I adopted a puppy yesterday because his mother died. He is a GSD and Belgian Malinois cross. I have never raised a 1 month old puppy.
I gave him about 200 ml of cow milk mixed with some baby formula (cerelac) yesterday. Is it enough?

Hi for some reason I can only see your answer. Firstly please do not give your puppy cows milk, dogs cannot digest it, or formula made for human babies either. You need to buy some Puppy Formula such as Lactol which is specially designed for puppies.
You also need to make sure you stimulate bladder and bowel functions like the puppy’s mother would. Dampen some cotton wool pads in tepid water and gently wipe over the puppys bottom and genitals after each feed.
The puppy also needs to be kept warm.
Good luck and I hope all goes well.
