Nursers with Nipples
If a newborn puppy or kitten isn’t able to nurse well enough because it’s too small, too weak, or has too much competition from litter mates, you can supplement with formula given by a bottle, tube or syringe.
Feeding with a syringe nurser is a preferred choice by many breeders as you can easily see how much milk your baby is taking with minimal to no air intake
DO NOT allow the puppy or kitten to chew on the teat. If you find them chewing, rather than sucking, it has finished feeding and the syringe should be withdrawn.
Cleaning: Clean the Syringe and teat thoroughly after each use. To clean these Syringe nursers you can remove the white plunger fully then clean both parts with hot NOT BOILING soapy water. We find that using warm soapy water then rinsed with cool boiled water or a cold sterilise solution works best. If sterilising solution is used, rinse thoroughly afterwards.
NOTE: Please be advised that the ink on the syringes may not stay on with multiple cleanings. We advise to either mark the syringe with a marker or to put a clear varnish over the graduations, and purchasing some spare nursers as a backup.
These o-ring syringes will out last most other syringes that are available
