Silicone Mothering Nipples
- Ships within 24 hours
Makes nursing more natural for small orphaned mammals such as squirrels, possums, rabbits, and raccoons. Each nipple has a pre-made hole and slips onto the feeding syringe. Durable and reusable; wash with soap and hot water after each use. We recommend at least 3 nipples for each nursing baby.
Fits all of our syringes.
Have used this product for years to feed ill cats. Work great.
In the past I have used the little puppy bottles to feed orphaned squirrels, but these nipples, used with a syringe makes it much easier. A very good quality product.
Seriously the best. While similar nipples are sold elsewhere they are extremely pale by comparison. There's issues with getting a correct hole size or any hole at all into them, as well as always popping off the syringe because they're mostly made for bottle-feeding. Which should never be done with any animal requiring a nipple of this size. They hold up well to the different species biting and chewing on them, as well as being stored until the next season. Wonderful quality
Very easy to feed baby squirrels with this. The fact that there is a hole in the teat already really helps. They last very well too, even with repeated sterilizing.
Great product that can be used over and over again.
work great for our squirrels
These are my favorite nipples for feeding baby squirrels.
Be warned: these nipples appear to be very long and a baby squirrel will swallow the entire thing. So don't panic. LOL
Best used with luer-lock syringes.
Works well, but my baby practically swallows the whole thing and it often falls off. Maybe I'm doing something wrong?
Henry's Response: Squirrels do like to take the nipple very deep; that's why the Miracle Nipple Regular Size has such a long shank. The nipples should fit snugly on all our syringes; however, they will fit most snugly on the luer-lock style syringes.
These are great for rehabbing cottontails. Last longer than I expected.
