Puppy and Young Dog

A specifically-formulated milk replacer that will give you the confidence that you are providing your new puppy with balanced nutrition at the most important stage of his life.

  • Ideal milk substitute for orphan puppies or for when your bitch is struggling to provide enough milk for her litter
  • Packed with all the essential nutrients that puppies need at this vital stage in their lives
  • Tried and tested formulation
  • Easy-to-mix for convenience


Analytical constituents:

  • Protein 23.0%
  • Fat Content 23.0%
  • Crude Fibres 0.05%
  • Crude Ash 6.5%

    All puppies should receive adequate colostrum from the bitch as soon after birth as possible. If this is not possible, then where possible a suitable colostrum replacement powder should be given as the first feed.


    Prepare the milk by mixing 200g of powder with 800ml of warm water and feed at blood heat (37°C). Feed frequency should be between 4 and 6 times per day. At around 3 - 4 weeks of age, Chudleys Puppy/Junior may be introduced.


    The amounts shown are only a guide and it is better in the early weeks to slightly underfeed than overfeed. Should any digestive upsets occur, reduce the feed rate immediately.
