Neonatal Kitten Care

Newborn or abandoned kittens should be bottle-fed using kitten milk replacer (or KMR), which comes in either liquid or powder form. You do not want to use cow’s milk or other human milk options when caring for kittens under 6 weeks old.

Pet Thermometers

Pet experts and veterinarians maintain that a normal temperature for both dog and cats ranges from between 101.0 to 102.5°F (38.3 to 39.2°C). It is always a good idea to know your pet’s baseline temperature on a “normal” day and save it in your phone or jot it down in your pet journal. A normal pet temperature falls into what would be considered a fever for humans, so knowing this fact on the front end will save a bit of worry. If your pet’s temperature rises above 104°F (40.0°C) or falls below 99°F (37.2°C), there is cause for concern and we recommend calling your veterinarian immediately.
