Mixing & Feeding Instructions

Measuring cup in each pail holds approximately 4 oz dry weight.

CALVES: Feed colostrum within the first 30 minutes after birth. Feed an additional 2 quarts at 6 to 12 hours of age and continue feeding colostrum for the first 3 days. No whole milk is required after the colostrum feeding period when calf milk replacer is used. Mix milk replacer powder at the rate of 2 cups (8 oz of dry powder) per 2 quarts of warm water (100°-120° F). Feed approximately 2 quarts of reconstituted milk replacer TWICE A DAY. Calves will vary in feed requirements depending on size and age. When feeding to larger numbers of calves, mix 1 pound of dry powder (by weight) to 1 gallon of warm water.

PIGLETS: Mix 1 cup of dry powder with 1 quart of warm water and feed in shallow feeder. Keep fresh milk in front of piglets at all times. Sprinkle dry powder on starter feeds to assist in weaning.

FOALS: Mix 1-1/2 cups of dry powder with 1 quart of warm water and feed 4 times per day for the first week of life. From week 2 through 4, mix 2 cups of powder with 1-1/3 quarts of water and feed 3 times per day. Mix 3 cups with 3 quarts of water and feed 2 times per day for the next 2 weeks. Add 1/4 lb. of 16% protein grain ration per day at 2 weeks of age and increase to match appetite. Sprinkle 1 cup of dry powder on top of ration twice daily.

KIDS: Feed heat-treated colostrum during the first day of life. (Heat to 135° F and hold at this temperature for 1 hour.) Mix 1 cup of dry powder in 1-1/2 pints of 110°-120° F water, then cool to 90°-100° F for hand feeding. Feed 3 to 4 times a day for the first 5 days, then feed twice a day until weaned. Feed as much as the animal will drink, starting with 1 pint per feeding and increasing to 1-1/2 pints when feeding twice a day. Provide hay and a grain mix in self-feeders when kids are 1 week old.

PUPPIES & KITTENS: Mix 1/2 cup of milk replacer powder into 2 cups of water. Reconstituted milk replacer should be fed at the daily rate of 2 tablespoons per 1/4 lb. of body weight and divided into equal portions for each feeding. Needs will vary depending on individual size, but small puppies and kittens should be fed every 2 to 3 hours for the first 2 weeks. Feed at room temperature. To determine correct feeding, weigh 3 times a week.

ADULT DOGS & CATS: When used as a food supplement for adult animals during convalescence, to combat stress in show dogs and show cats, or in old age: Feed as liquid or sprinkle dry over feed at the rate of 1 tablespoon per 5 lbs. of body weight in dogs or 1 teaspoon per 5 lbs. of body weight in cats. For pregnant or lactating dogs and cats: Double the amount per 5 lbs. of body weight and feed until 2 weeks after giving birth.

NOTE: VetOne Milk Replacer is not recommended for use in lambs. Lambs should be fed a milk replacer formulated specifically for lambs.

FOR BEST RESULTS:

Individual animals vary in their nutritional needs and amounts of milk replacer should be adjusted to those needs. Always use good judgment and caution.

1. Baby animals should receive at least one feeding of colostrum milk. Follow instructions for each species carefully.

2. Always feed at regular intervals. Make any changes gradually.

3. Wash all feeding equipment and utensils after each use.

4. Keep animals in clean, well-ventilated area free from drafts. Avoid sudden changes in temperature.

5. To assist in weaning, sprinkle dry powder on top of dry ration.

Storage

Keep lid tightly closed and store in a dry place.
