Directions for Mixing Esbilac Powder
Gently stir or shake 1 part powdered Esbilac into 2 parts warm water (a part may be a teaspoon, tablespoon or cup). Do not mix more Esbilac than can be consumed in 24 hours. Do not use a blender. Reconstituted Esbilac should be kept refrigerated. One 12 oz (340g) can of powder makes approximately 60 oz (1800ml) of liquid mixed 1:2. One 28 oz (794g) can of powder makes approximately 140 oz (4140ml) of liquid mixed 1:2.
Directions for Feeding
All puppies should receive their mother's milk for at least 2 days, if possible. This colostrum milk gives extra nutrition and temporary immunity against some diseases. Warm reconstituted Esbilac to room or body temperature before serving. Feed puppies 2 tablespoons (30ml) of liquid Esbilac per 4 ounces (115g) of body weight daily. The daily feeding amount should be divided into equal portions for each feeding. Puppies' needs will vary and this amount may have to be increased or decreased depending on the individual. Young and/or weak puppies should be fed every 3 to 4 hours. Older puppies can do well being fed every 8 hours. Weigh the puppies 3 times per week to assure adequate feeding. Consult your veterinarian for additional advice. The PetAg 2 oz (60ml) or 4 oz (120ml) Small Animal Nurser is suited for feeding most puppies. When puppies are old enough to lap, begin offering reconstituted Esbilac in a saucer. During the 5th week mix reconstituted Esbilac with Esbilac 2nd Step Puppy Weaning Food. Use of the Esbilac and 2nd Step will allow the puppy to be gradually switched to solid food. Pregnant and lactating females: Feed 2 teaspoons (4g) Esbilac powder per 5 lbs. (2.2kg) body weight daily. Growing puppies already on solid food, show dogs, and/or convalescing dogs: Feed 1 teaspoon (2g) Esbilac powder per 5 lbs. (2.2kg) body weight daily by top dressing food.
Reconstituted Esbilac must be kept refrigerated for up to 24 hours. Opened powder must be refrigerated for up to 3 months, or can be frozen for up to 6 months to preserve freshness.
