Liver Remedy: Fading Puppies
1 large piece of Beef Liver
Small amount of water
Take a large piece of beef liver, add a little bit of water and boil slowly until the blood comes out (about 5 minutes). Let it cool, drain the liquid and put just 4 drops (no matter what the breed) into a dropper and give to the puppy.
Initially administer every 2 hours, for 12 hours, then every 4 hours. Continue until you feel the puppy is thriving.
DO NOT use any of the liver itself, only the strained liquid.
