Comparing Milk Replacers

It’s no secret: mother cats and dogs produce the perfect balance of nutrition to nourish the next generation of kittens and puppies. But sometimes the mother’s milk isn’t available and must be substituted with a milk replacer. That’s why PetAg has carefully crafted milk replacement products designed to closely match the nutrients found in mothers’ milk.

While you’ll find a long list of nutritious ingredients on most milk replacers, these are the ones to pay attention to. We’ve compared our products against our top competitors to illustrate our commitment to providing complete, balanced, next-generation nutrition to puppies and kittens.

Vitamin B12: Necessary for nerve function, metabolizing proteins and carbohydrates, normal growth, and cell development.

Folic Acid: Helps kittens and puppies break down complex carbohydrates into simple sugars to be used for energy. Increases the amount of oxygen and nutrients availale to be absorbed into the tissues. Important in the formation and maintenance of red and white blood cells.

Taurine: Positively treats congestive heart failure, cataracts, and gallbladder conditions. Normally found in nerve and muscle tissue. Sufficient daily intake is necessary.

Biotin: Plays a role in fatty acid and amino acid metabolism. Treats diabetes and brittle nails. Deficiency in dogs and cats can lead to dry skin and alopecia.

Vitamin E: Essential for normal reproduction and muscle development. Acts as an antioxidant and protects cell membranes against harmful polyunsaturated fatty acids.

*It should be noted that the colostrum used in milk replacement products is bovine colostrum and therefore does not nutritionally match the colostrum of a mother cat or dog. Newborn puppies and kittens are only able to absorb colostrum within the first 12 - 18 hours of life. Having colostrum in a milk replacer provides no significant nutritional benefit.
