Milk Replacer For Kittens And Food Supplement For Adult Cats

Colostrum

DHA

Viable (live) Naturally Occurring Micro-Organisms

POWDER

Pro-Biolac is a nutritionally complete milk replacer to be fed as a nutritional supplement when the supply of queen’s milk is inadequate or as the sole ration for orphan kittens. When indicated, Pro-Biolac may be used to fortify the ration of queens to help meet the increased nutritional requirements in late gestation and early lactation. Whenever possible kittens should receive colostrum (queen’s first milk) for the first 2 days, since this supplies antibodies essential to disease resistance in early life.

MIXING INSTRUCTIONS:

50 g: To make 8 fl. oz. of Pro-Biolac, add warm water approximately halfway to fill line. Shake well. Then fill of all the way to fill line with warm water and shake until all powder is dissolved. Refrigerate after mixing. Discard if not used within 24 hours after mixing. To mix less than 8 oz. of formula, add 2 parts powder to 3 parts warm water and mix until all powder is dissolved.

200 g: Using the enclosed (1 Tbsp.) scoop, add 2 scoops powder to 3 scoops warm water. Mix until all powder is dissolved. This dilution will make approximately 60 ml (2 oz.) of formula. Do not prepare more formula than can be used in 24 hours. Refrigerate reconstituted formula.

FEEDING INSTRUCTIONS:

50 g: Reconstituted Pro-Biolac solution should be fed at body temperature. Use of a nurser bottle is recommended. Feed kittens at least 2 tablespoons (30 ml) per 4 ounces (113 g) of body weight daily. Divide the daily feeding amount into equal portions for each feeding. For the first 4 days of feeding Pro-Biolac the daily amount should be divided into 6 to 8 feedings. The number of feedings can then be gradually reduced to 4 per day (dividing the daily volumes into 4 equal parts). Kittens should be allowed to consume as much formula as they want during each feeding. Stool consistency provides a measure of the appropriate feeding level. If diarrhea develops, consult your veterinarian for advice. Cleanliness of feeding equipment (nursing bottle/bowl) is extremely important. Always wash with hot soapy water. Rinse and dry well after each use.

Pregnant and lactating queens: Feed 2 tsp (4 g) per 5 lbs. (2.2 kg) body weight daily until 2 weeks after queening.

200 g: Feed reconstituted formula at body temperature. Use of a nurser bottle is recommended. Feed kittens at least 2 tablespoons (30 ml) of formula per 4 ounces (113 g) of body weight daily. Divide the daily feeding amount into equal portions for each feeding. Smaller or younger kittens will need to be fed 6 to 8 times daily. Older and larger kittens may do well being fed 4 times per day. Allow kittens to eat as much formula as they want during each feeding. Increase or decrease the amount fed based on the individual needs of each kitten. If diarrhea develops, consult your veterinarian for advice. Always wash feeding and mixing utensils with hot soapy water, rinse well, and dry after each use.

Weaning Kittens: When kittens are old enough to lap, begin offering reconstituted formula in a shallow bowl. After kittens begin lapping from a bowl, begin mixing reconstituted formula with small amounts of kitten food to make a thin gruel. Gradually increase the amount of kitten food and decrease the amount of formula until kittens are eating only kitten food. Ensure that fresh water is always available.

Pregnant and lactating queens: Feed 2 teaspoons (4 g) per 5 lbs. (2.2 kg) body weight daily until 2 weeks after queening.

Growing Kittens, Show Cats and Convalescing Cats: Supplement regular ration with 1 teaspoon (2 g) of Pro-Biolac per 5 lbs. (2.2 kg) body weight daily.
