As a child growing up I watched my Mom take care of many animals that were in need like baby birds that fell from the nest or kittens that a Momma cat gave birth to in our backyard. You name it, she would help take care of it and I learned from her. I have saved many an animal, and hope that I have passed that kindness along to my boys.
2 years ago our soon-to-be newest family member came to us, as tiny as can be, hungry scared, and full of fleas. My husband found him between our fence and the neighbors, he was so teeny tiny. I really didn’t know how old he was and was preparing to nurse him back to health with a milk replacement but before we did that we tried him on a little wet food, which he immediately ate so we were in the clear.
I did ask a friend of mine who had just gone through the exact same scenario, although she had found three newborn kittens and definitely has to use a milk replacement. She then told me that she had used a goat milk replacer to help nurse the kittens. I had never heard of this before so I did some research and found Tailspring, the leading brand in goat milk replacement products.
Why Goat milk?
Tailspring Goat milk has the following benefits:
Easy to Digest – Goat milk has smaller fat globules and forms smaller, softer curds in the stomach than cow milk. Especially for very young animals, this allows the digestive system to break down compounds quicker and absorb nutrients and energy faster, making it easy to digest.
Hypoallergenic – Casein is a natural protein found in all mammal milk. Adult cats and dogs can have difficulty with the Alpha S1 casein found in cow milk and develop an allergy, just like people. Studies have shown that goat milk is very low in Alpha S1 casein and primarily contains Alpha S2 casein, giving it a hypoallergenic value.
Tastes Good – Cats and dogs love the taste so it can even be used as a meal enhancer.
Real Dairy – Although Tailspring is formulated with additional nutrients that are necessary for puppies and kittens, goat milk naturally contains 18% more calcium, 43% more potassium, 40% more magnesium, and 104% more Vitamin A than whole cow’s milk.
Human Grade A – Tailspring goat milk is Grade A certified, which is actually a human-grade requirement. Tailspring comes from Meyenberg, America’s favorite and beloved goat milk brand and we use the same Grade A milk for all of our products, whether they are for pets or people.
Tailspring is currently the only pet nutrition brand that formulates exclusively with goat milk and every single ingredient is Human Grade and comes from the highest-quality sources. The milk replacers closely match mother’s milk and have been scientifically developed by a professional neonatal pet nutritionist with more than 30 years of experience. The formula includes all the essential nutrients, amino acids, fats, and vitamins that puppies and kittens need to thrive.
Tailspring milk replacers have the shortest and cleanest ingredient list on the market and are formulated close to nature with everything your pet needs to thrive. There are no preservatives, no artificial colors or flavors, so you know you are giving your pet the cleanest product. I know I will keep them in mind when I find my next kitten or puppy in need, cause it’s gonna happen, it’s just a matter of when.
