Wombaroo Rabbit Milk Replacer is a nutritionally-balanced milk substitute for all rabbit breeds. The formula is perfect for feeding orphaned kits, large litters, or as a supplement when the mother’s milk is limited. Specially formulated to match the composition of rabbit milk, Wombaroo contains additional protein and fat to support growing kits and “milk oil” - antimicrobial fatty acids that are essential for good gut health.

Wombaroo’s team of experts have worked since 1984 to develop scientifically-backed premium milk replacers and food for exotic animals. Wombaroo has developed several products specifically for zoos and captive breeding programs to support wildlife conservation projects around the world.
Mixing and Storage Guidelines
To make 40mL of milk: Mix 2 level scoops of powder (14g) with 25mL of warm water.
To make 500mL of milk: Mix 180g of powder with 330mL of warm water.
First, add half the water to the powder and mix into a paste. Then add the remaining water and mix thoroughly. Pre-boil the water to ensure it is sterilized. If the water is too hot it can cause the milk to curdle. If it is too cold then it will be difficult to disperse the powder. An electric whisk can be used for mixing larger quantities.
Milk can be stored in the fridge for up to one day or can be frozen for up to 2 weeks. It is useful to make-up larger quantities and store it frozen in small portions (e.g. ice cube trays), so that the required daily feed volumes can be easily thawed out. Once thawed out, discard any unused milk, and wash feeding utensils thoroughly.
Warm milk to about 95°F. Rabbit milk is very high in energy and kits need only be fed twice a day (morning & evening). Stimulate young kits to defecate and urinate after each feed. Kits may be encouraged to lap once their eyes are open.
To avoid dehydration during periods of hot weather give drinks of pre-boiled water between feeds. Always offer kits drinking water once their eyes are open and they become active. Consult your veterinarian or breeder for particular advice about caring for young rabbits
