Fed during ill health and convalescence, Welpi will greatly assist in the return to normal health. It can be mixed as a milk or sprinkled on the food as a nutritional supplement. Fed daily throughout a dogs life, it will help digestion and prevent disorders through dietary deficiency.

How much? How long?


my puppy has been having two scoops of welpie each night. He is now 4 and a half months. Should I increase the amount or keep it to 2 scoops?

  • Non-Executive Director

At that age he should be coming off the Welpi and getting onto a more standard dog diet. I would actually be tempted to reduce the amount of Welpi. Giving extra large amounts of good nutrients does not always lead to a better overall diet. It is possible to have too much good food. Try to make sure that your main dog food is good quality, then I suggest you trust that and slowly switch over to it. Using Welpi long-term only makes sense if the main food you are offering is not very good.

If I want to make 1 pint of milk, how much welpi powder do I use

  • Non-Executive Director

You need to add one volume of powder to two volumes of water. So if you want to end up with a pint, you should add one third of a pint of powder to two thirds of a pint of water. (You can often find a drinking glass of about this volume, then add one glass full of powder to 2 glasses full of water.) It is best to add the water gradually to the powder in a mixing bowl and stir it in well, then gradually add the rest of the water.
