This tube feeding kit is designed to supplement feed puppies, kittens, or other small animals who are not able to nurse from the mother or a puppy bottle or kitten bottle. The graduated markings on the tube make it easy to see how much has been ingested.
ATTENTION: THE GRADUATED MARKINGS ON THE SYRINGES WILL RUB OFF DUE TO THE TYPE OF INK USED. WE RECOMMEND USING ULTRA-CLEAR TAPE OVER THE GRADUATED MARKINGS PRIOR TO USE TO HELP PREVENT THIS FROM HAPPENING.
