Instructions

The correct feeding technique must be used in order to prevent injury to the bird or inhalation of the formula that could result in pneumonia or death.

Birds:

Step 1: Gently feel the crop to determine that it is almost empty before feeding

Step 2: Mix fresh: 1 part dry formula to 1-3 parts bottled “drinking water” heated to approximately 103°F (39°C). Do not microwave. Allow to cool to lukewarm

Step 3: Feeding with a tube is probably the most universally successful technique. As one faces the bird, position the tube to enter the oral cavity from the left side of the bird’s beak and direct it toward the right side of the bird’s neck. Deposit the food into the bird’s crop

Step 4: Feed the bird until the crop is full but not overstuffed and clean the excess formula from the bird’s beak, feathers and enclosure. Repeat as often as needed to maintain or increase the bird’s body weight

Other Animals:

Step 1: Mix fresh: 1 part dry formula to 2-3 parts warmed (around 39°C/103°F) drinking water, or to a desired consistency. Do not microwave. Allow to cool to lukewarm

Step 2: Tube feed or spoon feed warmed formula based on veterinary recommendations

Step 3: Repeat feeding as necessary to maintain or increase the animal's body weight. Recovery is a low-fibre diet and is easy to digest, therefore frequent feeding may be necessary
