Milk replacer for baby bat

Sheryl

Hi,
Our veterinary clinic often has baby bats needing hand-rearing - would this milk replacer be suitable?
Thanks in advance!

  • VioVet Staff

There are no bat specific milk replacers on the market unfortunately. However this product is suitable for

rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, mice, rats, gerbils, hamsters, degus, and hedgehogs weighing more than 50g. Bats are omnivorous mammals and this milk replacer is suitable for similar small mammals. It is highly likely this is the most suitable option however there is no research proving this milk replacer would be safe or not. I recommend contacting your local wildlife center for advice on suitable milk replacers as they would be in the best position to answer.

Small animal milk

SIAN HOLDER

can I use small animal milk for a two an half year old guinea pig to mix with antibiotics to mask the taste?
is the milk tasty and latched onto by guinea pigs easily?

  • VioVet Staff

I do not recommend using milk like this in an adult guinea pig. The digestive system will no longer be adapted to digest milk and it could cause stool abnormalities.
I recommend using a paste feed intended for use in Guinea Pigs. FibrePlex would be a great choice as it also contains a probiotic to support the intestinal system with the antibiotics being given. Oxbow critical care is also a good option, this is a liquid feed intended for use in adult Guinea Pigs. Both are grass/fibre based so should be tasty to your Guinea Pig.

Feeding a baby squirrel

Diane

I am currently feeding a 4 week squirrel with Beaphar kitten milk - would the small animal milk or puppy milk be better suited to a squirrel’s nutritional needs?

  • VioVet Staff

Kittens are carnivores whilst squirrels are Omnivores, similar to hamsters/hedgehogs etc that the Small Animal Milk is intended for. It is therefore likely the Small Animal Milk is more appropriate. However it was not formulated with squirrels in mind so I cannot be 100% certain of this, any use in squirrels is off license.
