Not familiar with k9 puppy gold, Yum Puppy by lintbells is the only puppy supplement I know of over here

Any puppy milk replacement/formula would be fine. I was just showing an example of one. Not necessary that you get that one specifically.

I got Bella at like 6.5 weeks I think. I thought she was 7.5 when I picked her up, not that it's any better. She had a hard time with bite inhibition and it was hard to teach her not to bite us so hard. That is the main issue she had. She was a larger pup, at 7 weeks she was 2 lbs, so we didn't have issues with blood sugar levels. We got her littermate, Izzie at 10 weeks, so they started fighting and playing together, so now Bella has no issues with bite inhibition. I was in the same boat you are in now, it was a bad breeder, (Backyard Breeder) and she was getting rid of all the other pups, so if I didn't take her, someone else would very quickly. A couple of the pups were already in their homes, including Izzie. It all worked out fine in the end, but I think it would have turned out differently and I would have a different Bella on my hands if we never got Izzie as well.

Now that I know better, I would make sure to go with a good breeder in the first place that I knew kept pups til 12 weeks. It's fun to have them so young, but not good for them and their future... and it is not a sign of a good breeder.

Thank you for the article on hypoglycemia. I am also picking up some milk replacement today. I will be picking her up this afternoon around 4 pm here. Spending today making sure everything is ready for her I have raised kittens before from about 3 weeks old who lost their feral mama so I think I will be fine with this pup. Good luck to you Chrissie! Your little man is absolutely gorgeous.

I have found another milk replacement over here Beaphar Lactol Milk supplements for puppies, which seems to be one of the leading brands over here from what im seeing at the minute.
The last time we went to see him was at 5 weeks old, he was the smallest one i think thats why we fell in love with him. I hope this doesnt mean he will have future problems though.
I know that the breeder i am getting our puppy from has bred other dogs before, but this was the first time they bred their female jack russell with their male chihuahua, so i dont think they have properly done their research.
Thank you Erin, same goes for you Yes weve had to raise kittens too before as their mum abandoned them poor things.
Fingers crossed all goes well
