About Beaphar Lactol Complete Feed Milk Replacer For Puppies:
Beaphar Lactol Puppy Milk is complete milk replacement feed for newborn and orphaned puppies that 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 mother’s milk.

Features and Benefits:

  • Complete milk replacer made with whole milk perfect for newborn, underweight and orphaned puppies. Beaphar Lactol has saved the lives of countless young animals for over 100 years;
  • Contains superior amino acid content and DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid), which has been shown to help cognitive development and vision;
  • Made from easily digested whey protein. Ultra-filtration concentrates the proteins, and a slow drying process during production preserves the protein molecules, making it more nutritionally valuable;
  • Enriched with essential vitamins and minerals, providing a perfectly balanced complete feed;
  • Easy mixing – no need to whisk, simply mix with a fork;
  • Beaphar Lactol Feeding Set (Bottle, Teats and Brush) or Beaphar Feeding Syringes are ideal for helping you hand rear, or you can mix Lactol into wet food during weaning.

How to Use:
1. Using the scoop provided, add Beaphar Lactol Puppy Milk to warm water (allow boiled water to cool before use) and stir until completely dissolved.
2. 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 before feeding to young animals.

Dosage:
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 dilution: Using the scoop provided, add 30g (2 level scoops) to 100ml warm water. 1 litre of prepared Beaphar Lactol Puppy Milk contains approximately 1250 kcal.
