WOMBAROO Cat Milk Replacer 1KG Makes Up To 5 Liters
  • Wombaroo Cat Milk Replacer is a nutritionally balanced milk substitute for kittens of all breeds

  • Use for orphaned kittens or when mother’s milk is limited

Key Features

  • Specifically formulated to match the composition of the mother’s milk
  • High in Whey Proteins - for improved growth rate of kittens
  • Elevated Taurine Content - an essential nutrient for the development of healthy kittens

Note

  • Success in hand-rearing kittens greatly improves if they receive colostrum at birth. Kittens that don’t get colostrum from the mother can be fed Impact Colostrum Supplement
  • Commence feeding Cat Milk Replacer after the initial feeds of colostrum.

Making up Milk

  • To make 1 litre of milk: Add 215g of powder to 850ml of warm water
  • To make 90mls of milk: Add 20g of powder to 80ml of warm water
  • Add half the water to the powder first and mix to a paste
  • Then add the remaining water and mix thoroughly
  • Pre-boil the water to ensure it is sterilised
  • If the water is too hot it can cause the milk to curdle
  • If it is too cold then it will be difficult to disperse the powder
  • Wombaroo contains elevated protein levels, so the milk needs to be well mixed to prevent it from separating out
  • An electric whisk can be used for mixing larger quantities
  • Milk can be stored in the fridge for up to a day or can be frozen for up to 2 weeks
  • It is useful to make-up larger quantities and store it frozen in small portions (eg ice cube trays), so that the required daily feed volumes can be easily thawed out
  • Once thawed out, discard any unused milk, and wash feeding utensils thoroughly

Feeding

  • Warm milk to about 35°C
  • Feed from a bottle with teat, a Wombaroo C Teat or Wombaroo P Teat is recommended
  • In emergency cases tube feeding may be required (buy tube here)
  • Feed every 2 hours for the first 3 days, reducing this to every 4 hours by the end of the first week
  • During the second week reduce feeding to 6 hourly intervals
  • Stimulate kittens to defecate and urinate after each feed
  • Encourage kittens to lap once their eyes 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 are 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 about 10-15g per day
  • It is important to weigh kittens regularly to verify weight gains and determine the volume of milk to feed
  • Overfeeding milk can cause diarrhoea so feed the suggested volumes in our tables

Weaning

  • When kittens are about 4 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 8 weeks
