Veta-Lac Canine

This treatment applies to the following species:
Company: Lloyd

Powdered milk replacer for puppies and food supplement for dogs

Directions for Mixing Veta-Lac Canine:

Add three level measures of Veta-Lac Canine powder to 8 fluid ounces (1/2 pint or 1 cup) of very warm water and shake or stir vigorously. This mixture may be stored in a covered container under refrigeration for several days. Emulsification of fats is improved by refrigeration and only brief mixing is needed just before feeding. If a smaller amount of reconstituted liquid is required, mix one measure of medium to firmly packed Veta-Lac Canine powder with three measures of very warm water as described above.

This product is intended for intermittent or supplemental feeding only.

Feeding Orphan Puppies:

Your veterinarian should be consulted for advice about the care and feeding of puppies. Feed young puppies whenever they are hungry but avoid overfeeding. Feed from a dropper or small nipple bottle. Experience will soon tell you how much and how often to feed. Veta-Lac Canine may be fed either at body temperature or refrigerator temperature, but avoid sudden changes or wide variations in temperature.

Strong newborn puppies should normally be fed six times during each 24 hours (weak or very small animals should be fed every two hours) for the first few days. The number of feedings may be reduced to four times every 24 hours during the second week.

By the third or fourth week, feeding three times per day is usually sufficient. Puppies should be eating from a bowl and a small amount of dry meal can be added to the liquid to make a gruel-like mixture.

Gradually decrease the amount of liquid being fed and increase the amount of regular ration. This change from all liquid feeding to the regular ration should be made in not less than two to three weeks. For best results, continue to feed small or supplemental amounts of reconstituted liquid after weaning.
