There is nothing more touching and cute than newborn puppies or kittens! Sometimes though you can‘t just admire them, you have to take action to feed these little guys. To hand-feed them with the right nursery kit.
Hand-feeding newborn puppies and kittens requires having a good nursery kit that comes with a good quality bottle, nipples and cleaning brush. I reviewed the top 3 Pet Nursery Kits under $10.
I immediately mention the affordability of these great pet nursery kits. Why? You won‘t necessarily find the most perfect nursery kit for your newborn pets right away. Every kitten and puppy is different and has a different approach to being hand-fed, to size of nipples and bottles. You might need to try different models until you find the best for your newborn pets.
Exactly for that reason it‘s so important to have opinions of people available who tried these nursery kits already. So, what are you looking for about a good pet nursery kit?
The bottle should be made of non-toxic plastic that is sturdy and at the same time thin enough in order to make it easy for you to control a perfect flow of the milk by gently squeezing the bottle. This is important for every newborn pet but even more so for kittens or puppies that refuse to suck properly.
The nipples also need to be sturdy enough to withstand repeated use, biting and pulling. As soon as your newborn pets get used to the quality of the nipples you won‘t have any problems anymore with hand-feeding them.
All following models of pet nursery kits can easily be sterilized in boiling water, a very essential feature.

This nursing bottle is perfect. So far we have used it on a few baby kittens. The flow is nice and I haven’t had any problems with the kittens drinking from it or getting too much at once. I like that it comes with extra nipple and brushes to wash it out with this makes cleaning easier. If you are looking for a good nursing bottle I would recommend this one.
This bottle is great since it comes with a couple different sized nipples. So if you need a good bottle for pups kittens or other small mammals I’d recommend it
My vet recommended that I get a nursing bottle for my new pet and this was exactly what he told me to get. There are different size nipples and it is sturdy, making it easy to use!

4 oz. Puppy took to this bottle great. The curved shape was also helpful since I’m feeding only a teaspoon at a time he was actually able to get it all without tilting his head back.
I love this bottle. Especially with the younger kittens. The nipple is not so hard and moves better with their mouths. I’ve used this on kittens as young as a day old.
I foster bottle baby kittens for a rescue and this bottle has been wonderful! The bend in the bottle allows babies to lay on their tummies while they nurse without swallowing air! The bottle itself is just slightly larger than most common pet nursers. It’s also a slightly thinner plastic so it’s much easier to control a gentle squeeze to get the flow started or for fussy babies who refuse to suck.
