The formulas I've used
Puppy Formula

1 can evaporated milk

1 can water

1 egg yolk

1 tsp. Karo Syrup

2-3 large spoonfuls of vanilla yogurt.

Puppy Formula 2

1 cup evaporated milk (full fat)

1 cup plain yogurt (full or low fat is ok)

l/4 cup water

1 egg yolk (no whites)

2 tablespoons mayonaise

The amount for full supplementing is 1cc per oz of puppy every 4 hours.

Keep it in a jar or bottle in the fridge and then just shake it up well before each feeding.

 

Fading puppy formula

1 - egg yolk
1 - Small jar of strained beef baby food
8 oz - Plain yogurt
12 oz - Evaporated Milk
6 oz. - water
3-4 drops - Karo syrup
3-4 drops - Flax seed oil

Put all ingredients in a blender and refrigerate after blending.

 

Liver liquid for fading puppies

Large piece of Beef Liver-little bit of water-boil slowly, about 5 minutes until the blood comes out.

Let cool-drain the liquid and put just 4 drops (no matter the breed) into a dropper and give to puppy.

At first you give it every 2 hours for 12 hours, then every 4 hours. You can do this for however long you have to until you feel the puppy is thriving.

Don't use any of the liver itself-it's way too rich--just the liquid.

Stories about using this:  Someone who has a large breed and she gave the 4 drops every hour for 12 hours, and then went to every 2 hours -then to 4 hours. So I guess you can vary it for different breeds. She agreed it was amazing. She had 2 fading puppies and they are fine now.

Most breeders who have used this wouldn't have a litter without having a piece of beef liver in the freezer, just in case.
