Making Your Own Puppy Formula
How can you make your own puppy formula? Is it as good as puppy food you buy in the store?
Let's face it, there is nothing you can do to replace nature. A momma dog will naturally create a formula perfect for her newborns. But, if your little pups need a boost, there is a solution. You can make your own formula to help out.
When to use the formula?
This type of formula is used to help an already healthy pup. If the pup is chilled and not maintaining a warm body temperature, this solution will not help, and you should consult a veterinarian for assistance. If your pup just needs a little boost, make the formula. This will give them a little extra energy and stamina to built their own immune system.
How to make the formula?
First, here are the ingredients you will need to buy and mix in a blender:
10 oz. evaporated milk
3 oz. sterilized water
1 egg yolk
2 tablespoons of mayonnaise
2 cup whole fat yogurt.
Mix the ingredients and warm them to body temperature.
How to administer the formula?
If your pups are doing very well, you can simply give it to them through a bottle. The solution is very thick, so you might need to widen the nipple a bit. If your pups are moderately well, you might want to administer the formula through the stomach tube.
How often should you feed them?
Puppies need nourishment. They will eat a lot. Go ahead and feed them. But once they reach four weeks, they will need solid food, too. Be ready to wean them off the formula.
