Recommended daily dosage: it is impossible to give precise daily quantities due to considerable variations of age, size and breed, therefore “demand feeding” will often be your best guide. It is important to weigh young puppies on a daily basis so that you can compare their daily growth increase with the growth tables from your breeder or vet.
As a complementary feed for animals in large litters: additional dosage for animals in large litters, but still with their mother: If the youngster is completely pushed away by siblings or rejected by the mother, switch to the dosage for orphaned animals. In other cases, give Lactol milk as an additional feed to weaker youngsters.
Quantity as a complementary feed for weaned pups: 5 - 8 weeks of age: up to 4.0% of the body weight = 40 ml/kg. 8 - 52 weeks of age: up to 1.1% of the body weight = 11 ml/kg.
Quantity as a complementary feed for growing or adult animals: Pregnant or lactating mother animals: up to 1.1% of the body weight = 11 ml/kg. Convalescent or sick animals: up to 1.1% of the body weight = 11 ml/kg. Weaning puppies: After the 28th day, slowly change to a more solid diet including minced meat, puppy food, etc.
The quantity of Lactol given should be gradually decreased during the period the animal gets used to its pet food or home-made diet + drinking water.
