Thus, they have proved even an excess of milk to be unsuitable for puppies of an age beyond the suckling stage. It is not only the iron or the copper, manganese or other substances that are deficient, but the natural milk is too watery, as it contains only a maximum of 15% dry substance, to 85% of water—an excellent preparation for an animal which itself ha*s a similar watery constitution.
