Rabbit Milk Replacer is a nutritionally balanced milk substitute for all rabbit breeds.

Use for orphaned kits, large litters or when the mother’s milk is limited.

Rabbit milk is very high in solids with elevated levels of protein and fat.

The energy content is more than three times that of cow’s milk.

However, rabbit milk is low in lactose, with kits being intolerant to cow’s milk formulas.

The high energy content of rabbit milk means that young are fed infrequently, usually only once or twice a day.

Rabbit milk is unique that it contains ‘milk oil’ which are medium-chain fatty acids that have antibacterial activity in the stomach.

This helps sterilise the gut from pathogens and prevents digestive upset.

Benefits of Wombaroo Rabbit Milk Replacer

  • Closely resembles Rabbit Milk – formulated to match the composition of mother’s milk, with added vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids (omega 3 & 6).
  • Elevated Protein & Fat Content – to cater for the rapid growth rate and high energy intake of kits.
  • Contains ‘Milk Oil’ – antimicrobial fatty acids that are essential for good gut health.

Using Rabbit Milk Replacer

  • Make-up milk at a concentration of 180g per 500mL, in accordance with the directions on the pack.
  • Success in rearing young rabbits greatly improves if they receive colostrum at birth.
  • Kits that don’t get colostrum from the mother can be fed Impact Colostrum Supplement.
  • Commence feeding Wombaroo after the initial feeds of colostrum.
  • Make-up milk at a concentration of 360g per litre, in accordance with the directions on the pack.
  • Milk can be stored in the fridge for a day or frozen for up to 2 weeks.
  • Small quantities can be frozen in ice-cube trays so that the required daily feed volumes can be easily thawed out.
  • When feeding, warm milk to about 35°C and feed from a syringe or bottle and teat (Wombaroo “C” or “P” type teats are recommended).
  • Refer to the guidelines on the pack for feed rates.
  • Do not overfeed as this can lead to diarrhoea.
  • Weigh kits regularly to verify consistent weight gains.
