Wombaroo Possum Milk Replacer <0.8 (Less Than)


This is a milk substitute for possum & glider joeys with less than 80% of their pouch life completed.

At this stage, Joeys have furless pink skin to fine fur, eyes are closed to just opened and the ears are drooped, or starting to become erect. They are fully pouch-bound and totally dependent on milk. Yellow custard faeces to toothpaste consistency.

Use Possum Milk Replacer <0.8 for joeys that are pinkie and just-furring, prior to pouch emergence. Furless possums and gliders are very prone to disease and mortality which should only be attempted by experienced carers with sufficient resources.

Making up Milk

  • Mix 16g of powder (2½ scoops) with 90ml of warm water to make 100mL of milk.
  • Mix 160g of powder with 900ml of warm water to make 1 litre of milk.

First, add about half the water to the powder and mix to a paste. Make up with remaining water and mix thoroughly. Use preboiled water to ensure that it is sterilised. Too hot water can cause the milk to curdle. Too cold and it will be difficult to disperse the powder. The milk needs to be well mixed to prevent it from separating out because Wombaroo contains elevated fat levels. Using an electric whisk can be helpful for mixing larger quantities. The milk can be stored in the fridge for a day, and it can also be frozen for up to 2 weeks. Storing frozen milk in small portions may be useful (e.g. ice cube trays), to easily thaw out the required daily feed volumes. Must re-mix well after thawing. Discard any unused milk once thawed out, and make sure to wash feeding utensils thoroughly.
