Mixing Directions for PetLac
Mix one tablespoon powder with two tablespoons warm water to make approximately 2 1/3 tablespoons (7 teaspoons/35 ml) of liquid. This amount will feed a 4 oz (115 g) puppy for approximately 1 day.
If possible, all puppies should receive colostrum by nursing on their mother for the first several days. Weighing puppies at the beginning and every 3 days will help to determine the amount that should be fed. Bottle fed puppies should be fed 1 teaspoon (5 ml) per 4 ounces (115 g) of body weight every 3-4 hours. Feeding amounts and frequency vary according individual needs. Smaller and weaker puppies may need increased feeding frequency. As puppies become older, the feeding frequency may be decreased and the amount per feeding increased. At 4 to 6 weeks, you may begin offering reconstituted PetLac Puppy in a shallow bowl for the puppies to lap. Do not discontinue bottle feeding until the puppies are eating well on their own. Weaned Puppies: Feed 1 teaspoon (2 g) of PetLac Puppy powder per 5 lbs (2.2 kg) of body weight daily mixed in regular food. Pregnant and Lactating Females: Feed 2 teaspoons (4 g) of PetLac Puppy powder per 5 lbs (2.2 kg) of body weight daily mixed in regular food. Consult your veterinarian for additional advice.
NOTE: Follow recommended feeding amounts in directions shown above to avoid digestive upset caused by overfeeding.
Reconstituted liquid must be refrigerated and stored no more than 24 hours. Opened powder must be refrigerated for up to 3 months or frozen for up to 6 months to preserve freshness.
