    PetAg® Nursing Kits contain the equipment needed to feed newborn animals. The 2 oz Kit, designed for smaller animals, includes one 2 oz (60 ml) bottle, three regular nipples, one elongated nipple, one balloon nipple and one cleaning brush. The 4 oz Kit, made for larger animals, includes one 4 oz (120 ml) bottle, two regular nipples, a natural look and feel nursing nipple and one cleaning brush. Each bottle features graduation marks on the side in tablespoon (15 ml) increments to make monitoring food intake easier. All nipples are flexible, latex-free, silicone nipples and replicate the natural feeding action of a mother's nipple. There are no holes in the nipples allowing you to customize the flow of the formula or weaning food. Both bottle and nipples are durable enough to stand up to hard use and can be sanitized with boiling water.
    Replacement packages of 2 oz Regular Nipples and 2 oz Elongated Nipples can be purchased separately. Both the 2 oz Regular Nipples and 2 oz Elongated Nipples will fit on luer-lock syringes.

    1 (one) 4 oz (120 ml) bottle with graduated markings in tablespoon increments
    2 (two) regular silicone nipples
    1 (one) natural look and feel nursing nipple
    1 (one) bottle cleaning brush

    Additional 2 oz Regular Nipples and 2 oz Elongated Nipples can be purchased separately. Elongated Nipples are packaged with 5 (five) nipples per package, and Regular Nipples are available in 5 (five) or 50 (fifty) nipples per package.
    Directions for Use: Before use make a hole in the nipple using one of the following methods: cross cut nipple with a razor blade or using a strong needle or cuticle scissors, enter and exit the tip of the nipple as though you were making a very small stitch or snip, pull the needle out removing a small piece of the nipple. Check the nipple flow with water. A steady drip or thin stream should be achieved when a slight pressure is applied to the nipple. If one or more of the animals is ill use a different bottle or feed ill animal last. Wash bottle, cap, and nipple with hot soapy water and rinse thoroughly after each feeding session. If animal is too small or weak to nurse, feed with a syringe or eye dropper until the animal is capable of nursing from a bottle.
    For use with many species of small animals including puppies, kittens, rabbits, and other wildlife or exotic pets.

    Can be dangerous for kittens 4 weeks+ or when they start to chew

    One of my four week-old orphaned kittens just chewed off and ate part of the nipple off of this bottle. About 3/16" wide and about 1/4" long. This is the first time this has ever happened. Am very worried for him. Will be the last time I use a bottle for these little ones. Am switching to a bowl and/or syringe feeding.

    Bottle-Feeding Kittens..............

    Cons:
    There are two different types of nipples (among many, of course) that are suitable for kittens. Pet Ag doesn't make the one for newborms, which is small, soft like mom's teat, and designed for the kneading young kittens do to make the milk come down. The other nipple is of a harder material and is the third one from the left in the picture from Pet Ag. After 550 kittens in over 13 years, we've had several older kittens chew off the tips and poop out the remains several days later. No side affects and definitely no need for panic or surgery. Otherwise, the kittens have elongated the nipples over time, so throw away when the nipples get soft or more than 1/4 longer in size than when they were new. Kittens get teeth at three weeks of age, so buying packs of 50 nipples from Pet Ag through Revival has allowed us to NOT lose a single kitten from problems with bottles, nipples, or feeding. Due diligence is ALWAYS the key to any product used with tiny animals, along with a calm demeanor and gentle hands. And the rewards are wonderful!

    Do not use for chewing kittens

    Our 4.5 week old kitten swallowed the end of the nipple and we nearly lost her. We thought the dog had bitten it off (long story), and we didn't know what was wrong when she started vomiting and diarrhea 1 week later. After a trip to the emergency vet and anti-emetics, she improved and nipple came out (approx 10 days after swallowed) in the poop which was when we figured out what happened. It had swelled to a very large size in her system. We are lucky she is alive. I would never use these again, or switch immediately to dropper or syringe once they start to try to chew.

    Lifesaver but pay attention

    I simply can not believe the review of needing to change the nipples several times during a feeding. Clearly a mistake. The only times I have run into a problem is with an older kitten that does not want to wean and they chew. Have we ever had one chew off a nipple in the 14 years I have been bottle feeding, yes. Pay attention to what the kitten is doing. We have had two swallow the nipple tip and neither one ever showed any signs of distress or needing any type of surgery. They simply pooped it out. The only possible problem I can see is maybe the feeder is cutting the tip in a way that severely weakens it. I squeeze the tip between my fingers and using very tiny sharp scissors cut a small rounded hole. I do this instead of making an X at the top which I believe could compromise the integrity of the nipple. Hope this helps.
