Use the following 2-step equation to determine a daily total-diet feeding rate for small felines, on a dry matter (DM) basis*. If animals are supplemented with other foods, the amount of Mazuri® Exotic Feline Diet, Small offered must be reduced. If feeding meat items, the higher moisture content of these must be factored to ensure inclusion at proper amounts.
- 140 x (kg body weight) 0.75 = Feed intake (kcal/day)
- Feed intake / 3,835 = kilograms of diet to feed daily, DM
- In general, by using equations above, the recommended feed intake will be 1-3% of body weight per day.
- Animals that are growing, reproducing (particularly during late stages of pregnancy), or lactating lactation will have higher needs.
- While these equations are a useful starting point, it is always best to feed to body condition and keep animals at optimal body condition even if that means feeding more, or often less, than the equation would predict.
*Recommendations for exotic felines range from 55 - 260 kcal x kg BW (NRC of Dogs and Cats, 2006.)
For best results, store contents of open bag in container with sealing lid. Store in a cool (75°F or colder), dry (approximately 50% RH) location. Freezing will not harm the diet and may extend freshness. Use within 1 year of bag manufacturing
