    Guys i need help. I decide that i will bottle feed a few of the puppies once a day, so they can gain more weight and catch up with the others. the thing is we don't have a vet in town, so i just want to get a baby bottle and pedigree milk for puppies, but it say for it's for puppies from a month older. they are 3 weeks old today, so really should hurt them. this is one of the only milk things for puppy's and we don't have any goat milk in the shops to. So i just need to know will this be ok for the pups???

    Here are some pics of the Milk.

    Okay so today the puppies got a little pen. It has half of it with shade and it has all grass. Sally loves it and so do the little ones. They will from now on get checked on at 5:30am, then later get put in their little pen around 7:30. Then spend the rest of the day in there pen or until they have had enough of it.

    They also got wormed today; in fact all the dogs did. they were really good to do. they are now eating pedigree tin food for puppies and powered milk with weetbix in the morning and the big dogs food, but wet and tin food food at night. They also get puppy mince, but we are nearly out of that and depending on how many times i go out to see them, they get other feeds of the above foods. they also love their water, so they have a little dish to drink from.

    You shouldn't feed them weetbix. It will make them feel full but offer no nutrition. Pups fed weetbix are at high risk for deficiencies, especially calcium which can lead to serious bone problems in later life. Especially in big dogs. Wet tinned food as well contains high water levels which will also make them feel full but not actually put much into their bodies - far less economical and useless if you're hoping to get smaller pups to catch up.

    They should be having raw meat, preferably ground with bone included, like rough minced chicken carcasses etc, and puppy kibble. Coprice is a good cheaper brand, that you can get at any produce store or rural supplies place. Or Bonnie puppy.

    If you want a good milk powder to help get weight on them and or mum, or to mix with meat or kibble - try to find Palastart Lamb and Kid milk replacer. Awesome for pups and nursing bitches, and it retails for about $50 for 10kg of powder, so costs much less than the little cartons of puppy milk.

    It has molasses in it as well as extra minerals, and pups will readily drink it from a bowl - you won't need to bottle feed them at this age.

    Thank you every much Nattylou. I will stop feeding them the weetbix, but i think i will keep the wet food, as i mix in in with the dog biscuits i wet. we have been feeding them raw meat fat and the mince has lots of fat, which i hear is good as it makes them fat and gives them energy
