Beaphar Small Animal Milk
A complete milk replacement feed for newborn and orphaned small animals
A complete milk replacer for newborn and orphaned small animals such as rabbits, guinea pigs, other rodents and hedgehogs. Contains low lactose levels, easily digestible proteins and essential vitamins and minerals to support growth and development.
Beaphar Small Animal Milk is a complete milk replacement feed for newborn and orphaned rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, mice, rats, gerbils, hamsters, degus, and hedgehogs weighing more than 50g. Beaphar Small Animal Milk has been specially formulated to ensure low lactose levels of just 1.1% and a high fat content to closely resemble their mother’s natural milk. The recipe contains high-quality, easily digestible proteins, and added vitamins, minerals and trace elements, including Vitamin C, iron, zinc and calcium, to support optimum growth and development. Beaphar Small Animal Milk can also be used for weaning small animals, or as a conditioning food for pregnant, lactating, sick or convalescing animals.
ALWAYS FULLY READ THE PRODUCT LABEL AND LEAFLET BEFORE USE.
Store in a cool, dry place away from light. Store in original container, tightly closed. For best results use within 3 months of opening. Once empty, dispose of the pot in the household rubbish. Empty pots can be recycled.
Do not use in hedgehogs weighing less than 50g unless directed to by a veterinary surgeon. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN. For animal use only.
When hand-rearing orphaned animals it is recommended to seek veterinary advice as soon as possible to discuss any necessary medical care, such as administration of an electrolyte solution. It is impossible to give precise daily quantities for feeds due to variations in the species of animal, age, size and breed. However, our suggested daily guidelines are given below. It is important to weigh young animals daily so that you can monitor their growth increase.
Using the scoop provided, add Beaphar Small Animal Milk to warm water (allow boiled water to cool before use) and stir until completely dissolved. If required, allow to cool further until lukewarm (38°C or blood temperature). The use of proper feeding equipment is highly recommended, such as the Beaphar Feeding Set or Beaphar Feeding Syringes. These should always be clean and sterile.
Prepared Beaphar Small Animal Milk can be refrigerated for 24 hours but should be reheated to 35–38°C or blood temperature before feeding to young animals.
