Breeders' Edge® Foster Care Canine Milk Replacer (63263-Z)
Foster Care Canine Milk Replacer
We raise somewhere around 20 litters of beagle puppies a year and we tried this for the first time October 2011. We hesitated because of the price and we thought we were having good luck with the brand that we have used for the past ten years. Boy were we wrong. We have not had any diarrhea or hair problems. The puppies are fatter healthier and more active. We started the one litter on the other brand and I honestly thought we were going to lose them all so I switched and two days later they were all doing well and growing ever since. Do not be afraid to pay the price and order it now. It might be an extra 10 bucks but isn't your puppies worth it?
It is an acceptable milk replacer, but does tend to firm up the stools too much. My puppies got constipated and we had to give them mineral oil.
Best formula out there!!!
This formula gives puppies perfect stools and puts weight on them really fast. I have tried a popular homemade recipe with canned goat's milk, full fat yogurt, liver water, etc that everyone raves about, and also Esbilac- the GME and their original formula, but this formula has performed much better for my puppies, it instantly firmed their stools and they are just thriving. I am so pleased with this product I had to write a review, and I hardly ever go out of my way to write reviews. HIGHLY recommend!
Breeders' Edge Foster Care Outstanding product
My golden retriever has large litters. Twelve to fourteen puppies at at time. We have to supplement because there is no way the mom can feed all these babies enough of her milk to sustain them. We tried other milk replacers, but they caused diarrhea. When we talked to the Revival Rep she told us about the fabulous things in Breeders' Edge Foster Care. Probiotics for one, that, as you all know, help the digestive system stay balanced and happy. From the very first time we used it, the puppies stools were perfect. No issues. The puppies loved Foster Care and did very well on it. I use my own shaker that has a wire it in, to mix the formula. It works perfect with this product, completely mixing it in seconds. Maybe Revival will offer a similiar shaker with the wire because it is necessary in order to mix the formula properly.
Breeders' Edge ROCKS!
I have been a breeder of Mastiffs for over 40 years - if there is a formula out there I have tried it. I have been feeding canned goats milk formula for the past five years - ( we usually have huge litters and have to supplement, and often bottle feed 100%). Results were pretty good - expensive, but I spare nothing when raising my dogs. Then I read the ingredients and nutritional values for Breeders Edge - it is the closest thing to actual bitch milk I had ever seen.
I ordered a 20 pound tub - I can not begin to tell you how impressed I am. The puppies that I bottle fed were the healthiest puppies I have ever raised. Their poops were well formed and weight gains were excellent. I have never been so impressed with a product. I am ordering another tub for my next litter - I can't imagine using anything else.
