About This Product:

  • Wombaroo Dog Milk Replacer is a highly digestible, easily prepared milk substitute formulated to closely resemble the nutrient composition of bitch milk.

  • Use Wombaroo for hand-rearing orphaned puppies or supplementing bitches with large litters.

  • Wombaroo Dog Milk Replacer is a powder and is available in a 215g pack which makes 1 liter. It also comes in packs of 1kg, 5kg, 10kg and 20kg.

Directions for Use:

  • When unopened, the powder remains stable for up to 18 months if stored below 30º C (86º F) and protected from moisture.

  • To make one liter of milk, add 215g of powder to 300ml of pre-boiled warm water. Mix into a paste, then make up to one liter using pre-boiled warm water and mixing thoroughly. An electric whisk can be used for mixing.

  • Prepared milk can be stored for 24 hours if refrigerated, or up to two weeks if frozen.

  • Milk that has been thawed should be mixed well before use. Do not refreeze.

Hand-rearing:

  • Success in hand-rearing puppies greatly improves if they receive colostrum at birth. Impact Colostrum Supplementis available for puppies that did NOT get colostrum from the bitch.

  • Keep puppies in a clean, draught-free environment at about 30º C (86º F).

  • Warm Wombaroo Dog Milk Replacer to about 35º C (95º F).

  • Feed from a bottle with teat every 2 hours for the first three days, reducing this to every 4 hours by the end of the first week. Stimulate puppies to defecate and urinate after each feed.

  • During the second week reduce feeding to 6 hour intervals.

  • Encourage puppies to lap once their eyes are open and voluntary bowel movements begin.

  • To avoid dehydration during periods of hot weather give puppies a drink of pre-boiled water between feeds. Always offer puppies drinking water once their eyes open and they become mobile.

  • Consult your veterinarian or breeder for particular advice about caring for your breed of puppy.

Growth:

  • Different breeds of puppies have different growth rates. Caregivers should contact their veterinarians or breeder for information about the growth rate of their particular breed.

  • It is important to weigh puppies regularly to verify weight gains and determine the volume of milk to feed.

  • Overfeeding milk can cause diarrhea, so feed the suggested volumes in our tables.

Weaning:

  • When puppies are about four weeks old they should show interest in solid food. To entice them to eat solids, offer a small portion of puppy kibble soaked in Wombaroo.

  • Once puppies start to eat solid food, continue to increase the solids and reduce the milk in their diet until they are fully weaned at about eight weeks.

  • Consult your veterinarian for more advice.

Economy:

  • Wombaroo not only provides the best nutrition for your puppies it is also inexpensive to use -- less that $1 per day to rear even the largest breed of puppy.
