Feeding a lactating female and newborn Pets
The birth of a pet is the same joyful and exciting event AS the birth of a child, Which must be prepared in ADVANCE.
The most important thing for newborns is full nutrition. The best food for newly born kittens and puppies, of course, is the mother’s milk, and its absence or insufficient amount can lead to the death of the litter.
In order to avoid a tragedy, the main task of conscientious owners is to organize a full nutrition of the lactating female and enrich her diet with all the vital vitamins, micro-and macroelements. Animal owners will be helped by the Salvikal feed additive developed by Beaphar for cats and dogs, which contains a full complex of vitamins (A, D, C, E, K, H, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B9, B12) and minerals (Zn, Cu, Fe, I, Co, Mn, K, Na, Mg, increased calcium content — 23% and phosphorus — 7%), fiber, and protein. Salvikal helps stimulate lactation and produce more milk. In case of weak lactation or death of the mother, as well as when finding abandoned/ lost kittens/puppies, artificial feeding with milk formula is recommended up to 35 days of age. Often inexperienced owners use cow’s milk for this, which is a serious mistake, since it has a lower content of fat and protein.
Beaphar’s Kitty and Puppy Milk formula can be a complete replacement for mother’s milk. its composition is close to natural cat’s and bitch’s milk, perfectly balanced in terms of nutrients (it contains proteins in an easily digestible form), vital amino acids, vitamins, and minerals. Beaphar’s kitty and Puppy Milk mixes differ in % fat content and protein content (for kittens, milk is more nutritious and energy-intensive). Beaphar formula is also recommended to be added to the diet of pregnant and lactating females to increase the production of their own milk. As a result, feeding the Salvikal vitamin mix to the female during pregnancy and lactation, as well as using the kitty and Puppy Milk formula for the first feeding of babies, you are guaranteed to get a strong healthy offspring!
