Veta-Lac Powder Feline measures are approximately 1 tbsp.

Directions:

  1. Reconstitute powder by thoroughly shaking or stirring together 3 level measures with ½ cup (4 oz.) very warm water. Refrigerate unused portion. To prepare smaller quantities, mix 1 measure of medium to firmly packed powder with 3 measures very warm water.
  2. Give 1 measure of powder daily to kittens weighing 2 oz. Give 2 measures daily to kittens weighing 4 oz. Give 4 measures daily to kittens weighing 8 oz. Give 6 measures daily to kittens weighing 1 lb. Give 12 measures daily to kittens weighing 2 lbs.
  3. Use a clean dropper or bottle to feed kittens whenever they are hungry. Follow your veterinarian's advice to avoid overfeeding.
  4. Feed Veta-Lac Powder Feline to kittens at refrigerated or room temperature. Avoid sudden temperature changes or variations among feedings.
  5. Gradually decrease use of Veta-Lac Powder Feline and liquids and replace them with solid foods over the course of 2 to 3 weeks as recommended by your veterinarian.
  6. Mix 2 level measures of powder per 5 lbs. of body weight in with the regular meals of pregnant and lactating cats. Continue administration until 2 weeks after birth.

Frequency of Use:

Typically, strong newborn kittens are fed approximately every 4 hours for the first few days of life, while weaker or small newborns are fed approximately every 2 hours for the first few days. By the second week, an additional 2 hours are added in between feedings. By the third week, kittens generally only need 3 meals per day, and should be eating from a bowl. Follow your veterinarian's advice for healthy feeding habits and a schedule for gradually converting kittens to solid food.

Follow your veterinarian's usage and general feeding advice.

CAUTION: The consistency and frequency of a kitten's bowel movements indicate if an appropriate feeding schedule is being followed and if food quantities are appropriate. Consult your veterinarian if your kitten develops constipation, diarrhea, or loose stools while using Veta-Lac.

Whenever possible, kittens should be fed the mother's colostrum for at least the first 2 days of life. This is the only way to transfer antibodies that protect the kitten against a variety of pathogens and illnesses.
