Baby - Pre Neutered cat


Kittens have strict requirements for healthy growth, especially in terms of energy, proteins and minerals. They have a delicate digestive system and an immature immune system. VETERINARY HPM® responds to these specific needs.

  • For kittens, from weaning up to 12 months old if not neutered
  • Pregnant/ lacting cats
  • Covers the intense and rapid growth needs
  • Immune support promoted to improve vaccine response and increase the level of resistance to diseases 

Available sizes:

Skin / coat beauty

Proteins play an important role as they are an essential component of the skin and hair. Hair is 95% protein and almost 1/3 is used for skin renewal and hair growth. The role of protein is therefore fundamental to the beauty of the skin and coat.

Weight control

By promoting satiety and the development of lean body mass (including muscle) rather than fat, protein helps dogs and cats maintain a healthy weight. Fibre is also added as well as L-carnitine to help limit fat storage.

High digestive tolerance

A food that is too rich in carbohydrates can be poorly tolerated and cause loose stools and unpleasant odours.
Low carbohydrate levels, well digestible proteins and the addition of functional ingredients (lactobacilli, montmorillonite, sepiolite, etc.) help to maintain good digestive tolerance.

Tartar control

Pentasodium triphosphate supplementation helps to limit plaque and tartar formation and contributes to good oral health.

Urinary health

By stimulating drinking and promoting naturally acidic urine, protein helps to maintain good urinary health.
A functional ingredient, cynarin, is also added to help dilute his urine.

Kidney function

High protein content contributes to efficient water turnover in the body. Controlled phosphorus intake helps maintain good kidney health.

Low source of food allergies

To avoid food allergies, our food does not contain beef, dairy, egg, wheat, corn, gluten or soy (ingredients that can cause food allergies), which reduces the risk of food intolerance.

Joint and muscle support

The high protein content helps to maintain muscle mass. Chondroitin and chitosan supplementation helps maintain joint elasticity.

Low glycemic index

A diet rich in protein and low in carbohydrates will stabilise blood sugar and insulin levels but also improve insulin sensitivity.

Immune support

Supplementation with beta-glucan (brewer's yeast wall extract) promotes the cat's acquisition of its own defence system.

** During the breeding period, switch over from ADULT CAT with SALMON to BABY CAT as soon as the queen comes on heat.
During gestation, the weight is the one at the beginning of gestation.
During lactation, the weight is the lactating queen’s real weight. During lactation, the queen may be fed ad lib.

Frequently Asked Questions
  • Can I feed my kitten with a home-made diet?

    The food that kittens receive throughout their first year must obviously provide energy and materials to build the skeleton, the muscles and all the new tissues. But nutrition doesn't stop there: it must also help kittens to develop a fully functioning nervous system and effective immune system. Any deficiency in essential nutrients (those who cannot be synthesized by the animal's body) during this very delicate period may affect the cat's future health.

    Many recipes developed by veterinary nutritionists are available for owners who wish to prepare a nutritionally balanced home-made diet for their kitten. However, it is illusory to succeed in respecting all the required conditions because the nutritional balance of a household ration is subject to various hazards. The owner will always find it difficult to follow the recipe exactly, the necessary ingredients are not always available, and the nutritional composition of the ingredients can vary considerably depending on the origin of the product. When preparing a home-made diet, no laboratory analysis can verify the nutritional composition of the raw materials used! 

    Therefore, even when accompanied by the distribution of a mineral and vitamin supplement, home-made diets for cats often show deficiencies in several nutrients such as choline, iron and thiamine. In addition, cats cannot synthesize vitamin D as humans do (via exposure to UV rays) and this vitamin must be provided daily in the diet.

  • Can I feed my kitten with a vegetarian diet?

    The cat is a strict carnivore, which means that certain nutrients it needs cannot be provided by a plant-based diet. Such diets can cause major nutritional deficiencies with serious consequences on health. For this reason, a kitten should never be fed a vegetarian diet.

  • Can I feed my kitten with raw meat diets?

    Raw meat diets (red meat or chicken) are very popular among certain cat breeders but raw meat diets are deficient in calcium and phosphorus. The Calcium/Phosphorus ratio is totally inappropriate for the feline species, especially in terms of bone growth. Such a diet can cause major nutritional deficiencies with serious consequences on health. For example, when fed exclusively a raw meat diet, the kitten is exposed to the risk of pathologic fractures following minor trauma.
