Nurturall-C for Puppies Indications

Mother’s milk replacer for puppies and food supplement for adult dogs.

This product is intended for intermittent or supplemental feeding only.

Directions For Use

Directions for Preparation and Use: Weigh the puppy. Prepare enough NURTURALL®-C, with the enclosed measuring scoop, for use within a 24-hour period. Puppies should be fed at least 1/2 ounce of liquid NURTURALL®-C for every two ounces of body weight, daily. Puppies should be allowed to consume as much formula as they want. The table below gives minimum feeding amounts for a 24-hour period. For puppies 1-10 days old, mix one scoop powder into two scoops water. For puppies older than 10 days, mix two scoops powder into three scoops water. Use tap or bottled water. Stir until smooth. Pour liquid into a clean Nurturall® nurser. Heat liquid by placing bottle in a pan of tepid water. Test temperature on your wrist. It should feel slightly warm. Do not microwave. Store NURTURALL®-C powder in the refrigerator. Refrigerate any unused reconstituted liquid for up to 24 hours.

After feeding, hold the puppy’s head on your shoulder and rub his back gently until he burps. Make water available after puppies are two weeks old. Small animal water bottles are recommended.

Orphaned puppies: If possible, puppies should nurse from their mother for the first two 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, NURTURALL®-C contains nutrient rich colostrum milk powder harvested at USDA inspected facilities. It is extremely important to weigh puppies frequently (everyday) to insure they are receiving adequate amounts of supplement. If a puppy loses weight after 48 hours, consult your veterinarian. Feed weak or small puppies every four hours; feed at eight-hour intervals if the puppy is 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 puppies. 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: Puppies may be weaned when they are about 25 days old. As soon as they are able to lap up formula, mix equal parts of prepared NURTURALL®-C Milk Replacer with a weaning cereal until a soupy mixture is produced. Place mixture in a shallow bowl. As the puppy grows, gradually increase the portion of cereal while decreasing the formula.

Pregnant and lactating bitches: Mix one tablespoon of liquid NURTURALL®-C Milk Replacer per five pounds of body weight into the pregnant bitch’s daily ration. Continue until the puppies are weaned.

Supplementation: If a supplement is desired for a growing puppy, show dog, large litter, geriatric or convalescing dog, simply mix one tablespoon of the liquid per five pounds of body weight into the dog’s daily ration of food.

NURTURALL®-C Milk Replacer is also available in a ready to use liquid.

Product is filled by weight not volume.

Your veterinarian should be consulted for advice about the care and feeding of puppies.

Precaution(s): Refrigerate after opening. Discard unused powder after three months.
