Exclamation Need help brindle pitbull pup

I have a 3 day old brindle pit bull pup, its a long story i don't feel like explaining. But my question is what are my chances of keeping this guy alive and we'll,i've raised cats up on milk replacement from the pet store and i am a reptile keeper (300+ reptiles) so i'm very responsible and money is no issue.

The pup is 3 days, i'm going to get some milk replacement today, i have him nice and warm right now,set up with a heating rock set to a thermostat (i have it on 85f,what would be a good temp to keep it at) with a bunch of towels.

How long will i have to keep the milk Replacement thing up,and is there any specific brand i should buy? Like i said money is not a issue, so give me the top 5 milk Replacement formulas. Thanks you. And any other advice is greatly accepted.

The first thing I would do is call your vet. They will be able to tell you what it needs for the best chance of survival. If your lucky they may know of a dog that might take it in with its own litter and nurse it. Also my aunt got a pup that was too young to leave its mother when i was a kid and she took an old alarm clock(the ticking kind) and put it inside a stuffed animal to mimic the mother's heartbeat.

You will have to bottle feed for at least 3 weeks. Keep baby warm. You must stimulate the pup to tinkle and move its bowels.

Don't give it cows milk, they need special formulas. After it has nursed you need to make it pee and poo by rubbing it with some warm moist soft cotton to make sure he eliminates. There are also lots of sites on the internet that will help you. Most Vets have a special formula for orphan pups so I would contact them. Hopefully it got to nurse from the mother so it has some protection against disease.

Use the Leerburg formula, base is evaporated milk. You can find directions for making it on their site.
