Am looking for a liquid iron supplement
I recommend using an iron supplement intended for use in rabbits rather than a milk product. Unfortunately there are no iron only supplements, however a general use support supplement will also provide iron. VetCal Pro Gel High Calorie Supplement would be a good choice, especially if your rabbit needs the extra iron as they are recovering from an illness.
Our veterinary clinic often has baby bats needing hand-rearing - would this milk replacer be suitable?
Thanks in advance!
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.
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?
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.
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?
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.
