Beaphar Lactol Puppy Milk is a complete milk replacement feed for new-born and orphaned puppies, which has saved the lives of countless young animals for over 100 years.
Beaphar Lactol has a superior amino acid content and is enriched with essential vitamins and minerals, providing a perfectly balanced complete feed. Made from easily digested whey products it closely resembles natural bitch's milk. Ultra-filtration concentrates the proteins, and a slow drying process during production preserves the protein molecules, making it more nutritionally valuable. Contains DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid), which has been shown to help cognitive development and visual acuity.
Beaphar Lactol Puppy Milk can also be used for weaning puppies, pregnant or lactating bitches and sick or convalescing animals.

Using the scoop provided, add Beaphar Lactol Puppy Milk to warm water (allow boiled water to cool) and stir until completely dissolved. Allow to cool until lukewarm (38°C or blood temperature).
The use of proper feeding equipment is highly recommended, such as the Beaphar Feeding Set or Beaphar Feeding Syringes. These should always be clean and sterile. Beaphar Lactol can also be mixed with cold water for older dogs.
Prepared Beaphar Lactol can be refrigerated for 24 hours but should be reheated to 38°C or blood temperature for young animals.
COMPLETE DIET: For un-weaned puppies. It is important to weigh young puppies on a daily basis so that you can compare their daily growth increase with the growth tables from your breeder or vet.
Recommended dilutions: add 30g (7 level scoops) to 100ml warm water.
Use the below table for approximate feeding guidelines. The recommended volume per day MUST be split across the recommended number of feeds per day.
