About This Product:

Wombaroo's High Protein Supplement was originally developed as a product for captive flying foxes. However, it is now used extensively by animal caregivers and keepers as a protein booster in the diet of many fruit and nectar eating animals.

  • The sources of protein in this supplement are soy protein isolate, whey protein isolates of high lactalbumin content, and hydrolysed casein. Together, these ingredients produce a protein mix with an excellent amino acid composition.

  • The supplement is fortified with vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids (linolenic acid, EPA and DHA).

  • Product palatability and protein quality make it a useful food additive to boost the protein level in the diet of debilitated animals.

  • Wombaroo High Protein Supplement supplies adequate levels of all essential amino acids and maintenance protein requirements for mammals in ranges from about 1.5g to 6g per kg-0.75 per day.

  • An animal's protein requirement is related to the amount of energy expended. If there is no gain in body weight, then energy intake can be substituted for energy expended.

  • An average value of 6mg of protein per kJ of energy intake can be used to estimate maintenance protein requirements.

  • With Wombaroo as the protein source, this translates into 90mg per kJ of energy or 4g per kg-0.75 per day. Of course, the amount of supplement needed will depend on the species of animal as well as the quantity and quality of protein in the existing diet.

Frugivorous Animals

  • Fruit can represent a large proportion of the diet for some animals and birds. To ensure that there is sufficient quality protein in their diet disperse 2 heaped teaspoons of Wombaroo High Protein Supplement over each 100g of fruit.

Flying Foxes

  • Disperse 2 heaped teaspoons of Wombaroo High Protein Supplement over 300g of fresh cut apple and feed this quantity to each adult animal. Increase the amount of supplement to 4 heaped teaspoons when feeding pregnant or nursing females and juveniles.

Other Uses

  • Wombaroo High Protein Supplement can be substituted for the high protein cereal used in the many food recipes for animals and birds. It is more economical as only half the quantity of Wombaroo is needed because of its superior protein quality and higher concentration.
