The use of Pastettes at The Wildlife Aid Centre.
Into The Mouths of Babes – Pastettes help British Wildlife get the best start in life.
This baby blue tit is finding that Alpha Pastettes make a good substitute for mum.
The Wildlife Aid Centre is often busy rescuing orphaned baby birds. They have discovered that the Small Volume Fine Tip Pastettes are ideal for providing water.
With small baby birds the windpipe is close to the front of the mouth. It is essential to avoid this when putting water into the mouths or they could drown.
The fine tip has sufficient reach to make sure the water is delivered to the back of the throat, and is soft enough to ensure is does not damage the delicate tissue of the baby birds mouth. The soft responsive bulb makes them easy to control delivering just the right amount of water at the right place.
These fine tip Pastettes are also used to feed and water baby bats and mice and any other small animals which may arrive at the centre.
Wildlife Aid, as seen on British TV’s ‘Wildlife SOS’, is one of the UK’s largest wildlife rescue, rehabilitation and release centres. The charity, having been founded in 1980 by Simon Cowell MBE, is now the only remaining organisation of its kind in Surrey. Dealing with in excess of 20,000 wildlife incidents each year, the centre is open to receive wildlife casualties around the clock, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
