All Star All Milk Universal Instant Milk Replacer (25385-739)
I rescued a kitten who was at most 3 weeks old. This milk replacer is so much more reasonably priced than the usual kitten formula and all our barn cats like it. The kitten especially loves it! It smells so good!
Great for kitten and feral cat support
I got a bucket of this to support some kittens I was fostering that by rights should have all died. The feral Queen abandoned them for some unknown reason and these kittens were of an age that they typically don't make it. The whole litter thrived on this milk replacer. I'd mix it up at a four to one ratio as suggested just with hot tap water in a glass bottle and both let the kitten self feed as well as used a droper when necessary. I especially liked that the formula had probiotics already incorporated and it was easy slipping any needed medication into the liquid. My only recommendation — specifically for cats — is to supplement the formula with a little taurine which is an essential nutrient specific to cats.
Since that time I've also used it to support cats I've cared for that are having nutritional issues due to a variety of issues. The formula is basically a high calorie mix of protean and fat so if you have mammals in general that are struggling, this is a good way to get added calories into them.
I use it also for its probiotic content when I've had to treat cats with a round of antibiotics. It tends to go down easy and it much easier to work with than struggling with yogurt which, besides being dairy, is hit or miss with getting cats to eat it.
Love this product!
I was first introduced to the more expensive version of this, Foster Care for Dogs, at my work. We use this product for any dogs who have diarrhea or as another add in to their food if they are not eating. It is awesome. I decided that I wanted this stuff for my dogs as a food supplement. They love it, with or without a little water mixed in.
smells so good U want to drink it yourself!
We 1st tried this after getting several bad cans of goat milk and Esbilac... Apparently the heat does something to the fat used in making those products and it spoils, even though the expiration date isn't for months or a year to come...THE All star milk was recommended to us by a friend, it is very easy to digest, poos are nice, it mixes easy with boiling water. Stores nicely and the babies love it. It smells like creamy custard/vanilla pudding...I want to lick it off my fingers when I make it. But it says not for human consumption, so I have never tried it. We have purchased maybe 20 buckets and I think only one time did I ever get a bad one. The bucket was smashed in transit.. so I think the seal was broken, is what happened on that one. And that was 2-3 years ago.
Very good value
I bought this replacer for my eight feral cats/kittens. Mama cat is very small. They love it! I needed something that was of high quality, good quantity, and reasonably priced. This replacer fit the bill. They are thriving and are very healthy. The neighborhood Skunk has put his seal of approval on it as well. I will be buying more
