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 feed 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 provide enough milk, etc. However, when raising animals by hand, 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 raising motherless animals with a milk replacer, first consult a veterinarian to discuss what medical care is required, such as giving an electrolyte solution.

Preparation method

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

To feed

Unfortunately, it is not possible to provide 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 contains daily guidelines. Weigh and monitor the animals regularly to closely monitor growth and weight. Look carefully 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.

Tips and guidelines for rabbits

Preparing milk 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 to hand heat (35-38°C).

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

Feed 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.

If the opening is too large, an animal can choke, but if the opening 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 blocked.

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

Look carefully 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 whether the weight is increasing.

Provide a dry, warm environment for the fry (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 for 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 to hand heat (35-38°C).

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

To feed, gently wrap the guinea pigs in a cloth with the snout out. Feed while the guinea pig is sitting upright and slightly tilted forward.

If the opening is too large, an animal can choke, but if the opening 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 blocked.

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

Gently massage the abdomen after feeding to stimulate bowel movements.

Weigh the animals regularly to check whether the weight is increasing.

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

Guinea pigs can also be given 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+ Guinea Pig. From the 3rd week onwards, milk feeding can be reduced and they can start eating completely solid food.

Tips and guidelines for 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 to hand heat (35-38°C).

From a few days of age / for larger chinchillas, a feeding bottle can be used. Make sure that the syringe or drinking bottle is hygienically cleaned before each use.

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 feed them while they are standing upright and slightly tilted forward. Even at an older age, young chinchillas sometimes like to receive milk wrapped in a cloth.

If the opening is too large, an animal can choke, but if the opening 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 blocked.

Carefully insert the syringe/pacifier from the side into the mouth, give one drop and wait until the chinchilla has finished it before giving the next one.

Look carefully 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.

Gently massage the tummy after feeding to stimulate bowel movements if the father does not do this. The father and others of his kind who are already present in the cage are very important anyway because they will copy/learn behavior from this.

Weigh the animals regularly to check whether the weight is increasing.

A heat source is not desirable for chinchillas.

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

Tips and guidelines mice

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 to hand heat (35-38°C).

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.
