DIRECTIONS FOR PREPARATION AND USE:

Weigh the puppy. Prepare enough Just Born® milk replacer, with the enclosed measuring scoop, for use within a 24 hour period. Puppies should be fed at least 1/2 ounce of prepared liquid Just Born® milk replacer for every 2 ounces of body weight, daily. Puppies should be allowed to consume as much formula as they want. The table gives minimum feeding amounts for a 24 hour period. For puppies 1-10 days old, mix 1 scoop powder into 2 scoops water. For puppies older than 10 days, mix 2 scoops powder into 3 scoops water. Use tap or bottled water. Stir until smooth. Pour liquid into an appropriate sized, clean nursing bottle or feeding syringe. Heat liquid by placing bottle or feeding syringe in a pan of tepid water. Test temperature on your wrist. It should feel slightly warm. Do not microwave. Store Just Born® milk replacer in the refrigerator. Refrigerate unused reconstituted liquid up to 24 hours. After feeding, hold the puppy’s head on your shoulder and rub his back gently until he burps.

ORPHANED PUPPIES:

If possible, puppies should nurse from their mother for the first 2 days of their lives to receive nutrient rich colostrum. Mother’s colostrum provides temporary protection from numerous diseases and contains growth factors believed to stimulate protein synthesis, improve fat utilization, and promote cell growth. While mother’s milk is always preferable, Just Born® milk replacer contains nutrient rich milk powder harvested at USDA inspected facilities. It is extremely important to weigh puppies frequently (every day) to ensure they are receiving adequate amounts of supplement. If a puppy loses weight after 48 hours, consult your veterinarian. Feed weak or small puppies every 4 hours; feed at 8 hour intervals if strong and active. Puppies’ needs will vary and the time and amount may have to be increased or decreased, depending on the breed, growth rate and activity of the puppy. Make water readily available after puppies are 2 weeks old. Orphan puppies must be kept warm for proper digestion to occur. Also, use a warm, moist washcloth and gently wipe the puppy’s bottom until it wets and has a bowel movement, several times daily, to imitate a mother’s care. This is required for young puppy survival.

WEANING PUPPIES:

Healthy puppies may be weaned when they are about 25 days old or when they can lap formula from a bowl. At this age, blend a high quality dry puppy food with equal parts of warm prepared Just Born® milk replacer as directed to make a paste. Feed the mixture 3-4 times a day for the first week. Each week, gradually increase the amount of dry food in the mixture so that after 6-7 weeks the puppy is fully on dry food.

PREGNANT AND LACTATING BITCHES:

Mix 1 tablespoon of prepared Just Born® milk replacer per 5 pounds of body weight into the pregnant bitch’s daily ration. Continue until the pups are weaned.

SUPPLEMENTATION:

If a supplement is desired for a growing puppy, show dog, large litter, geriatric or convalescing dog, simply mix 1 tablespoon of prepared Just Born® milk replacer per 5 pounds of body weight into the dog’s daily ration of food.

Just Born® milk replacer is also available in a ready-to-use liquid.
