It is important that puppies receive colostrum within the first 12 hours of birth

Ideally the puppies should receive colostrum from a bitch, but if this is not possible Jumpstart™ Full Cream Colostrum should be fed.

Feeding recommendations
  • Mix 200 grams of lamb milk replacer (LMR) per litre of water.
  • Ensure the water has been pre boiled and bought down to a suitable feeding temperature of 38°C before adding the lamb milk replacer (LMR) powder.
  • Always follow the feeding instructions, do not increase volumes or concentrations above recommended levels.
  • Clean fresh water should be available at all times.

Note:

  • Puppies need to be fed by a bottle and teat until their eyes are open.
  • Puppies can then lap milk.
  • When lapping begins drinking water must be readily available to the puppies.

 

Important note:

  • Puppies must be stimulated to defecate and urinate after each feed.
  • Consult your veterinarian or breeder for particular advice about caring for your breed of puppy.
Feeding recommendations for adult dogs
  • 100 grams of lamb milk replacer (LMR) mixed into dry feed is an excellent supplement to the daily requirement of working dogs and nursing bitches.
  • Clean fresh water should be available at all times.
