Feeding Guide

Daily Feeding Guide

Helpful tips

  • For kittens/pregnant cats: begin by feeding the suggested daily amount. Your pet may need less or more food to maintain proper weight. Adjust as needed. If you are unsure, ask your veterinarian.
  • For nursing cats: keep food available at all times.
  • Feeding this food for the first time? Mix increasing amounts of your pet's new food with decreasing amounts of the old food over a 7-day period.
  • Keep fresh water available at all times!
  • When using with canned food, decrease the amount of dry food to avoid overfeeding.
  • We recommend that you take your pet to the veterinarian at least twice a year for regular health check-ups.
  • Your pet's nutritional needs change with each lifestage. Continue to give her the same precise and balanced nutrition by transitioning your kitten to one of the Hill's® Science Diet® Adult cat foods once she reaches 1 year of age.
  • To prevent suffocation, keep this plastic bag out of the reach of pets and children.
