Beaphar Lactol Kitten
A complete milk replacer for new-born and orphaned kittens. With added DHA, taurine, essential vitamins and minerals, Beaphar Lactol Kitten Milk provides the very best start in life. Suitable for weaning, pregnancy, lactation and sick or convalescing cats
BeapharLactol Kitten Milk is a complete milk replacement feed for new-born and orphaned kittens which has saved the lives of countless young animals.
Beaphar Lactol has a superior amino acid content and is enriched with essential vitamins and minerals, providing a perfectly balanced complete feed. Made from easily digested whey products it closely resembles natural queens milk. Ultra-filtration concentrates the proteins, and a slow drying process during production preserves the protein molecules, making it more nutritionally valuable.
Contains DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid), which has been shown to help cognitive development and visual acuity.
Beaphar Lactol Kitten Milk can also be used for weaning kittens, pregnant or lactating queens and sick or convalescing animals.
Using the scoop provided, add Beaphar Lactol Kitten Milk to warm water (allow boiled water to cool) and stir until completely dissolved. Allow to cool until lukewarm (38°C or blood temperature).
The use of proper feeding equipment is highly recommended, such as the Beaphar Feeding Set or Beaphar Feeding Syringes. These should always be clean and sterile. Beaphar Lactol can also be mixed with cold water for older cats.
Prepared Beaphar Lactol Kitten can be refrigerated for 24 hours but should be reheated to 38°C or blood temperature for young animals.
