Homeopathic Recipes for Fading Puppies, Runts and Nursing Moms

Miracle Liver Elixer for Fading Puppies

  • Start with a piece of raw or frozen raw beef liver. Put it in a pan with a small amount of water and simmer gently until the blood comes to the surface (about 5 minutes). Let the pan cool and drain off the elixer.
  • Give 4 drops(without regard to the breed) to the fading puppy. 
  • Repeat every 2 hours for 12 hours, then every 4 hours.

It has been suggested that for large and giant breeds you repeat the 4 drops every 1 hour for the first 12 hours,  then every 2-4.

√ When we used the Magic Liver Elixer the puppy rallied in 2 doses.Please note: we also gave tiny dabs of Nutri-Cal (by Tomlyn Products) just after the elixer.


Miracle Potion (Glucose) for Fading Puppies

* 5% Glucose Syrup
* 1 tsp white corn syrup
* 4 tbsp boiled water
* a few grains of salt
* a few grains of salt substitute
* up to a full dropper or 1 cc

Myra Savant-Harris’s Recipe for Puppy Formula – Liver Water

Boil one large piece of liver in a cup of water (add water if needed) until it is very cooked. Strain the liquid and freeze leftover liquid in ice cube trays and keep in plastic bag. 

Whole Goats Milk powder is preferred, but you can add 2 Tbs of Canola Oil to add the missing oil if all you can find is 2%

* OR – One can of 10-12oz canned evaporated goats milk, or evaporated cows milk – Goats milk is more like Canine milk but if that’s what you got in crunch you can use it. 

Mix in a blender, keeps in your fridge for 7 days. This is a thick formula, so adjust holes in nipples if necessary. It can be tubed. It has 10-12 calories per cc which should allow for good weight gain on your babies.

Myra’s thoughts on this formula:

  • It is thick enough to avoid aspiration
    There is enough yogurt to avoid diarrhea issues that are so common with tubing. 
    There is enough glucose to avoid hypoglycemia
  • There is also enough glucose to avoid constipation, common with tubing. 
    There are enough calories to set up a weight gaining pattern immediately. 
  • Amino Acids in sufficient quantities to avoid juvenile cataract. 
  • It is high in Fats, Proteins and Carbohydrates with vitamins, minerals and iron and designed especially to head off the problems we all seem to have with tubing/hand raised babies.

Weight Gain Recipes – this is great for the puppies in Rescue too!

Magic Bullets

  • Cheap hamburger meat [high fat content}
  • Lg box of Total Cereal (can substitute ground up dry dog food)
  • Lg box of uncooked oatmeal
  • 1 jar of Wheat Germ
  • 1 1/4 cup of canola oil
  • 1 1/4 cup of unflavored, unsulfured molasses
  • 10 raw eggs
  • 10 pks of unflavored Gelatin
  • 1 cup of flaxseed…ground up.
  • 2 scoops of Kelp

Take all dry ingredients and place in a bowl. I crunch up the Total while still in the box, and then pour all the other dry ingredients over it. In another large bowl put the hamburger meat and the wet ingredients.

Mix just like you would a meatloaf. Then make balls and place in freezer bags in the freezer. Thaw out as many balls as needed. Feed the Magic Bullets raw.

Remedies for Loose Stools

Firm It up Breakfast for Dam

Mix all together and feed as a morning meal in addition to her regular food.

* 1 tbsp Cooked Pureed Pumpkin (Not Pumpkin Pie Filling)
* 2 tbsp Yogurt (Live culture)
* 1 capsule of Slippery Elm (Open the capsule and mix the powder into the meal.)
* 2 tbsp Cottage Cheese
* 1 Hard Boiled Egg.
* I also add 1 tbsp of psyllium husks (or plain unflavoured Metamucil), if things are not firming up the way I like.

Bringing Mom into Milk..

Maddie after her first female puppy was born she seems just as happy as me to finally see her..

“Mother’s Pudding” for a Nursing Bitch 1

  • 1 package Vanilla Pudding (cooked kind)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 cups milk
  • 4 egg yolks

Cook on low heat to a pudding consistency. Feed by syringe if necessary at least 20cc twice a day of in bowl; Most will love it and will eat it readily.

“Mother’s Pudding” for a Nursing Bitch 2

If you don’t have a package of vanilla pudding on hand you can mix the following in a saucepan and cook to pudding consistency.

  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 6 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 cups milk (or one can evaporated milk plus equal parts water to make quart)
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 3 tsp vanilla

Feed with syringe, on spoon, or let eat from bowl.

“Mother’s Pudding” for a Nursing Bitch 3

  • 1 cup milk (I used powdered goats milk or manna pro)
  • 1 tsp. honey
  • 1-2 tsp. flax seed oil (keep refrigerated after opening bottle)
  • 1 raw egg (or two yolks)

1 or 2 junket tablets (crushed) (You’ll find these in baking/pudding section, it’s a thickener for some recipes, put a tablet in a small bowl & crush with back of spoon, then add the next tablet & crush, etc.)

Mix it up with egg beater or blender and let it sit at room temperature for 10 min. to let the junket tablets work. It thickens up slightly but is still quite easily poured.

Electrolyte Replacement Formula

  • 1 quart purified or natural spring water
  • 2-4 teaspoons raw, unprocessed sugar, 
    or 1-2 teaspoons of powdered fruit sugar (fructose)
  • 1 teaspoon Himalayan or Celtic sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon of Salt Substitute (Potassium Chloride)

Boil water, add sugar (or fructose) and salt. Stir. Let cool.
Refrigerate what you do not use, but do not keep for more than 48 hours; make a new batch. It is safe for pets, particularly puppies and rabbits.

This recipe was made available as a result of an FDA Health Alert regarding Xylitol and Aspartame being used in some formulations of commercial Electrolyte replacement products.

You can freeze this solution into an ice cube tray and put the cubes into zip lock bags for convenience. Then give Mom or pup an ice cube as needed. If they are reluctant to drink they might enjoy a frozen ‘treat’.

Fennel Tea to Help with Moms Milk Production 

Fennel tea is often used by human Moms to bring in their milk. It is good to see that it is a solution for the nursing Bitch as well.

* Fennel Tea
* 1 tsp of fennel seed, lightly crushed
* put in a mug and pour 1 cup of boiling water over the seeds
* let steep for 20 minutes and then remove the seeds.
* Add a bit of sugar or honey to sweeten a bit as it’s kind of bitter
* Let cool
* Dose is 3cc for every 5lbs of body weight, twice a day

You can also just as easily buy Fennel Tea already made..

Oxy Mama

Oxy Mama by Breeders edge is a postnatal vitamin herb chew that contains Fenugreek, Chaste tree fruit, and Motherwort in a form that quickly brings moms into milk. You can expect increased production within 72 hours.

Use for seven days before birth for females that have had milking issues in the past or before planned C-Sections to bring Mom into milk. Don’t start before 14 days as milking before birth increases their risk of mastitis.
