    Exclamation UK Esbilac alternative

    Hello, I would like to know if there are any suitable formula alternatives to esbilac, in the UK (takes 3-4 weeks to order from US). I am using powder puppy formula from the store for the time being called; Beaphar Lactol Puppy Milk.

    I note that you can order it from Amazon UK.
    I hope that means they stock some local to you.
    I see they only show 5 in stock.. which makes me think 'in the UK warehouse'.
    I note the USA site shows unlimited stock.
    Check this page and see what the delivery time is for you....

    I have heard that Royal Canin's "Babydog" formula was okay, though that info is quite old. In any rate, try to always purchase a dried powder version of puppy formula, not a pre-made liquid.

    Read the label and look for "soy protein isolate" (or some version of that). It is a more digestible form of protein and inability to digest the formulas is normally the problem that you tend to have.
