Specially-designed nipples and bottles packaged in a kit for easy nursing of small or larger baby animals. The nursing action of bottle feeding helps develop little ones develop facial muscles and stimulates the normal flow of saliva. Pet Ag Nursing Kits come with bottle, flexible latex Nature's Match Nipples (which simulate the milking action of a mother's nipple), and a cleaning brush that easily fits into the bottle for washing convenience. Reusable nipples are rugged enough to be sanitized with boiling water for reuse.
2 oz kit includes: 2 oz bottle, 5 nipples (3 standard, 1 elongated, and 1 ballooned) and cleaning brush: ideal for smaller baby animals.
4 oz kit includes: 4 oz bottle, 3 nipples (2 standard, 1 narrow tip) and cleaning brush: ideal for larger baby animals.
Directions for Use
Before use, make a hole in the nipple using one of the following methods:
- Cross cut nipple with a razor blade.
- Using a strong needle or cuticle scissors, enter and exit the tip of the nipple as though you were making a very small stitch or snip, pull the needle out removing a small piece of the nipple.
Check flow with water. A steady drip or thin stream should be achieved when a slight pressure is applied to the nipple.
If one or more of the animals is ill, use a different bottle or feed ill animal last.
Once your animal has teeth, it is advisable that you monitor the nipple's condition for your animal's safety.
Wash bottle, cap, and nipple with hot soapy water using bottle brush, and rinse thoroughly after each feeding session. If the animal is too small or weak to nurse, feed using a syringe or eye dropper until the animal is capable of nursing from a bottle.
Consult your veterinarian for specific advice on the care and treatment of your animal.
