As your kitten begins to grow and explore its surroundings with a new-found sense of curiosity, it’s important to remember that its natural defences haven’t fully developed yet. This period of new discoveries at 6 to 12 months old means that your kitten’s immune system will need extra support, particularly if it’s been sterilised. ROYAL CANIN® Kitten Sterilised is designed with your kitten’s needs in mind at this crucial time in its development. With nutrients included to help support your kitten’s natural defences after being spayed or neutered, you can help maintain its health throughout the second age life stage. ROYAL CANIN® Kitten Sterilised food provides a special combination of vitamins, minerals and a patented complex of antioxidants to support your kitten’s defences throughout this life stage as it grows into a strong adult cat. Sterilised kittens tend to eat more, largely due to longer sleep durations and decreased exercise and movement as a result. That’s why ROYAL CANIN® Kitten Sterilised food includes a lower level of fat to help manage ideal weight levels appropriately without compromising protein, calcium and phosphorus intake for healthy growth. This food has an enhanced digestive tolerance with highly digestible protein and prebiotics.
