Di-Vetelact Original is manufactured in a food grade SQF certified facility under quality management systems. We use only premium quality Australian and New Zealand dairy ingredients. So you can be assured it is safe and high quality.
Our formulation was developed by Mike Sharpe, a world leader in advanced medical nutrition.
Mike oversaw the development of successful pharmaceutical nutrition products such as Danone Aptamil Gold and De-Lact Infant Formulas.
He applied the same superior standards to development and implementation of Di-Vetelact that we continue today.
Di-Vetelact Original is our flagship product and has been sold consistently in Australia for over 45 years. We have added the name Original as we may expand our product range and this way, our customers will always know the original. Like all great products on the market this product has undergone some improvements over the years responding to availability of ingredients, research and studies in animal milk composition and variability.
All our ingredients are sourced from Australian suppliers under strict product certification in accordance with Australian Agriculture Bio Security laws. Our premium dairy ingredients are all sourced from Australian and New Zealand dairy farms.
Di-Vetelact is easy to mix and has a smooth consistency that tastes great. This is the result of our excellent formulation, manufacturing and premium human grade ingredients. Animals love the flavour so will take to it well. The 1 product makes it easy for the carer to provide consistent and ongoing nutrition.
How to Use
Di-Vetelact Original has always recommended a dilution of 60mL per 1 scoop of powder suitable for all mammals and marsupials from infancy.
Our goal at Di-Vetelact is to produce premium quality products that are simple to use, so we currently have 1 dilution recommended on the label of ease of use.
You may have seen Dilution B (1 scoop per 40mL) as an additional option. This can be used for puppies, kittens, fawns, rabbits, mice as they grow and require more high energy.
On our Marsupial feeding guide, we do specify 4 graduating dilutions for Marsupials at different growth phases.
Rest assured the Di-Vetelact Original formula is the same as the Di-Vetelact you have been using for the last few years so you can continue use Di-Vetelact Original as you always have been.

We have developed Di-Vetelact Original as a functional product. It's formulated to match mammal milk composition that would be produced in a tran-seasonal climate, during a luscious growth season and in a forage rich environment.
Di-Vetelact Original has the correct ratios and varieties of fatty acids, amino acids, sugars, vitamins and minerals in a masterful formulation.
Di-Vetelact Original sits within a range of crude ratios so that it can be used successfully for all mammals and marsupials through all growth stages while being cared for in a controlled feeding environment.
We make our product with human grade ingredients and manufacture in a SQF certified facility under quality management systems.
Di-Vetelact Original is a single formula to be used across all growth stages. This is beneficial to the carer and the animals as there is no required transition period associated with changing formulas, and greatly reduces the risk of nutritional and physiological stress on the animal in care.
Di-Vetelact Original is still made by the Sharpe Family as it always has been. It was developed over 45 years ago by Mike Sharpe, then of Sharpe Laboratories Pty Ltd, and then Nutritional Laboratories Pty Ltd. In December 2019 the business trading name was changed to Lillelund Pty Ltd as this is a family name that reflects the Danish ancestry of the Sharpe matriarch. The business is now managed by family members Sally Irvin and Fleur Sharpe all with a shared goal to ensure Di-Vetelact remains on the market as your favourite low lactose milk supplement for animals at every life stage.
