Tube Feeding

Tube Feeding

Tube feeding is sometimes a necessity for some puppies for any number of reasons. We carry a range of sizes of both feeding tubes and compatible syringes. Our feeding tubes and syringes are human hospital grade, with enteral fittings, so please note that they ARE NOT luer slip compatible. 

Enteral/tube feeding equipment is typically orange in colour (or sometimes purple) to indicate that it is for feeding, and the slightly different enteral fitting is to prevent misconnections in a hospital setting (IV lines, oxygen lines etc).

Our feeding tubes are clear with markings every centimetre, and our compatible syringes have a silicone o-ring for superior smooth action and improved re-use. Never trim a feeding tube.
