What to feed a cat after delivery?


The main feature of a mother catโ€™s diet is that all food should be easily digestible and rich in nutrients. At this time you should feed the cat much more often - up to 5-6 times a day, and each portion should be small.

It should be a familiar food for the animal. The usual diet is recommended to include milk, fish oil and bone meal containing minerals necessary for recovery.

During childbirth, the cat loses a large amount of fluid. Provide her with fresh water.

A disruption of calcium metabolism caused by carrying and nursing kittens can lead to milk fever - eclampsia, a severe nervous condition that requires immediate treatment. At the first signs of illness - sudden movements, cramps - give the cat sweet water and call the vet.
