Cimicat Cat Milk Substitute is a clinically formulated milk replacement designed for cats of all ages and designed to enable cats, as well as kittens, to achieve smooth, glossy fur and general good health. Perfect for use as a mother's milk replacement, Cimicat is formulated to provide all the essential minerals, vitamins and trace elements to ensure adequate rearing of orphan or malnourished kittens. Blended with easy-to-digest proteins, Cimicat Cat Milk Substitute is also a rich source of energy through its fat and carbohydrates. Unlike cow's milk, Cimicat replicates the lower lactose content to perfectly simulate cat's milk.
The following recommendations are just a guide and feeding rates will depend on the weight of the kitten and other circumstances. As a general guide feed 20-25ml of mixed Cimicat liquid per day per 100g of kitten weight.
|Age||Prepared Cimicat||Feeds per day||Liquid Cimicat per feed|
|1-3 days||20-25ml||Every 2 hours||2-2.5ml|
|4-7 days||30-35ml||10-12 times daily||3-3.5ml|
|8-10 days||35-40ml||Every 2 hours/10 times daily||3.5-4ml|
|11-14 days||40-50ml||Every 3 hours||5-6.25ml|
|15-21 days||50-75ml||Every 4 hours||8.25-12.5ml|
|21 days - 6 weeks||50-100ml in addition to normal feed||3-4 times daily||12.5-25ml|
Both over and under feeding can cause serious health problems with your kitten. Kittens have small immature kidneys, which cannot cope with excessive amounts of liquid. Overfeeding can cause diarrhoea, whilst underfeeding can cause dehydration.
Boil water and allow to cool to below 40C (lukewarm/tepid). Mix at a rate of 20% dry matter, IE. 1 part powder to 2 parts water. Add a small amount of water and mix to an even paste, then add the remaining required water, stirring all the time.
1 x 10ml level scoop (5g) Cimicat powder to 20ml (20g) water.
Quantities of prepared milk can be stored in the refrigerator and used within 24 hours. Always mix thoroughly, a whisk or household blender may be useful.
When dissolving Cimicat in hot water it is normal to see the trace element particles briefly before being fully dissolved. Some of these particles may show up as blue, light green or pink-purple specks, which are completely harmless.
