Kittens grow in 2 unique phases. In the 2nd phase (4 to 12 months) the kitten’s growth slows down. Precise nutrition is vital to ensure she is getting the proper support during this critical growth phase. For kittens in the 2nd growth stage: 4 to 12 months.
DIGESTIVE HEALTH: During the growth period, the kitten’s digestive system remains fragile as it continues to develop. An exclusive combination of nutrients, including highly digestible proteins and an adapted fibre content, including psyllium, and prebiotics (FOS† and MOS*), help support the young kitten’s digestive health and promote optimal stool quality. A unique fibre blend helps support a beneficial colonic bacteria population.
NATURAL DEFENSES: Growth is an essential stage in the kitten’s life: it is the time of big changes, discoveries and new encounters. During this key period, the kitten’s immune system develops gradually. The exclusive complex of antioxidants (vitamins C and E, lutein, taurine) and prebiotics (MOS*) in Royal Canin KITTEN help support the kitten’s natural defenses.
HEALTHY GROWTH: The balanced content of highly digestible proteins, vitamins and minerals in Royal Canin KITTEN helps support the development of the kitten’s bones and muscles, while meeting the energy needs required during growth.

We recommend at least a 7 day transition before you begin feeding the new food exclusively. Start by mixing 75% of the old diet with 25% of the new diet on Day 1 and Day 2. On Day 3 and Day 4, mix 50% of the old diet with 50% of the new diet. On Day 5 and Day 6, mix 25% of the old diet with 75% of the new diet. On the 7th day, you can feed the new food exclusively. This allows your pet’s digestive system to smoothly adapt to the new food.
