Veta-Lac Powder Feline is intended for use in kittens
requiring a milk replacement product and in pregnant and nursing queens.
Do not feed to other animals. Not for human ingestion.
Follow your veterinarian's usage and general feeding
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.

and warm water after every use. Rinse well.
