Esbilac's Goat Milk Powder is the top choice for replacing milk for puppies with sensitive stomachs.
This powder is recommended for puppies that are orphaned or rejected as the runts of their litters. This powder can also act as a replacement for those puppies or as a supplement for growing puppies and older dogs that require an easy-to-digest nutritional supplement to their meals. Though primarily natural goats milk, the formula also provides a caloric pattern intended to simulate dog milk in protein, fat and carbohydrates.
The easy-to-digest Esbilac Goat Milk Powder supplies dogs with all the necessary nutrients to ensure growth and development goes smoothly. To use the powder, simply mix it in with water or additional wet food to make a delicious meal that's good for your dog. The powder is also great for rehabilitating a dog after a surgery or for rehabilitating wildlife like squirrels, rabbits or opossums.

Directions: Gently shake or stir one part powdered GME into two parts of warm water. A part is any measuring device you use: teaspoon, tablespoon or cup. Do not use a blender.
All puppies should receive their mother's milk for at least 2 days, if possible. The colostrum milk gives extra nutrition and temporary immunity against some diseases.
Reconstituted GME may be fed at the daily rate of 2 tablespoons (30 mL) of liquid per 4 ounces (115 g) of bodyweight. The daily feeding rate 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. Small or weak puppies may need to be fed reconstituted GME every 3 or 4 hours, while larger puppies do well when fed reconstituted GME every 8 hours.
Weigh the puppy daily to assure adequate feeding.
Consult your veterinarian for additional advice.
Reconstituted GME should be fed at room or body temperature.
