Directions for Use:

  • Body weight should not be used to estimate age. Use these tables only as a guide. The tables do not take into account regional differences in size or variations in size due to sex. It is important to weigh pups regularly to confirm growth.

      Provide fresh drinking water between feeds on hot days.

    • Feed Impact Colostrum Supplement to new-borns who did NOT receive maternal colostrum.

    • If uncertain about what to feed or when to commence weaning, consult your Wombaroo supplier.
