Go To Food For Many Situations

First, I whelp litters for rescues. Dams frequently come in bad shape, and often with parasites and poor nutrition. My most recent dam, a Great Pyrenees, went into preterm labor (temp drop, etc) and I expected to lose the entire litter. Even had little plastic bags ready for the puppy bodies to take to the vet for cremation together (and would bring them back home). I syringe fed Mama, who also became sick with bordatella, a combination of mostly starter mousse, ebsilac and water 4x per day. Because she was in labor, she was not hungry, and this is so gentle and digestible, she thankfully did not throw it up. It was the only type of food I could hide antibiotics in and get her to eat. She held onto her litter long enough to deliver, after 8 days of preterm labor, 10 healthy puppies. Starter mousse helped her maintain her milk production and the litter is fabulously healthy (although mama is still skeletal). The babies are 23 days old, and today, I gave the litter a small amount of starter to help support their mama as we are headed toward gruel. They loved it and it has not caused diarrhea. I have many other stories of rescue Mamas and their litters and the benefits of this product. I actually also use it to stimulate appetite with starving rescues who are not pregnant - it’s gentle and kind and full of great nutrients.

Perfect for weening!

I was given some of your starter mousse from a friend who has a rescue. My French Bulldog had just had her first litter and I was completely new to raising puppies. All six puppies LOVED the starter mousse and the starter kibble. They transitioned to solid food so easily and grew to be gorgeous healthy puppies! So much so, that other breeders were asking what I was feeding them because they looked so healthy. I just love the product and will continue to feed my future litters the same!

Save their lives and my time

I have been breeding dogs for 25 years and have in the past made my own starter mousse. Never again this is the best BABY FOOD I could feed my babies . They love it right away and it has all the good things in it they need. When the momma dog has little milk the babies have such a great stat with 5is food.

Quality of product improves puppy growth and coat.

We see the positive improvements with each litter of Toy Havanese. Our Dams prefer this mixed with the Mother baby dog dry, too. This is the mousse used for weaning puppies, and overalll, it has helped with every aspect of appearance, health, and nutritional demand.

Love this Product

I started using this product when I had a mother in whelp that was being very picky. Its like the food had exactly what she needed and it kept her eating through the pregnancy. I continued to use it through nursing and now use it with the weaned litter and give to all my expectant mothers! Great product.
