How to Use
Cutting the Pritchard Teat—Teats are supplied with no hole in the end and must be cut before use. Two different techniques can be used to cut the teat:
- The most common technique is to use sharp scissors and snip the tip off cross-ways. The more you snip, the bigger the hole, so don't overdo it.
- An alternate method is to not cut off the tip, but instead carefully slit the end into two halves with a razor. The two halves snap back together when not in use and self seal the end of the teat. Most importantly, this self-sealing method of cutting the teat allows you to place the teat in a partially inverted position, from which the lambs can suck at will.
- Be sure not to lose the tiny metal ball that rattles when you shake the teat. The teat will leak without this ball. This rarely happens and primarily only from washing the teats too aggressively.
- Do not use Clorox® to disinfect teats. The strong chemical reacts with the latex and can cause rapid disintegration of the teat. Be aware of imitation Pritchard Teats currently on the market. They can be identified by their stiffer, molded rubber material. Pritchard Teats are made with soft pliable latex. We have found in experimenting with imitation teats that they are difficult to use with weak lambs, goat kids or tiny lambs from triplets or quads.
- Do not leave teats sitting in the sunlight. Especially do not leave them sitting on a window ledge inside a building. This "greenhouse" situation has been known to heat the red latex until it melts into a gooey blob. As all areas of high heat are bad for this type of latex, it's best not to leave them close to an "active" wood stove or furnace.
- Do not clean the teats in boiling water. Use only warm water with a small amount of dishwashing detergent.

I help raise bummer Lambs in the Spring. My hands are getting arthritic so it is hard to hold the bottles for hungry babies. Decided after all these years to buy official Lamb bottles and the holders for hooking on the fence. No more pop-bottles for us! Looks like this is going to be very helpful next Lambing season.

Great for the occasional orphaned/rejected goat kids. Easy to fill and wash. With measurements on the bottle, it makes it easier to keep track of who is getting what!

We raise hair sheep and love the bottles because of the markings, We have used the nipples in the past. Best nipples ever, Pritchard has two different nipple compounds bright red and a dark red, Dark red is the best.

Perfect bottles for our Harlequin and Southdown Babydoll lambs. I appreciate the fact that you can see how much formula is being taken and if the bottle needs cleaned again.
