Has your formula been used on other types of animals? How would you feel about this being used on fawns?
I wanted to thank you for the great information that you have posted on your website. I only wish that my wife and I would have found your site 3 years ago. 3 years ago our Bloodhound named Honey died of bloat, 2 days after delivering 8 puppies. We ran ourselves ragged doing everything we could to save those puppies. We got horrible advice and were devistated when at 2 weeks of age some puppies got sick. We ended up losing 4 of the 8 puppies... but were thankful for the 4 we saved. We kept two of the females, and now use those girls as breeders. The questions and answers that have been posted bring back many memories... some good and some bad. We can now laugh at some of the posting that are joyful over the puppies pooping. We rejoiced many times of that ourselves.
The reason that I am writing is about the formula that you have designed. Not only do we raise bloodhounds, but we also raise whitetail deer. I have used some over the counter milk replacers for our fawns, and have had mixed results. Has your formula been used on other types of animals? How would you feel about this being used on fawns and would the ingredients need to be used in a different ratio to supply the needs of this animal? I understand you may not have much knowledge on deer themselves and the fawns needs, I am simply looking for a better way to raise orphaned fawns.
Thank You again for such a great website, Jack and Trish
Thanks for the email, I'm glad you are finding the website useful.
I don't know anything about a fawn's nutritional requirements, so I'm not sure about using the formula for a non canine long term. In an emergency for a few feedings I'm pretty sure it would be fine. Sorry I'm not more help!
