DescriptionBeaphar’s core purpose is to assist every pet owner to care for their pets in the best possible way, thereby enabling all pets to live healthy, happy, long lives, and owners to reap the rewards that animal companionship brings. Beaphar Lactol Kitten Milk is a complete milk replacement feed specially formulated for newborn and orphaned kittens. The milk contains DHA, which has been shown to help cognitive development and visual acuity, and also contains Taurine and Biotin, which are essential for the development of healthy kittens. Taurine helps with the development and maintenance of a healthy heart and vision, while Biotin gives a strong and healthy coat. Lactol is made from easily digested whey products and closely resembles natural queen’s milk. Ultra-filtration concentrates the proteins, and a slow drying process during production preserves the protein molecules, making it more nutritionally valuable. Lactol has a superior amino acid content, and is enriched with vitamins and minerals, providing a perfectly balanced complete feed. It can also be used for weaning kittens, pregnant or lactating cats, or on sick or convalescing animals.
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.
