Feeding Instructions:

Carna4 may be free-fed throughout the day or fed at specific meal times. Plenty of fresh, clean water should be available at all times. 

To free-feed Carna4, fill your cat’s bowl each morning with the recommended portion and make the bowl accessible all day. To feed by scheduled meals, divide the recommend daily portion by the number of meals fed. If you are using Carna4 in combination with other diets be sure to calculate the calories contributed from the foods and reduce the amount of Carna4 accordingly. Although Carna4 is a great complement to raw feeding, we do not recommend feeding Carna4 and raw in the same meal.

Transitioning to Carna4: It may take several days for your cat to adjust to the richer nutrients in Carna4. Start by mixing one part Carna4 to four parts of your cat’s old food. Gradually increase the proportion of Carna4 over 7-10 days until you are feeding all Carna4.

For picky cats, take several Carna4 nuggets in your hands and rub them together. Then put the food away and pet your cat all over. Doing this 2-3 times BEFORE introducing the food makes the smell more familiar to your cat and increases the likelihood they will try a new food.

Your cat may have larger stools in the early part of his or her transition period as the better quality fiber in Carna4 helps to clean out the colon. This is a normal and healthy effect and you will see the stools return to a normal size later in the transition. When transitioning to Carna4 from another diet, try sprinkling in some Flora4 ground sprouted seeds food topper to help aid digestion and normalize stools faster.
