Manufacturers Instructions for use - please ensure all instructions provided on the product are followed closely

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.

Use the table below for approximate feeding guidelines.

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.
