Beaphar Feeding Syringes
Beaphar Feeding Syringes are suitable for feeding young animals by hand or for force-feeding sick and weak animals. They are also suitable for administering liquid medicine. The pack contains two 14ml feeding syringes; one with a tapered end for slow feeding and one with a blunt end for quick feeding.
2 x 14ml Feeding Syringes
- Ensure that all equipment is clean and sterile before use, preferably by soaking in a sterilising solution.
- Mix the feed as required and allow to cool to body temperature (38ºC).
- Fill the blunt ended feeding syringe with the feeding solution and gently press the plunger to ensure the liquid is flowing.
- You can wrap the animal in a towel to restrain limbs whilst feeding, if necessary.
- Squeeze a little of the liquid feed out of the feeding syringe and touch it onto the animal's tongue. This should feel like a nipple and trigger the suckling reflex. Continue to feed the animal until it seems to have eaten enough.
- If this method doesn't seem to work, fill the tapered tip syringe with the feed. Gently insert this into the animals mouth and release a few drops into the cheek and allow the animal to swallow. Never squeeze too much feed out of the syringe at a time, as the feed could enter the lungs.
- Repeat this feeding method every two to three hours until the animal is strong enough to drink from a bottle.

These syringes are ridiculously stiff, resulting in nothing coming out at first, followed by a huge jet of liquid. After one attempt with my puppies I gave up as I didn't want to risk shooting it in to their lungs!
