Directions for Use:
Gently shake or stir one volume of powdered ESBILAC® into two volumes of warm water. Do not use a blender.
Puppies: All puppies should receive their mother's milk for at least 2 days, if possible. The colostrum milk gives extra nutrition and temporary immunity against some diseases.
Warm reconstituted ESBILAC® to room or body temperature. Feed puppies 2 tablespoons (12 g) per 4 ounces (115 g) of body weight daily. Small and/or weak puppies should be fed every 3 to 4 hours. Larger and/or older puppies can do well being fed every 8 hours. Divide the daily feeding amount into equal portions for each feeding. The amount required should be increased or decreased to meet the individual requirements for each puppy.
Weigh the puppies daily to assure that they are receiving adequate ESBILAC®.
Consult your veterinarian for advice.
The Pet-Ag 4 oz Esbilac® Small Animal Nurser is suited for feeding most puppies. When puppies are old enough to lap, begin offering reconstituted ESBILAC® in a shallow container. During the 3rd week mix reconstituted ESBILAC® with Pet-Ag Puppy Weaning Formula. This will allow the puppy to gradually switch to solid food.
Pregnant and lactating bitches: Feed 2 teaspoons (4 g) ESBILAC® Powder per 5 lbs (2.2 kg) body weight daily until 2 weeks after whelping.
Growing puppies, show dogs, and/or convalescing dogs: Feed 1 teaspoon (2 g) ESBILAC® Powder per 5 lbs (2.2 kg) body weight daily.
