Rodent and rabbit milk contains a balanced content of fats and essential vitamins and minerals for the best start in life.

There are many reasons to hand-raise or supplement small animals such as rabbits, hedgehogs or rodents. For example, if the animals stop eating, if the mother no longer accepts her young, if the mother cannot give enough milk, etc. When raising animals by hand, however, it is always important to consult an expert or veterinarian beforehand to determine whether medical care, such as giving an electrolyte solution, is necessary.

Important

Do not use on hedgehogs smaller than 50g unless directed by a veterinarian. When rearing orphaned animals on a milk replacer, consult a veterinarian first to discuss any medical care required, for example giving an electrolyte solution.

Method of preparation

Add the Beaphar Rodent and Rabbit Milk to water at 50-60°C using the measuring scoop and mix until completely dissolved. Let the milk cool down to hand heat (35-38°C). After preparation, the milk can be stored in the refrigerator for a maximum of 24 hours. Before giving the milk, warm to body temperature and shake well.

To feed

Unfortunately it is not possible to give very accurate daily amounts for this milk replacer due to variations in the species, age, size and breed of animals for which this food is suitable. The table in the package leaflet therefore contains daily guidelines. Weigh and check the animals regularly to closely monitor growth and weight. Take a good look at how much the animal can drink. Stop feeding immediately if milk comes out of the nose. The stomach is then full or the milk flow is too fast. Feeding and caring for the young animals requires extra knowledge and care.

Rabbit tips and guidelines

Milk preparation for rabbits: Add 2 scoops (9 grams) of Beaphar Rodent and Rabbit Milk to 15ml of warm (50-60°C) water. Mix until completely dissolved. Let the milk cool down to hand heat (35-38°C).

Administer the milk to very young rabbits with a feed syringe or pipette (approx. 1ml); practice beforehand to see how much food comes out of the syringe/pipette. From a few days of age / with larger rabbits, a feeding bottle can be used. Ensure that the sprayer or drinking bottle is hygienically cleaned before each use.

Give the food while the rabbit is sitting upright and slightly tilted forward. Some bunnies will only drink if you gently wrap them in a cloth or place the cloth over them.

With an opening that is too large, an animal can choke, with an opening that is too small, the animal often sucks in air. Some bunnies are very greedy and others drink drop by drop; adjust the opening accordingly. Also check regularly that the opening is not clogged.

Carefully insert the syringe / teat into the mouth from the side.

Take a good look at how much the animal can drink. Stop feeding immediately if milk comes out of the nose. The stomach is then full or the milk flow is too fast.

Weigh the animals regularly to check for weight gain.

Provide a dry warm environment for the boy (e.g. with a heat source such as a heat lamp or hot water bottle).

Also, give bunnies access to hay from the start. From 15 days of age you can also offer them kibble, such as Care+ rabbit junior.

Tips and guidelines guinea pigs

Add 1 scoop (4.5 grams) of Beaphar Rodent and Rabbit Milk to 20ml of warm (50-60°C) water. Mix until completely dissolved. Let the milk cool down to hand heat (35-38°C).

Ensure that the sprayer or drinking bottle is hygienically cleaned before each use.

Gently wrap the guinea pigs in a cloth with the snout out to feed. Give the food with the guinea pig sitting upright and slightly tilted forward.

With an opening that is too large, an animal can choke, with an opening that is too small, the animal often sucks in air. Some guinea pigs are greedy and others drink drop by drop; adjust the opening accordingly. Also check regularly that the opening is not clogged.

Guinea pigs may also receive solid food at 2 days of age. Offer them hay or grass and, if they eat it, some kibble with a high crude fiber content, such as Care+ Cavia. From the 3rd week, the milk feed can be reduced and they can start eating solid food.

Tips and guidelines chinchillas

Add 1 scoop (4.5 grams) of Beaphar Rodent and Rabbit Milk to 20ml of warm (50-60°C) water. Mix until completely dissolved. Let the milk cool down to hand heat (35-38°C).

In the beginning you can gently wrap the chinchilla in a cloth with the snout out and feed it lying on its back. At an older age, you can give the food while they are upright and slightly tilted forward. Even at an older age, young chinchillas sometimes like to get the milk wrapped in a cloth.

With an opening that is too large, an animal can choke, with an opening that is too small, the animal often sucks in air. Give the food drop by drop; adjust the opening accordingly. Also check regularly that the opening is not clogged.

Take a good look at how much the animal can drink. Stop feeding immediately if milk comes out of the nose. The stomach is then full or the milk flow is too fast.

After feeding, gently massage the tummy to stimulate defecation if the father does not do this. The father and conspecifics that are already present in the cage are very important anyway because they will copy / learn behavior from this.

Weigh the animals regularly to check for weight gain.

A heat source is not desirable for chinchillas.

Chinchillas may receive solid food such as hay and Care+ Chinchilla from 21 days. You can soak the kibble in the milk. From 7 weeks they can completely switch to solid food.

Ik gebruik de knaagdiermelk voor het aanmaken van Brinta, ik dep het ook in brood en af en toe geef ik he gewoon zo. Vooral jonge, drachtige en zogende dieren hebben er veel baat bij.

Ik geef het ook af en toe aan onze jongen. Ze sterken er goed van aan als ze wat minder van moeders hebben gehad.

Ik gebruik dit zelf om brinta aan te maken. En ik vind het fijne melk ook omdat dit beter is als koffiemelk. En de hamsters eten het ook met deze melk dus alleen maar beter.
