Can 5 Week Old Kittens Eat Wet Food?

Yes, 5-week-old kittens can start eating wet food as part of the weaning process. While their primary source of nutrition is still their mother’s milk or milk replacement formula, introducing wet food provides additional flavors and textures.

Offer high-quality, kitten-specific wet food in small amounts, a few times a day, alongside their usual milk source. You can mix a small amount of water or kitten formula with the wet food to make it easier for them to eat and digest.

As they grow, you can increase the portion sizes and decrease their reliance on liquid sources, gradually transitioning them to a solid food diet.
