Additional information

  • During the last half of lactation, kittens can be weaned on to the same Science Plan™ VetEssentials Kitten food that is being fed to the queen, which simplifies the weaning process.
  • The Science Plan™ VetEssentials Kitten formula is enriched with a high level of DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), an essential structural component of the brain which occurs naturally in mothers’ milk. Feeding Science Plan™ VetEssentials Kitten to pregnant and lactating queens provides kittens with high levels of DHA before weaning. When also fed to kittens after weaning, additional DHA is supplied throughout the critical formation and development of brain and eyes.
  • Science Plan™ VetEssentials Kitten may be fed in combination with any canned or pouch formula of Science PlanTM Kitten.

Recommended for

  • Kittens, from weaning until 1 year old
  • Pregnant and lactating queens
