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.

Very pleased with these bottles and nipples. I was worried about the nipples because they look like what I had bought from the local farm store. They are not the same and work much much better than what I have. One happy customer!

Far superior to the old style bottle. Lambs are able to down all the milk replacer with little effort. We will be swapping out all the old style bottles before our next lambing season.

Love these bottles! We would use soda bottles and put a nipple on. Filling those soda bottles were a nightmare. These make everything so much better. The WIDE mouth is great and we spill less in the filling process. I would definitely buy these again. Also the customer service is outstanding!!

Outstanding! Much better than anything I have used before.

Great bottle! It is easy to clean and easy to fill. The black gasket ring has a tendency to fall out of the lid when cleaning but is a minor inconvenience and will not keep me from ordering more. Love this product!
