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 handy to help give colostrum to young animals.
The Bovivet rigid probe calf drencher allows for one hand operation, whilst the other hand holds the calf's head.
The Bovivet flexible probe calf drencher allows for easy positioning of the probe inside the mouth without the bottle getting in the way.
With both versions, the end of the probe has a knob to help reduce the chance of the probe going into the lungs. The container holds 2 litres.
