I am giving her puppy milk on the advice of the person I bought her from.
I assumed I was doing the right thing.
If I am not, please help educate me about balanced diets for puppies.
That WOULD be helpful and that would be appreciated!
Have a browse through here Amy, Dog Food & Feeding - Australian Purebreed & Crossbreed Dog Forum
I would highly recommend reading through all of this thread as it will help to explain a lot to you http://www.dogforum.com.au/dog-food-...w-balance.html
I posted earlier that I give very young puppies Biolac but by 8 weeks they are on water only.
I've raised quite a few litters and have never liked the milk products you buy in the supermarket even if the do say safe for dogs.
Maybe I wasn't direct enough but I try not to ram my opinions down people throats so use the "I do this with my dogs" "or I have found this works".
Most of my friends are breeders and we are all the same. Nothing substitutes like mothers milk but the next best thing is either Biolac or a home made receipe I use but won't go into here because your puppy should be over 8 weeks and therefore there is no substitute for water.
some times worm tablets and flea treatments can upset tummies as well. Every time i used to worm Pepsi (as an adult dog) she would get an upset tummy, i discussed it with my vet and we changed brand and she is fine.
If the tummy upset keeps up take her to see the vet, but only if she gets dehydrated and the runs persists.
Pepsi loves to eat grass and trims our bamboo regularly, so i wouldn't worry too much about it, some dogs are like that!
Pepsi also loves milk and we give her small amounts of cows milk as a treat, just be careful, puppies can have delicate tummies, so maybe save the treats for when she is a bit older.
Turn's out I'm feeding her the same stuff as Angela is feeding Batty so I am happy with it for the time being!
Thanks anyway for your response.
Have you changed her food from what she used to have?
