintain excellent health and development.
Main ingredients of HiQ feed
When it comes to the choice of feed, make sure that one of the main ingredients is meat, the main source of protein. It is recommended that the protein content of the product be at least 30%. It is an important building material for the cat organism. HiQ Kitten & Mother Care is rich in poultry meat. These animal proteins are the easiest to digest and are essential to maintaining proper muscle tone and energy.
The fat content of the feed should be about 20%. That’s why HiQ Kitten & Mother Care is enriched with valuable salmon oil, rich in Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. It is a source of energy and at the same time contributes to excellent digestion, shiny coat, healthy skin and strong immunity.
Vitamins and minerals
To ensure proper bone and tooth formation, “HiQ Kitten & Mother Care” is enriched with calcium. We also added other vitamins (A, E, D3, B1) and folic acid to this product. All these nutrients are vital to growing kittens and their mothers. After all, a pregnant and breastfeeding mother transfers vitamins and minerals to her kittens.
The composition of the feed is further improved by adding a special NanoAgent element. It is pure sedimentary mineral (Zeolite) micronized to nanoparticles. Thanks to light nanoparticles, NanoAgent moves the digestive tract faster than nutrients, and the interaction of nutrients with NanoAgent also increases the absorption rate of these nutrients. This speeds up digestion and nutrients, vitamins and minerals are absorbed more efficiently.
“At the same time, it has the ability to selectively remove any mold, yeast or bacteria from the body.” It significantly contributes to the health benefits of both mother and kitten.
The composition of “HiQ Kitten & Mother Care” contains a very important element, the amino acid taurine. The body of a cat does not produce this amino acid, yet it is vital to the eyes and heart of the cat.
Frequency of feeding
Kittens under 12 weeks of age should be fed small doses 3 to 4 times a day; up to 6 months of age it is necessary to feed the kittens three times a day. After 6 months of age, it is enough to feed the kitten twice a day.
