Beaphar Lactol Milk Replacer for Puppies has a superior amino acid content and is enriched with essential vitamins and minerals, providing a perfectly balanced complete feed. This complete milk replacement is made from easily digested whey products; it resembles natural bitch's milk. Ultra-filtration concentrates the proteins, and a slow drying process during production preserves the protein molecules, making them more nutritionally valuable. It contains DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid), which has been shown to help cognitive development and visual acuity.

Using the scoop provided, add Puppy Milk to warm water (allow boiled water to cool) and stir until completely dissolved. Allow to cool until lukewarm (38°C or blood temperature).
The use of proper feeding equipment is highly recommended, such as the Beaphar Feeding Set or Beaphar Feeding Syringes. These should always be clean and sterile. Lactol puppy can also be mixed with cold water for older dogs.
Prepared milk can be refrigerated for 24 hours but should be reheated to 38°C or blood temperature for young animals.
COMPLETE DIET: For un-weaned puppies. It is important to weigh young puppies on a daily basis so that you can compare their daily growth increase with the growth tables from your breeder or vet.
Recommended dilution: Add 30g (7 level scoops) to 100ml warm water. 1 litre of prepared lactol Puppy Milk contains approximately 1250 kcal.
The recommended volume per day MUST be split across the recommended number of feeds per day.
* After the 28th day, slowly change to a more solid diet, i.e. puppy food. Beaphar Lactol can be used to assist weaning. Mix prepared lactol with a small amount of puppy food, gradually decreasing the volume of milk and increasing the amount of solid food each day.
Complimentary feeding (in addition to their normal food): For puppies below 8 weeks, Beaphar Lactol can be given as a complimentary feed, in addition to their mother's milk. Recommended volume = up to 40ml per kg.
Weaned puppies over 8 weeks, adult dogs during pregnancy or lactation, sick or convalescent: Recommended volume to feed = 11ml per kg.
