Preparation, Administration & Expiration Date
WARNING: Emeraid has been scientifically designed for extremely high digestibility. Avoid contamination. Handle product carefully. Keep dry. Use a clean, dry scoop. Do not cross contaminate with scoops used with non-EmerAid foods. Contamination can cause harmful bacterial growth.
Mix one part powder to one part hot water measuring 122°F (50°C).
Stir the mixture until smooth
Use a syringe to draw up the mixture. To minimize any risk of the tube plugging, do not load the feeding or gavage tube with formula until immediately before tube feeding.
When mixed as directed, this product will pass through a 18-gauge stainless steel feeding needle and 5-French red rubber catheters.
Feed your patient immediately whenever possible, and always within 30 minutes of food preparation.
Keep the gavage tube and syringe in very warm water 103-105°F (39-41°C) until ready to feed.
In the adult animal, crop or stomach volume is estimated as 30 ml/kg (3% body weight). The first feeding is often one-third to one-half of this calculated volume, however the volume and number of feedings must be adjusted based on patient species and condition.
Feed as the sole diet for 10 days or less unless directed otherwise by your veterinarian.
For patients with poor weight gain or malabsorptive conditions, EmerAid can also be mixed with the regular diet to boost enterocyte function and enhance digestion (25%-30% EmerAid; 70%-75% regular diet).
Discard any leftover formula. Make formula fresh for each feeding.
Flush and clean feeding syringe.
