"Kid Feeding Tube"
Saved a few of our young kids using this feeding tube. Works great. We always have one on hand at kidding time.
"It's okay but..."
If I would have knownachos it was just a syringe with a catheter I could have just gotten that from my mom, who is a nurse. Othere than that I am happy with the product.
"Works like a charm!!"
Nice small tube easy to administer colostrum down a weak doeling!! Got her and her 2 siblings nursing and doing great!!! Invaluable for sure....and inexpensive to boot!! Must have!!!
"Every Farmer should have this!"
If you don't have one or two of these in your vet box...Why Not? Each lambing season I start with a new one in the Lambing Kit, because the rubber plunger tip gets funky after a while. I totally agree with the other positive reviews on this one simple item that is inexpensive and is a life line for weak animals. Get this product! Better yet, Buy two!
"Gotta Have It!"
If I could only have one item at kidding time, this would be it. So easy to use and can save a kid. If we have any question at all it the kid is getting enough colostrum, we will use this to give them a couple of ounces.
"Wont ever be without one"
Saved many a kid with this simple and yet effective tool. I used it with my nigerian dwarf kids so its even small enough for them. When done its easy to boil and then bag up for future use.
"A MUST HAVE!!!"
It's a MUST to have a couple of these on hand, they truly are life savers for weak newborns or young/small animals that become ill and/or go off feed or need meds that they will not take on their own. We use mostly for our goat kids,but have used them on sm.dogs/or puppies,piglets, etc. And have used them as a catheter, such as for flushing a goats uterus after a difficult kidding or infection.
I won't kid without these! If you have a weak or chilled kid nothing gets them up and going like a full belly. easy to use and a safe way to get warm fluids into babies.
