2oz Nurser Bottle:


Directions for Mixing: Gently shake or stir one part powdered Esbilac into two parts of warm water (a part is a teaspoon, tablespoon or cup.) Do not use a blender. Reconstituted Esbilac should be refrigerated.

Directions for Feeding: All puppies should receive their mother’s milk for at least 2 days, if possible. The colostrum milk gives extra nutrition and temporary immunity against some diseases. Warm reconstituted Esbilac to room or body temperature before serving. Feed kittens 2 tablespoons (30mL) of liquid Esbilac per 4 oz. (115g) of body weight daily. The daily feeding amount should be divided into equal portions for each feeding. Puppies' needs will vary and this amount may have to be increased or decreased, depending on the individual. Young and/or weak puppies should be fed every 3 to 4 hours. Older puppies can do well being fed every 8 hours. Weigh the puppies daily to assure adequate feeding. Consult your veterinarian for additional advice.

Storage: Unopened powder should be kept in a cool, dry place. Reconstituted Esbilac must be kept refrigerated for up to 24 hours. Opened powder must be refrigerated for up to 3 months, or frozen for up to 6 months to preserve freshness.

A Common Question

Do your milk replacer powders need to be refrigerated?

Yes, all kitten and puppy milk replacers must be refrigerated after opening. Esbilac® and KMR® powders are milk-based and contain fat, therefore have the potential to spoil under certain conditions. They can also experience bacterial growth when stored improperly. The can of powder has to be kept in the refrigerator or freezer after it has been opened. The powders will keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 months, or in the freezer for up to 6 months.
