Milk Replacement Powder for Puppies

Milk Replacement Powder for puppies contains essential amounts of protein, fat and carbohydrates plus vitamins, minerals and amino acids that newborn puppies need. It is readily accepted by newborn puppies and produces excellent growth rates and weight gain. It can also be used to help meet the increased nutritional requirements during dogs’ pregnancy or in convalescing or elderly canines.
