CAT (KITTEN) MILK REPLACER

Wombaroo Cat Milk Replacer is a highly digestible, easily prepared milk substitute formulated to closely resemble the nutrient composition of queen milk. Wombaroo contains acceptable levels of taurine and arachidonic acid, nutrients that are essential for growing cats.  Use Wombaroo for hand-rearing orphaned kittens or supplementing queens with large litters.

HAND-REARING: Success in hand-rearing kittens greatly improves if they receive colostrum at birth. Impact Colostrum Replacer is available for kittens that did not get colostrum from the queen. Keep kittens in a clean, draught-free environment at about 30 C. Warm Wombaroo to about 35 C. Feed from a bottle with teat every 2 hours for the first three days, reducing this to every 4 hours by the end of the first week. Stimulate kittens to defaecate and urinate after each feed. During the second week reduce feeding to six hourly intervals. Encourage kittens to lap once they arise are open and voluntary bowel motions begin. To avoid dehydration during periods of hot weather give kittens a drink of pre-boiled water between feeds. Always offer kittens drinking water once their eyes open and they become mobile. Consult your veterinarian or breeder for particular advice about caring for your breed of kitten.

GROWTH: Kitten body weight should increase by 10 to 15g per day. Weigh kittens regularly to verify weight gains and to determine milk feed volume. Overfeeding milk can cause diarrhoea so feed the suggested volumes in our tables.

WEANING: When kittens are about four weeks old they should show interest in solid food. To entice them to eat solids offer a small portion of specially formulated kitten dry food soaked in Wombaroo. Once they start to eat solid food continue to increase the solids and reduce the milk in their diet until they are fully weaned at about eight weeks.

Consult your veterinarian for more advice.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE: Wombaroo Cat Milk Replacer is a powder and is available in a pack to make 1 litre.  It also comes in packs of 1kg, 5kg, 10kg and 20kg.  If unopened the powder remained stable for up to 18 months if stored below 30 C. and protected from moisture.

To make one litre of milk add 215g of powder to 400ml of warm pre-boiled water and mixed into a paste. Then make up to one litre with warm pre-boiled water and mix thoroughly. Milk can be mixed using an electric whisk. Prepared milk can be stored for 24 hours if refrigerated, or up to two weeks if frozen. Milk that has been thawed should be well mixed before use and not refrozen.

ECONOMY: Wombaroo not only provides the best nutrition for your kittens it is also inexpensive to use. Based on recommended retail price it would only cost a few cents per day to rear a kitten.
