Puppy Formula
Puppy Supplement   -   Hand Raise Puppies

Formula For Orphaned pups or for Moms that cannot produce the milk needed. A large little.
A Mother that has had surgery or has Mastitis.  There are various reasons for supplemental feedings.
The recipe does not change.   If you need help, simply, call me.
Our AKC Saint Bernard puppies have been born into a loving home. Our Saint Bernard pups are our babies.  We take loving care of them and sometimes we have large litters and we need to help Mom.  Also we have experienced a Mother that needs help feeding her babies because of having surgery.  We take over to take the load off of her.   For many, it is not so easy.  Sometime, puppy milk supplement is because it is a case of needing to help Orphan puppies.   There are so many reasons. I will list the recipe but there are a few words of caution that you may not know. 

This puppy supplement can be used when tube feeding or in a bottle.
* Check nipple on the bottle and make sure that it is not flowing (flowing milk will provide puppy with too much and then puppy will likely aspirate and then is at risk for pneumonia.)  The milk should drip only. (A drip should provide the ease of milk consumption.  Your aim is to not have the pup to work too hard.)  

*  Puppies can will aspirate the formula and then you might complicate matters with puppies getting pneumonia. Puppies die from this.  I prefer tube feeding to begin until pups get a little older.    
* Warmth:  Puppies must be warm when they eat or their gut shuts down.  The cannot eat when they are cold and they will not digest puppy supplement. 
* Puppies temps should be optimally 98 .  A rectal thermometer will tell you what you need to know.  Warm the puppy formula up to the temp of the puppy.   Test of your wrist just as with a human baby.

I prefer a regular size baby bottle.  I will submerge into warm water and slowly rewarm puppy supplement. (I use the stove, fill my bottle and submerge in a pot.  I test the temperature frequently.)

*Do not serve to pups right after you have blended the mixture.   Let the bubbles settle.  If one feels that they can mix adequately then use a whisk.  Personally, I like a mixer and then waiting.   One should never feed pups bubbles.  This is a good rule for bottle feeding or tube feeding.

*Burp the puppies  just as you would a human baby.
Feel the pups tummy while they drink the formula and feel the puppies tummies.  The tummies will get full but you want to be sure they do not get hard and distended.  They should be soft to push.  It is best not to overfeed.   

You will get better as you go.  Do not be scared, you will be a pro in no time!!!

Puppy Supplement Recipe

2 cans Evaporated Milk or Goats Milk     (12 ounce)  Do not get fat free.  Vitamin D is fine.

6 ounces of Baby Water, Pure Water or Boiled Water  (Babies need water)

 1 Teaspoon of Dark Karo Syrup

 2 Egg Yolks

 1 Teaspoon of Mayonnaise  (Not Fat Free and Not Skim)

The pups are going to love it.

(General rule to follow is 1CC or 1ML per ounce  of body weigh every 2 hours. )
(Mixture will last in refrigerator for 5 days)

This puppy supplement can be used when tube feeding or in a bottle.

You may also buy the ready made supplement until things settle down
and you have time to make your own.  It is great to always have this on hand.


If you find that you have a baby too weak to eat the rub Karo syrup on gums and

this will usually provide energy to eat.  If not then you will then need to tube feed your puppy. 

A puppy must be warm to be fed and stay they must be hydrated or they will die.

The best place that I find is WalMart as everything is always available.
I buy Evaporated Milk by the case for Moms and pups :)  Its always a good thing.

Evaporated Milk is great for Mom.   Sometimes they do not want to drink.  Evaporated Milk mixed with water always does the trick.    It also help hydrate her of course and that produces milk when she is not hydrated enough to do so.  Moms get fixated on their pups and don't want to eat or drink.

Evaporated Milk can help with so much.  I ask all my puppy parents to give to pups after flying to flush

their systems since they have been on a plane without drinking.   Its simply a smart choice.
 Watch for the puppies getting dehydrated.  (You pull up the skin on the back of the neck and it needs to fall back down, quickly.  If it is stiff and stays up you need hydration in the baby) You may find that you will need to administer injection of Lactated Ringers to hydrate.   Your Vet will be able to provide a necessary instruments and instructions if needed.

We love our babies and know that you do too

God Bless all of our puppies.
