Milk Formula For Orphaned Puppies Comes First!

Bottle Feeding Recipe for Puppies (I try this on a baby RAT and it works well too)

1. 10 oz. canned evaporated milk or whole goat's milk (not pasteurized cow's milk  - some dogs cannot drink normal cow's milk, so there is a huge risk here. when your dogs happen to be sensitive to lactose, and can not drink 1%, 2%, skim, whole milk, even worse, condensed milk). Whole goat's milk is by far the best to use

2. 3 oz. sterilized water (baby water or boiled water that is then cooled). This is not needed if using whole goat's milk.

3. 1 raw egg yolk.

4. 1 cup whole yogurt (best avoid skim or fat free).

5. 1/2 teaspoon karo syrup or corn syrup (don't use honey)

Substitute for karo syrup:
1 c karo can be subbed with 1 c white sugar and 1/4 c hot water (cook it to dissolve in the water best you can get it to. Depending on the recipe, if you need the sugar to be completely dissolved you might need to add a bit more water).

* Place ingredients in a blender and blend or use a wire whisk.
Be careful to not over blend and create a milk shake full of bubbles and then tube bubbles into the puppy.
Keep refrigerated and discard leftovers after 7 days.

* When giving milk to the puppies, warm formula to body temperature (dogs temperature are around 101 degrees F).
Discard any unused formula.
This is a thick mixture - use a stomach tube to tube feed or enlarge the hole in the nipple for easy access for the pup.

I found this awesomely great information on the web, and it is helpful if you have a bunch of pups that can't nurse.
