    Exclusive LifeSource Bits

    BLUE LifeSource Bits are a precise blend of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals selected by holistic veterinarians and animal nutritionists that support:

      • Immune system health
      • Life stage requirements
      • Healthy oxidative balance

    And LifeSource Bits are cold-formed to help retain the potency of their ingredients. This means that we minimize the amount of heat that LifeSource Bits are exposed to during the manufacturing process. It’s the same concept as when you cook vegetables at high heat — the longer you do, the more heat-sensitive nutrients are lost.

    BLUE Life Protection Formula with LifeSource Bits® will provide your kitten with superior nutrition plus a unique nutrient and antioxidant package specifically formulated for her needs.

    Transition to BLUE
    Start by mixing 25% of BLUE with your kitten's old food, and gradually increase the proportion of BLUE over the next 14 days.

    Preparation options
    Dry - Crunchy and delicious nutrition nuggets and LifeSource Bits right from the bag.

    Dry with Water - Add warm water and mix to fully release flavors and aroma.

    Fresh water
    Be sure to have a clean dish of cool, fresh water available at all times.

    Kittens in their first year require two to three times more food than adult cats.  Feed kittens at 3-4 weeks of age all the moistened BLUE they can eat three to four times per day.  When kittens begin eating dry food, continue to feed all they can eat three to four times per day or allow the dry food to be available at all times.
