    for god's sake, dogs will eat/drink anything. you might as well piss in its bowl, won't make a difference to them. don't worry about gettin all these fancy supplements, they're not baby humans.

    NO. DO *NOT* feed your puppies pure soy millk!

    Buy a puppy milk replacer at any feed store or a vet. You can severely hinder your puppy's immune system and stunt his growth. He can develop infections from a weakened immune system. You need to get a synthetic puppy formula. It's the cloest thing to mother's milk. DO NOT use cow milk either!

    Soy milk is not a replacement for mothers milk, it will not have the nutrients that puppies need for proper development.

    May I recommend going to a pet store and buying the puppy formula they have there.

    Also agree with huggy_bunny.

    You didnt say if it was a litter of pups or a general question about weaned pups. Either way, it is a no-no.

    As for human babies and children with soymilk - studies have found soy milk doenst have all the nutrients needed and is bad for babies if used alone

    yes it can, has plenty of vitamins and as long as thier eating it well with no abnormal reactions hang in there, you got to be a caring person to bottle feed puppies, just like children2-4&6 get plenty of rest you'll need it for the next couple of weeks Good Luck
