Bear Milk Replacer for Cubs

Bear Milk Replacer for Cubs

  • 1 quart goat milk (which has taurine and good fatty acids; but it you cannot find it, use whole cow milk.  Hopefully, the taurine in the egg yolks will be sufficient.)
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream (good fatty acids, some protein)
  • 4 egg yolks, raw (protein, good fatty acids, taurine, biotin)
  • 2 teaspoons fish oil
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil (or other vegetable oils)
  • 4 tablespoons plain, full-fat, unsweetened yogurt
  • 1 calcium carbonate tablet, finely crushed
  • 1/2 vitamin C tablet, finely crushed
  • 1/2 B50 complex tablet, finely crushed to powder

Mix and store in refrigerator.  If warming is required, warm in a hot water bath–not in the microwave or on the stove (damages the milk proteins).
