To make 30mL of milk: Mix 1 level scoop (6.5g) of powder with 25ml of warm water.
To make 1 litre of milk: Mix 215g of powder with 850ml of warm water.
Add about half the water to the powder first and mix to a paste. Then add the remaining water and mix thoroughly. Pre-boil the water to ensure it is sterilised. If the water is too hot it can cause the milk to curdle. If it is too cold then it will be difficult to disperse the powder. An electric whisk can be used for mixing larger quantities. Milk can be stored in the fridge for up to a day or can be frozen for up to 2 weeks. It is useful to make milk up in larger volumes, and store it frozen in small portions (e.g. ice cube trays), so that the required daily feed volumes can be easily thawed out. Once thawed out, discard any unused milk, and wash feeding utensils thoroughly.
Warm milk to about 35°C. Feed from a bottle with teat, an SD Teat or LD Teat is recommended for small and large breeds respectively. For some breeds an F Teat Teat may be used. In emergency cases tube feeding may be required. Feed every 2 hours for the first 3 days, reducing this to every 4 hours by week one and every 6 hours by week two. Stimulate puppies to defecate and urinate after each feed. Encourage puppies to lap once their eyes are open and voluntary bowel motions begin. To avoid dehydration during periods of hot weather give drinks of pre-boiled water between feeds. Always provide access to drinking water once puppies eyes are open and they become active. Consult your veterinarian or breeder for particular advice about caring for your breed of puppy.
