    Thanks everyone
    With the milk keep them on Divatelact? Or can they be changed to something else?
    If that's what's best for them I'll keep buying it but with so many pups it's very expensive

    I stopped the milk once they were eating well. Can't remember how many weeks that was but I know it was all done with by 3 months.
    I always feel it is better to keep them on what they are used to at very young ages, others may have different opinions.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    I'd stick with it for a couple more weeks.

    Working dogs growing up had litters and I remember dad feeding them powder milk and weetbix from Coles but that dosnt mean it was the right thing the pups needed that why I asked here

    The good ol days. Things were so simple. I'm sure my mum nursed many an orphaned animal with weetbix and its still used in some receipes geared towards fattening up dogs.

    I'd keep up the divetalac because they aren't being supplimented by their mothers milk. For my litters past about four weeks old I really start to water down the divetalac until their food is basically being mixed up with water but they are still drinking from mum as well.
