Beaphar Kitty Milk is a complete milk replacement food, specially formulated for orphan kittens, or those not suckling well, from birth through weaning. It is also suitable as a supplement for the mother cat during pregnancy and while suckling her young. Kitty Milk provides 32% protein plus the correct balance of oils, vitamins and minerals for the best start in life, and includes taurine. Due to the very special process used to dry the powder, protein is available in a very digestible form, and is of much greater benefit to the kittens. One pot makes approx 700ml replacement milk.
How to use
Add Kitty Milk to warm, not boiling, water and stir until completely dissolved. Allow to cool to blood temperature (38°C) and it is ready for use. Older pets may prefer to drink their Kitty Milk cold. The use of clean sterile feeding equipment is highly recommended, especially for young animals. Prepared feed may be kept in a refrigerator for up to 24 hours. Reheat to blood temperature before feeding young animals. Always keep fresh drinking water available.
We recommend the following dilutions:
Mix 1 part powder (in g) with 3.5 parts water (in ml). 1 level scoop of Kitty Milk is approximately 2.5g, so 12 scoops (30g) can be mixed with 105ml water, to give
approximately 130ml of ready-to-use milk.
Recommended daily amount: it is impossible to give precise daily quantities due to considerable variations of age, size and breed, so “demand feeding” will often be your best guide. It is important to weigh young kittens on a daily basis, as they may lose weight rapidly if unwell.
Orphaned kittens: If kittens cannot be placed with a lactating mother then the feeding and training of the kittens must be undertaken by yourself. It’s important to weigh the kittens regularly to check growth rates.
N.B. The opening of teats should be checked regularly to ensure that when the bottle is turned upside down milk will drop out slowly. If the opening is too large, the kitten can choke itself. If it is too small, air is liable to be sucked in. Check the hole is not blocked up.
