Importance of Colostrum to Puppies

Spread the love

When I  arrived in our neighborhood what caught me is the tiny little dogs that are wandering to seek for food. They are very tiny that could be mistaken for chihuahua but they are not because they are local dog. I think they are too small because they didn’t get enough milk from the mother dog or they are not able to drink the first milk from their mother which is called colostrum.

Colostrum is the important first milk in puppies which provides nutrition, fluids, and immunity from disease causing organisms. Dogs and cats, like many other mammals, pass the majority of the maternal antibodies to the newborn via colostrum. Defined as the first 24 hours of milk flow following birth, colostrum is a highly concentrated mixture of large protein antibody molecules, water, vitamins, electrolytes, and nutrients

My Uncle who owns the dog call them Brahman’s dunno where did he get the name it is from the cow’s breed or from watching cartoons during day time.
