    Hello! We bought powdered milk for our little puppy .The puppy is 30 days old - breed Yorkshire Terrier . From the sixteenth day of its birth it is visibly weak,continuously whines and shrinks in some corner. Can Bovine colostrum powder be given to him with powdered milk?Is colostrum harmful for him?

    What type of powdered milk are you using?

    Have you bred this pup and, if so, are the rest of the litter feeding well from Mum?

    Is this particular pup gaining weight?

    Do not give him bovine colostrum powder.

    Because this puppy is four weeks old.

    By that age, you should be weaning him off milk. He needs food, not bovine colostrum.

    Again, what powdered milk are you giving, have you attempted weaning, how much does the pup weigh and has he been seen by a Vet?

    Is he still feeding from Mum?
