Is this food ok?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I currently have 3 kittens, all around 4-5 months old. Me and my husband are currently feeding them:
Dry: Whiskas Kitten food and IAMS Digestive care mixed 50/50
-we have the iams digestive care because we have been having a problem with our kittens digestive systems,
-they have been having multiple bouts with diarrhea and we had 1 kitten about 2 months ago who died from coccidia
Wet: 1/2 a can of 9 Lives twice a day mixed 50/50 with IAMS for kittens.

I was just wondering if this feeding arrangement is ok or if I need to add or take out anything. Also could someone give some information on raw food. Would it maybe be a good idea to try that as well?

Both of those MAIN ingrediants are CORN and MEAT or CHicken by products ... neither is good for digestion ...

Where do you shop and what country are you in... these help give advise

Can you shop at a Petco or Petsmart? You can get some better foods there.

Maxximum Nutrition makes a Kitten formula and is sold at Wal-Mart. I've heard Maxximum Nutrition supposed to be better than Iams formulas.

I talked to my husband about it, and yes we can shop at petco. There is one located not too far from where we live. I looked on their website and found the "Nutro Natural Choice Complete Care Indoor Kitten Food." Would that be good for them? Also what would be the best canned food that Petco offers to get for them?

FWIW, they will send you a coupon for a free 4 lb bag.

My coupon arrived in about four weeks.

I also have a question about canned food. Would it be best to give my babies one or two cans daily?

The kittens are 4-6 pounds each, and the cans are 3 ounce cans.

Start with one each per day... the six lb could have one and half since you also give dry food

For the canned food, is it one can for all the kittens, or one can for each individual kitten?
