Wombaroo Kangaroo Milk Replacer Under 0.6 220gm

Wombaroo Kangaroo Milk Replacer 0.6 is a nutritionally balanced milk substitute for macropod (kangaroo & wallaby) joeys with between 60% - 70% of their pouch life completed.

Joeys at this stage have the following characteristics 

  •  Have fur that begins as fine velvet, but rapidly grows into a short, thicker coat
  • Their eyes are fully opened and ears erect
  • They are confined to the pouch, with head regularly out
  • The faeces is mustard coloured toothpaste to soft green pellet consistency

Formula Features 

  • Specifically formulated to match the composition of mid lactation kangaroo milk. 
  • High energy milk, with the required balance of carbohydrate & fat content.
  • Protein high in sulphur-containing amino acids (cysteine & methionine) for rapid hair growth phase. 

Note

  • Kangaroo milk composition changes significantly as the joey ages
  • Kangaroo Milk Replacer 0.6 is specially formulated for rapidly furring joeys during mid lactation, just prior to first pouch emergence
  • Joeys can be aged according to their physical characteristics (hair growth, body length measurements etc.) as outlined in the Wombaroo Marsupial Milk Feeding Guidelines
  • Body weight is not a good indicator of age because this can vary greatly with body condition and level of dehydration
  • Success in hand-rearing young macropod joeys greatly improves if they receive Impact Colostrum Supplement within a week of coming into care
  • This is particularly beneficial to joeys at the 0.6 stage to help boost the immune system just prior to first pouch emergence (a time of particular immune challenge). Refer to “Directions for Marsupials” under the Impact feeding guidelines.

Making up Milk

  • Preboil the water to ensure that it is sterilised. 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
  • To make 100mL of milk: Mix 22g of powder (3 scoops) with 85ml of warm water
  • To make 1 litre of milk: Mix 220g of powder with 850ml of warm water
  • Add about half the water to the powder first and mix to a paste
  • Then make up with remaining water and mix thoroughly
  • Wombaroo contains elevated protein and fat levels, so the milk needs to be well mixed to prevent it from separating out. An electric whisk can be used for mixing larger quantities
  • Milk can be stored in the fridge for a day or can be frozen for up to 2 weeks
  • It may be useful to store frozen milk in small portions (eg 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 

Feeding 

  • Warm milk to about 30°C and feed using a bottle and teat
  • A Wombaroo MTM or STM teat is recommended for in-pouch kangaroos and wallabies
  • Feed around 5 times per day for joeys with an Age Factor 0.6
  • If the joey is showing signs of dehydration (eg during hot weather), give extra drinks of water between feeds. Young joeys can dehydrate rapidly if not maintained under optimum husbandry conditions
  • Joeys at the 0.6 stage should be offered dirt to eat, which helps establish the correct gut flora for the consumption of herbage
  • Consult your veterinarian or experienced carer for further information about husbandry and feeding of joeys

Growth

  • Different species of macropods grow at different rates. Refer to the Wombaroo growth charts for guidelines for various species of kangaroos and wallabies
  • Weigh joeys regularly to verify weight gains and determine the volume of milk to feed. Overfeeding milk can cause diarrhoea so feed the suggested volumes in our tables

Transitioning from Kangaroo 0.6 to Kangaroo >0.7 formula 

  • Milk transition refers to when a joey is changed from one Wombaroo milk stage to the next
  • It is important to transition joeys at the correct age to ensure they are getting the proper nutrition for their stage of development
  • Note that transition is dependent on joey age and not weight, as underweight joeys still need to be transitioned at the correct time
  • Fur appears last on the belly/chest of growing macropods. Once joeys have a complete covering of short fur they are ready to transition on to Wombaroo Kangaroo Milk Replacer over 0.7 formula
  • Joeys are gradually transitioned over 10 days by mixing decreasing amounts of the 0.6 formula with increasing amounts of the >0.7 formula. This is outlined in the Wombaroo growth charts for various species
