Kitten season is just around the corner, so this is the purrfect time to tell you about Tailspring, a new goat milk based milk replacer for neonatal kittens.
Tailspring milk replacers come from Meyenberg, a well-known goat milk dairy brand. They are based in Northern California and have been making goat milk products since 1934. They’ve always known that people weren’t the only ones enjoying their products, and that they’ve been used for animals ranging from rabbits and squirrels to possums and racoons and even large animals, including horses, jaguars, and elephants.
Goat milk has been shown to help baby animals thrive as well as supplement the nutrition of adult cats and dogs. It can improve overall digestion and fur quality with fewer side effects than cow’s milk.
Tailspring was created with input from an expert neonatal pet nutritionist.
The number one ingredient in Tailspring is goat milk, which is well tolerated and gentle on kittens’ digestive system. Goat milk is easier to digest than cow’s milk because it allows the digestive system to break down compounds faster than cow milk, which makes for more rapid absorption of nutrients and energy. Goat milk is considered hypo-allergenic because it is lower in casein, the protein that causes allergies in people and animals.
With only 16 additional essential ingredients to provide nutrients and vitamins, Tailspring milk replacers have the shortest and cleanest ingredient list on the market and are formulated as close to nature as possible. Their human grade ingredients contain no preservatives, artificial colors or flavors.
Tailspring kitten milk replacers are intended for kittens up to 8 weeks of age. They come in a ready-to-feed liquid and a powdered formula that needs to be mixed with water. Both formulas can be used as a meal enhancer or treat.
My take on Tailspring
I love the research that went into these products, and I especially love the clean ingredient list. Tailspring milk replacers may just be the closest thing to mother’s milk.
For more information, please visit Tailspring. The website has a wealth of information about the benefits of goat milk in general, and, bonus, super cute photos of goats, kittens and other baby animals.
