she has difficulty producing milk; one time losing milk early, the second she produced none at all. she's pregnant again. can we help?




Online vet, Dr. Marie

Dr. Marie replied:

There are some cats who just aren't good at lactating. There really isn't a lot you can do to help her to produce more milk.

Her kittens may need to be supplemented with a milk replacer.

Here are some types of milk replacer that you can buy:

KMR Milk Replacer

Just Born Milk Replacer

Esbilac Milk Replacer Powder
