Fading Puppy or Weak Puppy: Beef Liver Remedy
Recipe for fading or weak puppy...from what Ive been told it is a true life saver!! Thought this worth passing on...print and kept for safe keeping!
Beef Liver Remedy For Fading Puppies
Large piece of Beef Liver - boil slowly in a small amount of water (5 minutes or
until the blood comes out).
Let cool-drain the liquid ONLY; 4 drops into a dropper and feed the weak puppy.
First dosage every 2 hours for 12 hours, then every 4 hours. Continue for however long needed until the puppy is thriving on its own.
Don't feed or use the liver itself, it is far too rich; use only the liquid
hope this helps

This is another formula that I was given.
(1-cc) every hour until the pup will suckle on mom.
1/4 C water, hot
pinch of salt
pinch of no salt (potasium)
1 Tbs. corn syrup
Let cool and keep in fridge. Dispose after 24 hours.
It is recommended that the pup not be feed formula until it is able to suckle and then stop using the mixture.

I do not breed for tiny pups I want to show one of my babies some day. I come to all of you for help on 2 things. One I gave a puppy that isonly 2oz. I am bottle feeding but will not nurse. I love all my puppies no matter large or small. And will do everything to save them. Will this liver thing Help her? I worry so over all my babies. I am use to 4-6-oz pups not one sooo tiny. I have nurse mate I put it in her bottle along with karo. I have no nutri drops and am affraid if I order them now the may not get here in time. Also I have a female that has had 5 litters never had any defects. she is 8 yrs and this was her last litter. I bred her to Baily he has the champ backgrownd. I wanted to keep female. But Daisy lost her water and the babies 3 all were still born one had no back legs. Daisy lives with my Mom not me. But I got the call at 3am. Was the defect because of Baily? or her age? hope you don't think bad of me for breeding a 8yr old female but shes a big girl and was skipted so I though It would be ok she is fine. But scared to use Baily now. would love your input. Thank you DENISE

tube feeding vs bottle feeding
I have never bottle fed a puppy and believe in tube feeding as it is faster and you know they are getting enough and sometimes they will start nursing as they get stronger but mostly you end up tubing them for three to four weeks........I loved it as I formed a special bond with the pup. it is easy to do and if you give me your phone number I can help you but first you must go to the vet to get a small tube.......the smallest they have.......I think they use them for AI and I used Mamalact..spelling not exact but your vet should have something that can be used as a formula.....mine was a powder and I had to mix it .......I would be glad to help you out if you need it......your vet can give you a quick lesson in tube feeding .......just remember to put it in the mixture first for moisture and then glide it along the right side of the mouth......if the pup gags or makes noises then it is in the wrong place.......they usually help to glide it along as they know it is food......it is so hard to explain in a letter......I have free calling if you like.....

I hope you can get to the breeders group.
I see you're not on now.
Bottlefeeding always worked with mine.
I would have her out by herself on a heating pad in a tote.
I know my mamas tend to push the tiny sick ones to the back.Away from the others and off the heated area.
So I always choose to remove them and put them by themsleves.
Tho not everyone does this. I hope you come back on.
I hope we can help you more.
