DIRECTIONS FOR MIXING:
Gently shake or stir one part powdered Esbilac into two parts warm water. A part is any measuring device you use: teaspoon, tablespoon, or cup. Do not use a blender.
DIRECTIONS FOR FEEDING:
All puppies should receive their mothers milk for at least 2 days, if possible. This colostrum milk gives extra nutrition and temporary immunity against some diseases. Warm reconstituted Esbilac to room or body temperature. Feed puppies 2 tablespoons of liquid (30 mL) per 4 oz. (115 g) of body weight. The daily feeding rate should be divided 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 or weak puppies may need to be fed reconstituted Esbilac every 3 to 4 hours, while larger and/or older puppies do well when fed reconstituted Esbilac every 8 hours. Weigh the puppies daily to assure adequate feeding.
The PetAg 2 oz. (60mL) or 4 oz. (120mL) Small Animal Nurser is suited for feeding most puppies. When puppies are old enough to lap, begin offering reconstituted Esbilac in a saucer. During the 6th week mix reconstituted Esbilac with Esbilac 2nd Step Puppy Weaning Food. Use of the Esbilac and 2nd Step will allow the puppy to be gradually switched to solid food.
Pregnant & Lactating Bitches: Mix Esbilac powder into the daily ration at the rate of 2 teaspoons per 5 lbs. (2.2 kg) of body weight until 2 weeks after whelping.
Growing puppies already on solid food, show dogs and/or convalescing dogs: Feed 1 teaspoon (2g) Esbilac powder per 5 lbs. (2.2kg) body weight daily by top dressing food.
Consult your veterinarian for additional advice.
Unopened powder should be stored in a cool, dry place. Reconstituted Esbilac must be kept refrigerated for up to 24 hours. Opened powder can be refrigerated for up to 3 months, or can be frozen for up to 6 months to preserve freshness.
