Cold Snap

Due to a cold snap, two of the yellow puppies became too cold and weak to nurse well. We brought them into the house to warm them and are syringe feeding them a replacement formula every two hours around the clock. The puppies and I were so tired on day two that we cuddled up together in my bed for a short nap.

Puppy Replacement Formula
8oz boiled water - cooled
8oz evaporated milk
1 egg yolk - beaten
1 Tbsp corn syrup
Mix all ingredients well. Use immediately or refrigerate for up to two days. Weigh puppy and feed about 30 milliliters of formula for every 3 oz. of weight per day in divided feedings every two hours, day and night.
