Direction For Use
Wombaroo Impact Colostrum Supplement For Dogs Cats Livestock Small Animals 100gm
Designed for newborn mammals as a colostrum replacement or for marsupial joeys as an adjunct to milk replacer formulas
A food supplement from bovine colostrum powder, with added lactoferrin, Lactoperoxidase, whey protein, omega 3 & 6 fatty acids, vitamins and minerals.
Bovine colostrum provides immunity against a wide range of pathogens that are present in the environment (eg rotavirus, which can cause acute diarrhoea). As these pathogens are common to most animal species, bovine colostrum has been successfully used to improve the immune response in a diverse range of newborn mammals
Colostrum is the first milk produced after birth. It is high in protein, much of which is immunoglobulin. Immunoglobulins provide immunity against pathogenic micro-organisms such as bacteria and viruses.
Most animals are born without immunity and initially acquire their immunoglobins from colostrum.
Newborns that don’t receive colostrum have a weakened immune system and increased risk of infection and mortality
Feed Impact to newborn animals within the first 48 hours
Feed to marsupial joeys as an adjunct to milk until weaned
Should be fed Impact as soon as possible after birth, and preferably before milk is fed
May be absorbed for several days after birth, depending on the species, but is most effective in the first 12 hours
Newborns that have not received maternal colostrum should receive at least 2 doses within 48 hours of birth
First 12 hours after birth - prepare a dose as described above and feed ¼ of the amount every 2 hours - do not feed milk during this time
12 to 48 hours after birth - commence feeding milk - prepare a dose as described above and feed ¼ of the amount every 4 hours, in between milk feeds - do not mix or feed Impact with milk
Directions for Marsupials (Including kangaroos, possums, wombats, koalas, bandicoots, carnivorous marsupials and monotremes (echidna and platypus)
Ideally should be fed to pouch-bound marsupials within a week of first coming into care, as immunity from the mother’s milk can deplete significantly after 7 days and may be completely gone by 4-6 weeks
May be fed as either a concentrated 5-day course or a less-concentrated maintenance dose
Concentrated 5 Day Course For Marsupials
Select the amount of Impact powder for body weight from the chart
Mix the powder directly into the daily volume of milk and feed as usual
If too thick, dilute with a small amount of extra water
This procedure may be repeated for up to 5 days, every 4 to 6 weeks, as necessary
Use when animals initially come into care, for sick or stressed animals, or just prior to first pouch emergence
Maintenance Dose For Marsupials
Add 1g of Impact powder (1 moderately heaped spoon) per 100mL of milk fed, repeated daily, as required
Use as a preventative measure to provide a constant low-dose of immunoglobulins during care
