Recipe for milk replacer for puppies:



1.     1 (one) cup whole (full cream) milk

2.     1 (one) teaspoon of corn (or other vegetable) oil

3.     1 (one) egg yolk (NO white)


Mix and warm to body temperature (do not boil!!). Mix fresh, discard after 24 hours if not used.


Do not water down cows milk, as bitch's milk is richer than cows milk (which is hwy the oil and egg yolk have to be added).
