A milk replacer formula is useful for bottle or tube feeding orphaned puppies. This recipe makes a thicker milk replacer. If using a bottle to feed, consider widening the nipple hole to make it easier for the puppy to eat. Made fresh and stored in the refrigerator, it can last up to seven days.
Blend until smooth. Avoid blending a lot of air into the formula, as this can become trapped in the puppy's stomach. Consider allowing the formula to sit for a few minutes to settle air bubbles out.
Pour formula into a nipple bottle with a wider hole, to allow the thickened formula to drip through it.
The formula should be at least body temperature, before feeding to a puppy. Discard any uneaten formula from the bottle. Store extra formula from blender in the refrigerator.
