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!
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.
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.
