How to Use: Ensure all equipment is clean and sterile before use, preferably by soaking in a sterilising solution.
- Mix the milk replacer as directed and allow to cool until lukewarm (38°C or blood temperature).
- Puncture the top of the teat with a thick needle or cut a small piece off the top with scissors. Be careful: too large an opening in the teat can cause gagging
- Put a suitable amount of prepared milk replacer into the bottle and ensure it is re-secured properly. If using Beaphar Lactol, refer to the feeding guidelines on the tub.
- Gently insert the teat into the animals mouth, release a few drops into the cheek and allow to swallow. DO NOT SQUEEZE HARD in case you force liquid into the lungs.
- Do not allow young animals to chew on the teat. If an animal is chewing rather than sucking, it has finished feeding and the bottle should be withdrawn.
- Clean the bottle and rubber teat thoroughly after each use. If dish-washing liquid is used, rinse thoroughly afterwards.
Be prepared to repeat this every 2-3 hours until the animal is strong enough to feed from a bottle.
