Offer up to four times recommended daily feeding during gestation/lactation. Offer up to two times recommended daily feeding for kittens. Making the transition from your cat’s current food should be gradual to prevent any digestive upsets. Allow 7-10 days to make the transition by adding a little more Dr. Elsey’s cleanprotein™ each day and decreasing your current cat food. Dr. Elsey’s cleanprotein™ Chicken Recipe is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) Cat Food Nutrient Profiles for all life stages.

Feeding Guide (paté)

Adjust the amount of food you serve based on the age, size and activity level of your cat.

Food should be fed at room temperature. Promptly refrigerate the unused portion. Fresh water should be available at all times.

For adult cats, feed 1 (5.5oz) can or 1.5-2 (3oz) cans per 6-8 lbs. of body weight per day. Kittens require up to two and a half times this amount. For pregnant and lactating females, feed up to three times the normal adult amount per day.
