If your cat is pregnant or has given birth recently, it's important that both she and her kittens have the correct nutritional support to ensure continued health for the mother, and the best start possible for the kittens. ROYAL CANIN® Mother & Babycat Loaf is formulated with the nutritional needs of the mother and her kittens in mind and is suitable for gestating or lactating queens as well as 1 to 4 month old kittens during their 1st age. Between 4 and 12 weeks after birth, the natural immunity acquired from the mother's colostrum (a milky secretion rich in protective antibodies) gradually decreases. ROYAL CANIN® Mother & Babycat contains a patented complex of antioxidants, including vitamin E, which helps to support the kittens' natural defences while their immune systems are still developing. As the kittens gradually lose the ability to digest lactose, it's then time to begin the weaning process and facilitate the transition to solid food. For this purpose, ROYAL CANIN® Mother & Babycat Loaf is ultra-soft with a delicate mousse texture for easy chewing and effective rehydration. ROYAL CANIN® Mother & Babycat Loaf is also designed to match the optimal nutritional profile instinctively preferred by kittens - making weaning and mealtime routines much easier for the consistent intake of nutrients your kitten needs. To cater to each cat's individual preferences, ROYAL CANIN® Mother & Babycat is also available as dry food, in a tasty and crunchy kibble. If you're considering mixed feeding, simply follow our feeding guidelines to ensure your cat gets an accurate amount of both wet and dry food for optimal benefit. At ROYAL CANIN® we're committed to providing nutritional solutions to your pet's needs. All of our products undergo an extensive quality control process in order to guarantee the optimum quality of food as well as catering to your cat's specific dietary requirements and lifestyle. This means that when your cat and kittens eat ROYAL CANIN® Mother & Babycat Loaf, they're getting a complete and balanced diet.
