PUPPY FEEDING SCHEDULE
(also suitable for adult dogs)
MORNING: 8 TO 9 A.M.
GOATS MILK OR PUPPY MILK – Luke warm temperature especially in winter. You can also add some soaked oats to it. In summer milk by itself is O.K.
MIDDAY: 12 TO 1 P.M.
Beef minced or diced mixed in with Black Hawk Biscuits, 2 x a week feed some raw livers cut up with the biscuits. I also recommend using Farrells 4 x 2 baked biscuits for chewing.
With the mixture I normally add half a teaspoon Dolomite (Calcium & Magnesium) twice a week, also twice a week half a teaspoon Seaweed Meal and once a week Cod Liver Oil about 10mls in a syringe (Open their mouths and aim at the side of the mouth and squeeze the syringe slowly).
AFTERNOON: 3 TO 5 P.M.
With young puppies I give Chicken Necks (they love them).
With slightly older puppies I give them Lamb Necks (they leave only a little bit of bone). This helps develop their jaws.
EVENING: 7 TO 8 P.M.
GOATS MILK OR PUPPY MILK.
