BeapharLactol Kitten Milk is a complete milk replacement feed for new-born and orphaned kittens which has saved the lives of countless young animals. Beaphar Lactol has a superior amino acid content and is enriched with essential vitamins and minerals, providing a perfectly balanced complete feed. Made from easily digested whey products it closely resembles natural queens milk. Ultra-filtration concentrates the proteins, and a slow drying process during production preserves the protein molecules, making it more nutritionally valuable. Contains DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid), which has been shown to help cognitive development and visual acuity. Beaphar Lactol Kitten Milk can also be used for weaning kittens, pregnant or lactating queens and sick or convalescing animals.
How to use Beaphar Lactol Powder Milk for Kittens:
Using the scoop provided, add Beaphar Lactol Kitten Milk to warm water (allow boiled water to cool) and stir until completely dissolved. Allow to cool 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. Beaphar Lactol can also be mixed with cold water for older cats.
Prepared Beaphar Lactol Kitten can be refrigerated for 24 hours but should be reheated to 38°C or blood temperature for young animals.
COMPLETE DIET: For un-weaned kittens. It is important to weigh young kittens on a daily basis so that you can compare their daily growth increase with the growth tables from your breeder or vet.
Recommended dilution: Add 31g (7 level scoops) to 100ml warm water. 1 litre of prepared Beaphar Lactol Kitten Milk contains approximately 1250 kcal.
