Other milk replacers may not use food grade ingredients and may only be used for intermittent feedings. Other kitten formulas include artificial preservatives such as BHA and BHT - ingredients we avoid to ensure the best nutrition for our clients' much-loved pets
Hampshire, IL (PRWEB) December 22, 2009
PetAg, Inc. has created innovative and life-saving products for pets since its inception. For 50 years, newborn kittens have benefited from the company's market leading KMR® Kitten Milk Replacer nutrition. Today, PetAg introduces refined KMR made with a new homogenization and pasteurization manufacturing process that assures long-lasting freshness and stability of this preservative-free natural product.
"To ensure that young pets thrive, we make all of our complete-diet kitten formulas with food grade ingredients from the USA," said Darlene Frudakis, president and COO of the woman-owned business. "Other milk replacers may not use food grade ingredients and may only be used for intermittent feedings. Other kitten formulas include artificial preservatives such as BHA and BHT - ingredients we avoid to ensure the best nutrition for our clients' much-loved pets," she added.
These natural newborn care products are the best complete diets for kittens in the market place and most closely match mother's milk. These products can also be used for wildlife rehabilitation and zoo animals, as well as for feeding pets including ferrets and bunnies. In addition to all of this they are used by lactating mothers to enhance their milk supply with vital nutrients.
In addition to the KMR milk replacer formula, PetAg has a variety of supplies available that assist pet parents with feeding including bottles, nipples, weaning food and Bene-Bac®.
"The nutrition that an animal receives during infancy is critical, not only for good health during growth but also throughout its life," said Jean Heidker, Ph.D, PetAg's director of research and development. "Supplying the best nutrition available at all life stages is an important way to positively impact a pet's health and life span," Dr. Heidker added.
