|Puppy Milk Replacer Formula Recipe & Fat Gaining Recipe for pregnant
or lactating bitches or weight gain additive for high energy dogs (a few
others as well!).
|I have used this formula for the past 10 years for either supplemental
feeding of pups or when the time is needed for you to take the place of
the non lactating or deceased bitch. Hopefully it is never needed but if
and when the time may come for it, it can literally be a life saver! I
have completely raised both Rottweiler and Golden Retriever puppies
on this formula. It is so absolutely superior to any pre-made version
you can buy I cannot even put it into words. I have seen it take the
smallest weakest pups and turn them into healthy monsters! I received
this recipe a very long time ago from a German Shepard breeder
(which I would love to give credit to if you ever find this page!!!) and it
has completely set what I do now.
|This weight gaining recipe is one that I use constantly. I do not use it
to REPLACE the dogs food. This is an addition to their normal food. I
mainly use it for bitches when they are carrying a litter or nursing one.
I have not needed it as such but it would also be wonderful for a dog
that has a hard time gaining weight or a working dog that could use a
I mix this all up in two HUGE (and I mean HUGE!) cooking bowls at a
time and split the recipe between the two bowls. It is very messy and
there is no way around it. So just get over it! ^_^ Once it's all mixed
together, I fill up snack size freezer/zipper bags (about 3/4 to 1 cup),
push all air out and pile them up in the freezer. Of course for smaller
or larger dogs you can adjust the amount. This size just works well for
When bitches are carrying puppies, I give 1 baggy a day for the first
month. Then depending on the bitch, 2-3 baggies a day from then on
(remainder of pregnancy and through weaning time of the puppies).
I take them out of the freezer and place the desired amount of baggies
into a bowl and into the refrigerator the night before so they stay cold
but have time to thaw.
Of course nothing here is set in stone. It can all be adjusted for your
particular dogs needs but this is what I do 99% of the time.

Prepare these single ingredient fiber- and vitamin-rich
treats for your dog in 5 minutes flat!
All you need is five minutes prep time and a single raw
yam or sweet potato. Pure, easy, and unadulterated,
dog treats don’t get any healthier, easier or less
expensive than this.
• Preheat oven to 250° F.
• Scrub the sweet potato or yam. No need to peel.
• Cut it into thin slices (the thinner the slice the shorter
the cooking time) and place on a cookie sheet in a
• Bake in oven at 250° F for about 3 hours for slightly
chewy treats or bake slightly longer to get them
crunchy. Note: timing will vary according to the
thickness of your slices; just keep an eye on them. Or,
better yet, if you have a dehydrator, pop them in there
instead of the oven.
Sweet potatoes are a source of dietary fiber and
contain vitamin B6, vitamin C, beta carotene, and
manganese. Most dogs love the chewy sweetness of a
delish dehydrated sweet potato treat. And you can rest
easy knowing there’s no additives, preservatives or
anything extraneous added.
