Directions for Feeding: All puppies should receive their mother’s milk for at least 2 days, if possible. The colostrum milk gives extra nutrition and temporary immunity against some diseases. Warm Esbilac® to room or body temperature. Feed puppies 2 tablespoons (30mL) per 4 oz. (115g) of body weight daily. Divide the daily feeding amount into equal portions for each feeding. Puppies’ needs will vary and this amount may have to be increased or decreased, depending on the individual. Small and/or weak puppies should be fed every 3 to 4 hours. Larger and/or older puppies can do well being fed every 8 hours. Weigh the puppies daily to assure adequate feeding. Consult your veterinarian for additional advice. When puppies are old enough to lap, begin offering Esbilac in a shallow container.
Pregnant and lactating dogs: Feed 2 tablespoons (30mL) Esbilac per 5 lbs. (2.2kg) body weight daily.
Growing puppies (post weaning), show dogs and/or convalescing dogs: Feed 1 tablespoon (15mL) Esbilac per 5 lbs. (2.2kg) body weight daily.
