A lab?! Come on James...be a man...get a springer! (I've got some nice ones at the moment...)
Nice looking pup. Now for food ! I would feed as much Goats milk as the pup will drink mixed with at least 4 egg yolks per day up until 12 weeks of age.Solid food. Again as much as the pup will eat until 5 months.Raw tripe mixed with pedigree puppy food. Once you have stopped with the goats milk continue to mix 2 whole eggs into the tripe mix shells and all.If you cant get tripe buy Butchers tripe in a can.Vets will tell you this diet is not good for a pup ! Hey what do I know ? My pups are twice the size of all the pups I sold from my last litter.
Hey, hey, hey!!!! A puppy! Bracken! Gorgeous name, gorgeous girl (I presume) So, you didn't get the Whippet pup after all! Think I may outdo you on the X Factor tho' - Frankie giving birth four days before Xmas, three days before the wedding of the year!!!! Scan next Wednesday - odds at the bookies so far are:Peter 3Lorna 4Nancarrow Stud Dogs 8 - OUCH!Totally agree with your friend on goats milk - but turn it into ambrosia creamed rice - not so sure about the eggs tho'. I also swear by Butcher's Tripe. ENJOY your pup and I look forward to the day we meet.... xxxL
Disagree on the feeding, but not going to recommend what you expect! Milk of any variety is not really suitable for a weaned pup, especially not mixed with cereals and 4 eggs a day is ott.They may grow fast but fast growth is linked to various joint problems no matter what the diet. I would recommend up to 4 eggs a week complete with shells and a variety of minced chicken, liver, beef, tripe, rabbit etc plus a scoop of bone powder or raw bones. The pups should also get blended raw veg for vitamins and if you want to use cereal cooked white rice is the best. i am basically not a fan of mixing commercial and home made diets.
