Individual kitten's requirements may vary due to age, breed, environment, and activity level. Adjust food as required to maintain optimal body condition, and ask your veterinarian if you are unsure.
BLUE Life Protection Formula with LifeSource® Bits will provide your kitten with superior nutrition plus a unique nutrient and antioxidant package specifically formulated for her needs.
Kittens in their first year require two to three times more food than adult cats. Feed kittens at 3-4 weeks of age all the moistened BLUE they can eat three to four times per day. When kittens begin eating dry food, continue to feed all they can eat three to four times per day or allow the dry food to be available at all times.
Transitioning to Blue Buffalo Healthy Growth:
Start by mixing 25% of Blue Buffalo Healthy Growth with your cat's old food, and gradually increase the proportion of the new food over the next 14 days.
Be sure to have a clean dish of cool, fresh water available at all times.
