Matthew,
The powder milk will give them the runs for a while generally but they get used to it. Full cream milk straight from the cow is supposed to be the best.

Give them the real thing, fresh cow's milk (or fresh goats milk, even better but more difficult to get and more expensive). Trying to cut costs when rearing greyhounds is foolish. With fresh cows milk they'll have stronger bones and be able to take the bumps better without getting injuries. What you spend on fresh milk you'll save many times over on vets fees down the line.

Goats Milk is the best as it does'nt cause any gut reactions, or at least its not with any of mines, its more expensive but corners should'nt be cut with young pups.

You will get this freely in any supermarket

I have found milk ok, but for my pups have now switched to yoghurt and cut out milk altogether. It's easier to digest and has more calcium

I use to use the calf powdered milk [ Denkovit ?] but now I just buy the powdered full cream milk.I put it over their kibble or bread and wet it with water enough for the milk powder to stick to the kibble the pups love it so do the racers.Use very little water and a good tablespoon of milk powder for pups about 1/3rd for the dogs in work

I'm with you there John. Powdered milk is the go for those not lucky enough to have Betsy living next door.

Matthew,
We looked at goats milk when we started out, and found it to be very expensive, and fresh sometimes was hard to find.
We did some research and found that Sea Kelp, non iridated would give them every thing they needed from the milk and more.
It is the highest form of calcium found on the planet. It is a power house of nutrition.
Since we have always give it to our pups as well as all our racers. We never use milk.
When they are older, the kelp will also keep there Thyroid in balance, as it is also very high in Iodine. Norwiegen is the best if you can find it. It also is very cheap.
For a young litter of aprox 6 we will give 1/2 teaspoon over the food at least once day. when they are older they will get 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon every day for the time that they are with us. All our racers when they comeback from the Amarican tracks look bald on their back ends, once they get back on the Kelp they get there hair back right away.

Matthew,
Ain't no farmer but "full fat milk" from stores is not the same as milk direct from the cow. Probalbly better than your ordinary milk though.

We're lucky to have a dairy close to us and so our pups always have as much fresh full cream milk as they will drink. Our current litter is 12 months old and have been on fresh milk from the start. I think the other forms are quite okay, but you need to introduce them gradually to the diet to avoid gut problems. I think it gets down to what is the most economical.

As my broodie's patience is waning with feeding her ten pups (month old) I've introduced some Di-Vetelact low lactose 3% but pricy and vets ran out of big tins so I went to Rural supply shop and they sold me some powdered milk suitable for a range of young animals including pups but it has 29% lactose??? my other option is fresh Organic cows milk 4.7% lactose and pretty cheap. Is it safe to feed fresh cows milk at 4 weeks? If I don't lift Broodie in and supervise she doesn't want a bar of it so need an option for when I'm on 12hr shift. Cheers
