Can 4 Week Old Kittens Eat Dry Food?

Yes, 4-week-old kittens can begin transitioning to solid food, but it is important to introduce it gradually. At this age, their primary source of nutrition is still their mother’s milk or a suitable milk replacement formula.

However, you can start offering small amounts of moistened kitten-specific dry food to encourage them to explore and begin weaning.

Soaking the dry food in water or kitten formula will make it easier for their developing teeth and sensitive gums to chew and digest. As the kittens grow, you can gradually decrease the amount of liquid added until they are eating dry food exclusively by around 8 weeks of age
