Orphaned Animals

Tragically some newborn animals lose their mothers or occasionally need to be separated from them to be handraised.  The process is made easier by using the right equipment and ensuring that the newborn gets sufficient colostrum to build up immunity against disease.  We have animal drinking bottles, teats and feeders as well as specialised milk powder, including milk powder for raising orphaned kangaroos.

It will fit all feeders with 22mm teat holes.  ..

The survival of calves is dependent on them receiving at least 1.5 litres of good quality colostrum within the first few hours of life. They will usually receive this from their mother through their milk. If they are unable to receive it this way it is important to intervene as the colostrum contains antibodies which help give the animal immunity. This is where the Bovivet calf drencher comes in h..
