Directions for Mixing: Puppies that are up on their feet and lapping
from a bowl may be introduced to Esbilac 2nd Step. Begin by offering it as a thin gruel.
Determine the amount of Esbilac 2nd Step powder to be fed to the puppy at each
feeding using the Feeding Guideline. Reconstitute powder by using 3 parts
(a part is any measuring device, i.e. teaspoon, tablespoon or cup)
liquid Esbilac or water to 1 part powder for the first few days. Offer only small
amounts and remove the uneaten portion after no more than 20 minutes.
Puppies should be fed 3 times per day. Weigh the puppies at least once a week to
monitor weight gain and adequacy of feeding. As puppies grow decrease
the amount of water mixed with powder until weaning food is an oatmeal consistency.
Consult your veterinarians for additional advice.
